    Default Trade involving Pistons and Celtics could be on the way...

    istons: get:
    Mike James
    Chris Mills

    get:
    Chucky Atkins
    Lindsay Hunter
    1st rounder (and possibly cash)

    This is basically to clear space for the Pistons to re-sign Memo. They're apparently still working to get Sheed, but don't hold your breath. Keeping Memo is Dumars' primary concern. Sheed would just be a bonus.

    While that is true, the SECOND Atkins is dealt to Boston, we will make the deal with Atlanta. Thats what has been coming out of the war room all morning.

    I agree though, first priority is getting that extra cap space.

    If we move Corliss and Campbell too, we'll be 20 million under

    Isn't Detroit sending some of the stuff to Boston that they were sending to Atlanta originally for Sheed?

    Not really, other than Hunter.

    We'll just turn around and send Mills to Atlanta in Hunter's place.

    We also have Milwaukee's pick that we can send to Atlanta.

    So, who would Detroit be sending to the Hawks? Mills, Rebraca, and Sura?

    Mills, Fowlkes, Rebraca, sura, possibly Milwaukee's pick, i think.


    Darvin Ham could also be traded.

    Wallace
    Billups

    Thats 8 guys.

    Of course, thats assuming we deal all 5 expiring contracts to Atlanta. Im not %100 certain we need to do that.

    If you have only 8 guys when this is over, that's suicide.

    Well, thats an extreme scenario, Im thinking wed find a way to keep ONE expiring deal.

    We can always find guys off the scrap heap. Doleac was just waived today, for example.

    They'd have to be signing players, there's no way the union or the league allow that (and I'm pretty sure its against the rules.)

    But the only rule I can think of is that teams have to dress eight players for every game.
    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 believe the rule is you have to have 12 players under contract.

    Like I said though, we can always scour the waiver wire for 3 contracts or so.

    I'm not even sure that teams have to have twelve players under contract, back in the day - before teams began using the injured list as a taxi squad - this happened from time-to-time. However, the union may have insisted on this rule in one of the more recent CBAs.

    Besides, there's always the NBDL, too. So its not like this trade can't happen just becuase it temporarily leaves the Pistons with eight players.

    I think the Detroit-Boston trade would be part of a three-way deal with Atlanta.

    http://www2.realgm.com/src_checktrad...radeid=1531090

    Detroit gets Wallace and James for Sura, Rebraca, Atkins, and Hunter

    Atlanta gets Sura, Rebraca, and Mills for Wallace

    Boston gets Atkins and Hunter for Mills and James

    Atlanta and Boston would probably also each get a first round pick from Detroit.

    Detroit's roster would have 10 guys:

    Billups
    Hamilton
    Wallace
    Wallace
    Okur
    James
    Prince
    Ham
    Fowlkes
    Campbell

    AGreed, except no way can we deal James. Hed be our only backup PG.

    Wed be dealing Ham instead most likely.

    Detroit would get James in the proposal I made.

    That's a terrible trade for Boston in my opinion. James is better than both Atkins, and Hunter, I guess it's all about the 1st rounder, although it's going to be in the high teens from Milwaukee, or in the 20's if it's Detroit.
    "It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."
