Another Trade, with Draft Gazing in Mind


With the blood rushing to my head over the excitement of the Pistons making a trade, I began speculating immediately on what might still transpire. As I look around the league one of the most likely teams we might deal with seems to be none other than the team we just played - the Indiana Pacers.

Specifically, Paul George has laid claim to the small forward position and Danny Granger might be available for the right price. Would Joe Dumars pull the trigger on another deal to perhaps send Rodney Stuckey and Jason Maxiell as a package that matches Granger's contract?

Looking at the draft it seems unlikely that the Pistons will get one of the premier scoring wings, but there should be an abounding quantity of very good big men to choose from to back up our center and power forward positions. Getting Granger might be the best solution to add a scoring wing that would complete the puzzle.

If, as reports are indicating, Granger should be back and ready to play after the All-Star game, it might be perfect timing to start to fit all the new pieces together: PG Calderon SG Knight SF Granger PF Monroe C Drummond, and start to create some chemistry. Obviously depth would be affected but we would still have PG Bynum SG Singer SF Jerebko PF Villanueva C Kravtsov.

I checked the NBA Trade Machine at ESPN, and this is a doable deal. I also plugged the recent deal in, to see the results. (http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=asr4ob3)
