While Knicks fans want to piss away the season just so Frank can develop...

Avery Bradley, Tobias, Marjanovic and a first rounder for Blake is the rumored proposed deal.

Pistons are in the same boat as the Knicks. They could just piss the season away, trade their vets for picks and cap space or try to get Blake Griffin to play with Andre Drummond and push for the playoffs

You know why I'm here....

I think it happened. Bleacher report just confirmed it.

That is a great trade for the Clips. MY guess is they move Jordan next.

Yeah, Piston's put all their chips on the table. Is SVG still defacto GM? Moves seems desperate.

Treadmill move. Clippers are more talented and Blake couldn't carry. Plus factor in injuries, cap ramifications... I dunno.

Desperate? Blake is still a top NBA player. When you trade for a guy like that, that makes you desperate? 22, 8, 5...

Pick is protected 1-4. At least the Pistons we're Smart enough to do that.

Clippers are injury riddled. They were losing because of that not cuz Blake sucks. Good try though. Gallinari and Beverley played 11 games. Milos 22 games. They are 25-24... they would be better if they were healthy. Anyway whatever

those numbers mean absolutely nothing when you're injured all the time. dude averages 20+ games missed a year (literally). glad the pistons got him and not us.

We don't really need him so it doesn't matter.

True, but I didn't say Blake sucked. Just that Blake alone won't carry the Pistons to ECF. That's even if can make it through the rest of the season. Plus, the have no more assets to plug in holes. I've always pulled for Reggie Bullock, but man...he's their starting small forward.

I think the big takeaway here is the Pistons landed a star, which is tough to do in Detroit. SVG got the players who could combined for a package to get Blake, who is a big name player that can help them attract more fans and give them a shot at the playoffs. He did his job and owners must be very happy.

Pistons won't win jack this spring. Fun trade for us to dissect but it will have very little long term impact on the Pistons. Sure they got better. How much better? I'd rather stay the course with the Knicks and suck it up for one or two more seasons. If you can trade off guys like lee or KOQ for younger assets, let er rip....
