    Phil/Mill/Horn are all talk and no action!
    Phil n Mills received a Grade of F (failure) in our past 3 offseason transactions .. the two were all talk and did nothing on draft night again.
    And head coach Horn first season did no change from Rambis foolishness nor did Horn add any concept of winning games by adding defense into the mix. The reason Horn should have been Fired at the end of the season were the poor non-development of the five rookies, and the two 2nd season players showed no improvement in their talent or communication with teammates.

    Rondo and Smart are the perfect compliment to WHG and KP. Plus, all the young players in ChI, in their exit interview, raved about how instrumental Rondo was working with them.

    Then add a Alan williams or a Justin Simmons and NYK might sneak in as a 6-8 seed.

    Rondo
    Smart
    Simmons
    KP
    Noah

    WHG, Dotson, Baker, Frank, LT and KOQ....

    It's a start.

    For Smart I would give up a 2020 1st (and maybe even a 2019). I can't deal next year's first tho.

    I would just sign Smart as a free agent, if it came to that.

    This rumor has enough details in it that I'm almost inclined to believe it. Still, the other GMs are going to need smelling salts to wake up Mills and make him participate in anything.

    The trade makes sense for several reasons:

    I feel like the only way a trade of Melo happens is if POR or BOS get involved as the third team, and HOU would be the engineer bc of Morey.

    POR has a bunch of redundant players making silly dollars. The guy a C from DEN and have 2 great guards.... they could use a stretch 4 like RYNO, and they are in win-now mode.

    For NYK, they get rid of Melo and add 2 young players (and probably a future 1st for taking back "bad" contracts.

    HOU gets Melo.

    Awful trade if no picks are involved which is more than likely going to be the result of trading Melo. That's 3yrs of us taking on $20mil of salary, we need cap relief just as much as anything else going forward

    I do like Mo Harkless, but he should've been here on a draft day trade

    Don't worry, for the trade to happen Mills is going to need his cell phone and he left it in his other pants and his other pants are in the room next door and he wasn't planning on going back in there for at least 3 to 6 months.

    Mills is making his power play to run NYK and what better way than to convince Dolan the only way out of this is to do nothing and stink for 3 years. Sign guys from Ruckers park or YMCA and lose as much as possible.

    Mills is thinking that PHil did nothing for 3 years and made 60 mil..... he'll do the same for just 6 mil.

    That's actually a dope trade for both teams. This means KCP is more game the kid I said we should maybe have looked into going after. He will cost major coin but if you're going to gamble he might have been worth it.

    Ainge finally traded a draft pick....

    The Pistons are trading Marcus Morris to the Celtics in exchange for Avery Bradley and a future second-round pick.
    The Pistons were able to get the better end of this deal, as Boston was forced to clear cap space to sign Gordon Hayward to a max contract. The Celtics have a logjam on the wing and did need to add depth up front, but ideally they needed to add a banger who can board. Morris is a skilled offensive player, but averaged just 4.6 rebounds last season (fewer than Bradley) and has a career rebound rate of just 8.9 percent. It will be tough for Morris (who averaged a career-high 12.7 FG attempts last season) to match his numbers from 2016-17 now that he is in Boston.

    NYK waive Plumlee

    Okay yeah "finally" lol...that tweet read wrong and ESPN corrected later. It's a good trade for both teams once again. Pistons are now stuck with deciding on what to pay Bradley or lose him for nothing
