    Default Dale Davis Rumors-Updated 01/13/07 (1st post)

    http://insider.espn.go.com/nba/features/rumors

    UPDATE BELOW

    ESPN is reporting;
    In order to free up more minutes for Webber, Detroit may look into trading Dale Davis or Antonio McDyess, with the Pistons probably seeking a backup point guard or a small forward in return.

    Both Davis and McDyess have relatively attractive, short-term contracts that would generate some interest from teams that are seeking veteran, playoff-tested veterans. -- MLive.com
    ---------

    Saras for Dale works. Or if you prefer Saras and Harrison for McDyess works.

    Of course Webber hasn't actually signed with Detroit yet . . .



    UPDATE 01/13/07

    Jan 13 - Chris Webber can't officially become a Piston until after the three-day weekend, but a team source said Friday afternoon a deal was nearly done to bring the Detroit native home.

    Several signs Friday pointed to Webber's arrival in Detroit. Flip Saunders moved Rasheed Wallace back into his usual starting spot for Friday night's game in Atlanta, and moved Nazr Mohammed to the bench. -- Detroit Free Press

    Davis A Sonic?
    Jan 13 - Dale Davis had his agent, Chubby Wells, on hand in Philips Arena on Friday and was trying to ignore various trade rumors that have him on the way out of Detroit.

    "You hear the rumors, you just can't worry about it," Davis said. "You have to let things happen as they may."

    Pistons sources have indicated that signing Chris Webber will not be the final move before February's trade deadline, and Davis said Wells has spoken with president Joe Dumars. Davis has an expiring contract, always coveted by teams. -- Detroit Free Press

    # Bob Hill, who said Davis could help the Sonics inside, was at Indiana when the Pacers drafted the 6-foot-11 versatile post in 1991.

    "Dale Davis would be a very good addition to our team, obviously," said Hill, whose team is last in the league in rebounding (38.6). "There aren't a lot of those guys around, but Dale Davis would be a good one." -- Seattle Times

    # "We drafted (Davis) in Indiana and I love him," Hill said. "Dale Davis would be a very good addition to our team, obviously. There's not a lot of those (big) guys. But (general manager) Rick Sund is all over it, the ones who are available." -- Seattle Post-Intelligencer

    # The issue is matching salaries. The player with the salary closest to Davis' is Damien Wilkins, who makes $2.7 million.

    To meet requirements of the collective bargaining agreement, the Sonics would have to include a player such as Mike Wilks. -- Tacoma News Tribune

    # If Webber ends up in Detroit, the Pistons might jettison one of their other big men, perhaps Dale Davis or, less likely, Antonio McDyess. It's conceivable the Mavericks could have some interest in either.

    More probable is that they'll keep their roster the way it is. -- Dallas Morning News

    No.

    I'd rather keep Sarunas. Dale made his decision a while ago, he doesn't/didn't want to be a Pacer anymore.

    Are you sure of that? I thought someone posted he didn't get an offer from the Pacers. You can't work for someone that doesn't offer you a job.

    Bring Dale in right now. But I doubt there is anyway the Pistons let us get him.

    I think he might have gotten like one offer from us, maybe. But I dunno.

    I agree. There was speculation that one of their main reasons in signing him was to get him away from us.

    Thats exactly what it was. They didnt need him and you can see it by his minutes, they gave him 2 times more money then any team would have given him just so he isnt playing for us. If they needed a big man they could have signed some scrub to play 5 minutes a night for much less then 3 million per.

    I say paly the INTANGIBLE angle and pull out all the stops to get McDyess. I mean, TPTB would certainly part with a 2008 #1 for, arguably, the ASSIEST player in the NBA. (What's the alternative, giving it up for Freddie Jones and Anthony Johnson?)
    The dude is presently shooting 41.3% (FG) YET whenever I catch the rare Pistons' game, he can't miss; especially against the Pacers (it seems). In fact, I'd venture he's the ASSIEST shooter since Larry Johnson (shooting 3's) against the Pacers in the playoffs.

    Hey, *** can't be measured. The Pacers, one of the worst shooting teams in the league, could certainly use some ***.

    On the other hand, at least McDyess is mobile (major surgeries notwithstanding).

    As for DD: The last thing we need is yet another plodder.

    We can dream, can't we?
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    I'd hope it is not.

    Actually, Jax could be a good back-up for Hamilton. McDyess makes 5.8 mil which is almost idential to Jax's 6.1 mil.

    Also, with McDyess, Al would be a great possibility for a trade for a PG. Of course, it ain't gonna happen but I can dream, anyway.

    DD wasn't worth the contract then, and he isn't now. I'd say the same thing if Brad Miller were to be available. I couldn't see anything to make the Pacers think he's worth it either, unless maybe it was to dump a player they didn't want. If DW, or LB had wanted Dale I'm sure he would have stayed here if we matched the offer.

    We couldn't match the offer and pay Saras. Bird chose Saras.

    Exactly. This is why they signed him in the first place, to keep him away from the Pacers and to keep in reserve for Miami if needed.

    the situation is different now. when the pistons signed dale, we were still considered a contender (artest was still coming back the following season, remember). but now - well, we're still a top east team but that's because of the mediocrity of other east "powers" - surely pistons don't have the same reason to fear us any more. if we make the best offer then i think they would trade with us

    i do agree that i don't think dale wants to return. sure he came back for reggie, but if you can believe news reports he didn't care for antics of the rest of the squad

    As much as I would love to get rid of Tinsley and Jack,(and as much as I would love to have players like DD and McDyess), I just can't see the logic in giving up one of them for more frountcourt players when we are already crowded in the frontcourt, and weak in the backcourt. In my opinion, managment should only be considering trades that will improve us at the 1 and 2.

    Nooooooooooooo! (Rolling on floor kicking and hitting it)

    You have a point, but that would mean we wouldn't consider trading Harrington for Dwight Howard, etc.

    Of course that won't happen, but I think it illustrates the weakness of that argument.

    I believe you should upgrade any part of your team any time you logically can.

    Dale would be nice seeing back. But due to being in the same division
    that will never happen.
