Pistons Trade Brandon Knight to Bucks for Brandon Jennings

20 posts in this topic

It's a sign and trade, I'm not sure what else is involved... I just saw it on ESPN. Seems like a lateral move on both sides, IMO.

The Pistons pick is ours.

I'd take McAdoo, Harrison, Austin, etc

This.  The pick is top 8 protected this year.  Definitely a decent chance we end up with three firsts.

Such a one sided trade, even as much as I hate Jennings.. It's like trading him for a box of rocks.

Absolutely. We're almost guaranteed two 1st as of right now. The Portland's pick is a very good chance.

Brandon Knight was probably my favorite player out of that 2011 Draft behind Irving and ahead of Kemba. Thought he was gonna be a beast. Turned out very mediocre.

Anyone see who else the Pistons gave up? I saw it was reported that it was two other players, but they weren't named.

    • Do you realize on Day 1 of the new NBA season - we will be over the cap by $12 mil!!!!!!!!

      Our disgusting roster puts us over by 11.7 mil to be exact, but that is EVEN WITH the Cap going up from last year.. Naw man, naw.. Cho has got to go.. he has to.. You have a bit of wiggle room, maybe, in that we have a team option on Sessions - so we can save 6 mil by not picking that up - but then we need a backup PG as our #1b priority (#1a = wing scorer).. and anybody knows a backup PG worth a damn is easily gunna cost us more than 6 mil for sure.. Naw man.. he fugged the team.. maybe he was just doing what Jordan told him to do - but that doesn't make it any better:
      - if he made the move because he is a shitty GM and talent evaluator = Fire his ass, you aren't fit to run a NBA franchise
      - if he made the move because Jordan was pressuring him and he caved = Fire his ass, you aren't fit to run a NBA franchise
    • He was still standing in a field in his underwear and worried somebody enough to call the police. Do you really want this guy? He was obviously cut for a reason. Teams don't draft players in the 1st round and not give them every chance to succeed. Are you really a PHD?
    • What makes you so sure Pryer is better competition than Marlowe and Blechen? Those are developing players that already know the defense.
