An inside look at the Detroit Pistons and the NBA.

Tuesday, June 23, 2009


A trade rumor reported on ESPN had the Pistons rejecting a Boston proposal in which the Celtics would have dealt their starting backcourt - Ray Allen and  Rajon Rondo - for Detroit's 3 perimeter starters - Richard Hamilton, Tayshaun Prince and Rodney Stuckey.
If there's any truth to it, it's an audacious proposal by Boston. Allen is on the downside of his career, so you'd basically be giving up 3 starters over the long term for Rondo. If you took Prince or Hamilton out of the equation, that would be an equitable but somewhat useless trade. How would that make the Pistons dramatically better?
I'm sure they'll be several more rumors like this before the Pistons either sign a couple of free agents next month, or make a huge deal.
