Corey Maggette Trade Was Genius

you are missing the point... you always go for value. A proven player is worth more than a draft pick (and less in the hand of Michael Jordan) NBA is all about winning now, you trade the future for right now look at the heat and the Knicks. You are making your argument from an NFL point of view where an aging player/ retired is worse than a draft pick. the Nets gave away all their 1st round picks for a retired/ retiring player. That is why we will always be in rebuilding phase

Dude just stop. That's how u get a superstar. U get high draft picks. Trading maggette was the right move. I wouldn't take 5 maggettes for one biyombo. Just think about it. WTF would we be doing with maggette. We might win a couple more games and he wouldn't matter. But with the picks we get him from him we can possibly get a superstar

It wasnt a one sided trade. Both teams won in this deal. We added a future 1st round pick (possibly 2014) while the Pistons created some cap space to go out and sign Josh Smith, Billups, and traded for Jennings. We are rebuilding and getting younger and the Pistons are ready to contend in the East this year.
