    This makes no sense whatsoever for Utah.

    Yet again, other team fans have that look. That look of...... How? , Why? , Why are teams helping the Pistons. Joe Dumars is going to get it done. It's reported it might be done by today.

    Peter Vecsey

    Carlos Arroyo, reduced to fourth point status (DNP-coach's decision, four straight games) for not conforming to Jerry Sloan's team concept and refusing to back off his macho stance, will be traded, but positively not to the Clippers. Look for the Pistons to get him today for Elden Campbell and a future first-round pick.

    Big move for Detroit. Got to give Dumars credit for getting this done. I would have loved to see Arroyo here backing up Tinsley for a future a future 1st rounder and our 12 or 13 guy on our bench.

    Still can't believe it until you see it on ESPN.com or NBA.com

    It may happen, but Vecsey's blessing means *****

    Why the hell do people try to ruin our lives? There are 28 other teams, couldn't they trade to them?
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    Huzzah on another one-sided Detroit trade.

    And before anyone argues with me, don't. I'm talking about on-court basketball not their financial bottom line. Some one wake me up when they're out of extra picks and expiring contract to ship out like candy.

    It's annoying as hell, but you have to give Dumars all the credit in the world for getting these deals done.

    This was a really stupid trade for Utah. Makes no sense whatsoever to me.

    You see, Joe Dumars is secretly a Jedi Knight....he's using Jedi mind tricks to "persuade" other GM's to make these trades.

    Watch out if he gets to Donnie....we'll see JO going to Detroit for Antonio McDyess or something.

    Unlke a year ago this trade does not have me quaking in my boots.

    Decent trade, Campebell really has not been playing.

    But if I were a Pistons fan I would wonder if Eldon might not come in handy against Shaq

    Dyess and Darko plus a 1st round pick? I'll do that.

    I'll be jacking off thinking about Sheed @ the 3, JO @ the 4 and Ben @ the 5.

    JUST IN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I think I heard them say that the Jazz will waive Elden and the Pistons will pick him back up. I don't know for sure.

    But the deal is done and awaiting league approval.

    I was wondering that when I first read your post. If that's true, wow. The Pistons will have acquired Carlos Arroyo for a future 1st round draft pick.

    That's a phenomenal deal. I was so impressed with Arroyo in preseason that I made him a 6th round pick in my fantasy league (with 12 teams). And it makes absolutely no sense for Utah. Their other 3 PGs are Lopez, Eisley, and McLeod. None of them are the long term answer there. Why not keep Arroyo?

    Because they overpaid for Okur and Boozer, that's why. So, now they have to clear some cap room.

    I guess Sloan hates him, and Sloan runs that franchise

    Oh well, I guess most people thought this season was in the tank anyway.

    Dumars is obviously in another league as far as GMing goes. I look for the Pacers to stand pat and tell us that "there is no panic in this locker room."

    Sure, but Arroyo only makes $4 mil a year.

    It's not like he's got Cro's contract.

    The draft pick will be a bad one.

    I just don't see this making sense for Utah.

    Add me to the "props to Joe D" list for pulling this off.

    On the plus side, just think how valuable Croshere will be when he's in the last year of his contract! :-)

    I don't understand why Sloan didn't like him. I saw him play live against the US national team in an exhibition game in the garden. He really stood out as a very solid and fearless PG and more than held his own against the people he was guarded by. I'm not saying Sloan doesn't know what he is doing but Detroit for sure got a great, great backup PG.
