I just thought of this and I dont think this is even a good a idea, but an interesting one.

wait for it.....

ok ready???

Darko for Ron

Hear is how I see it. Whether you like it or not we ARE out of title contention w/o him. We will get a very young player w/ a lot of upside. He will have an opportunity to play here immediatly

It gives detroit another title this year bar none. But it also gives us a chance to take a chance on a player w/ way more upside than we would be able to under any other circumstances.

This is probably the most talent we will be able to get w/ ron.

High risk high reward payoff this could be similar to JO at portland...just stuck behind a glut of great players.
