Vince Ellis interviews Tom Gores

1

Good interview. Gores says all the right things, seems much more comfortable in this interview than when he originally bought the Pistons. And he believes in Greg Monroe! Further alienating PP readers, but endearing him to Srta. Kriz. Film at 11.

Greg Monroe Q&A from his trip to Africa

2

Cool Q&A I found on SI! Didn't realize Moose was in Africa for NBA's BWB program. Hopefully his trip is what has delayed his re-signing :)

Pistons assistant GM roles

The Jeff Nix hire rounded out Stan Van Gundy's three assistant GMs under Jeff Bower. Nix, Brian Wright and Ken Catanella will each have their niche.

Drew Corrigan on Andre Drummond

1

Doing a random search I came across the article from yup www.crabdribbles.com (anyone feel free to explain the significance of the name) written by Drew Corrigan who writes for Dime, Complex, and SB Nation affiliate Ridiculous Upside. Not alot of new information, but I mainly posted this to give some exposure to both the writer and this site, which I didn't know about till today. So what do you guys think about the site, and Drew Corrigan as a writer? (Not affiliated with the site or Drew in anyway, just like exposing people to other people's stuff.)

Andre Drummond "pretty sure he (Greg Monroe) is coming home."

Andre Drummond believes it and his belief shall make it so! And why not we all know Greg was the reason Andre was drafted ;) They're cosmically connected and you don't mess with the MOTHER-F-ING COSMOS!

Boston/Detroit Trade

4

Still impatiently waiting for the Monroe decision. Started thinking that a trade like this might help make Monroe's decision easier by shipping Smith out of town. The Trade: To Boston: Josh Smith (3 yrs/13.5 mill) Jonas Jerebko (1 yr/4.5 mill) 2nd Round Pick 2015 To Detroit: Brandon Bass (1 yr 6.9 mill) Gerald Wallace (1 yr 10.5 mill) Why Detroit does it: 1. Gets Josh Smith off the team. 2. Brandon Bass plays an average of 28 mpg, and would seemingly be a good fit platooning with Monroe at PF. If Monroe and Drummond both play about 34 minutes, that leaves 28 minutes for Bass. Bass isn't great, but his mid range shooting seems like it would be a good fit (56% from 10-16 ft according to basketball reference.com). He is also on his last year of a reasonable contract, so he should play well, if not, he's easily dropped. 3. Even though Wallace is on one of the worst contracts in the NBA, this move still gives the Pistons flex room in the future, and saves them about 18 million dollars total over the next 3 years. Why Boston does it: 1. Rondo and Smith have wanted to play together, this gives them a chance at a relatively low risk. Bass doesn't seem to be a part of the teams future and dropping Wallace and his terrible contract is bonus. If the Celts want to keep Rondo, obtaining Smith could help to keep Rajon happy. 2. Jerebko could become a solid player here, where he seemingly would be getting his minutes pinched again in Detroit. 3. The 2nd round pick makes sense for a team in a slight rebuild.
