Could the be the start of more Josh Smith trade rumors to SAC?

7

Rondo wan't out and Sac seems like a logical place for him to go, problem is, Sacramento doesn't have very many assets to trade. But if Rondo is going to Sacramento and we've already been in talks with them and Smith we could send the 2 buds packing (Rondo and Smith) as the Pistons would be a 3rd team in the trade. What are your thoughts?

The new NBA 2k15 trailer is bad ass.

Except there's no Pistons footage, and I worry Shaq will get a little exhausting..

FACIAL.

Even if he's cut, Andre's time with Team USA not a waste.

In ESPN's WARPed world, Josh Smith is a Top-5 PF

5. Josh Smith, Detroit Pistons Projected 2014-15 WARP: 9.8 --- Smith has enough of a track record that his 1.6 WARP disaster from last season doesn't wreck his forecast going forward. He's still just 28, and healthy, so there is little reason he can't return to his days as a double-digit WARP performer -- if used correctly. That means putting a stop to habits like finishing 17 percent of his possessions with 3-point attempts, even though he made just 26 percent of them. One thing saving Smith's outlook is his RPM profile; it actually was positive on the offensive end and was again well in the black on defense. Stan Van Gundy will figure this out.

Is SVG AFI? More about soon-to-be-non-Piston Greg Monroe

+

A day after the Pistons's announcement of the signings of two players with historically insignificant NBA careers in Aaron Gray and Cartier Martin, this article from the Washington Post succinctly lays out why Greg Monroe is apparently leaving the Pistons. It's a good read and really makes me question the performance of the Tom Gores regime to date; it may be the most inept currently in the NBA. We have pinned a lot of hope on Stan Van Gundy to turn that perception (and reality) around, but today, I not only wonder if that's the case, but I openly declare that, if he loses Greg Monroe for nothing after Monroe's agent engaged with 5 different teams on S&Ts, then SVGIAFI. Thoughts?

Monroe to Sign Qualifying Offer

Well, so much for that "empty threat." Let's hope SVG moves Smoov and convinces Monroe to help lead the Pistons each game with a Drumroe for years to come.
