    Trading Gordon instead of Stuckey: Bad Move?

    Should we have gave Gordon a chance at starting? He only started 65 games out of the 196 games he played for us(most in one season being 27)...a number of people here has stated we desperately need a shooter opposite of Knight....& with Stuckey bad play, its making me think we traded the wrong guy(again!)

    I know it sounds crazy but look at it now, we're the same freaking team minus a 1st rounder down the road....the way things are going we're going to need it. Did Dumars jump the gun? And did we jump it by getting all happy for a relatively small move

    Yeah he jumped the gun. I'm still mad about giving away a 1st to anyone who'll take Gordon. But with Stuckey, Joe probly would've had to give away two 1sts

    Stuckey hasn't been scoring efficiently, but his overall game is better than Gordons and Knight as well.

    I think trading away a player in order to get assets is far superior to giving away assets to get rid of a player.

    What is more of an asset, a non-lottery pick or $10 million in cap space?

    With us being a small market, any help would do whether it'd be picks or cap relief, assets overall would do us wonders, we just don't have any at the moment.

    So I guess we should have traded our lottery picks for proven players the last few years then?

    Detroit isn't as poor of a market as most posters on this forum seem to think.

    We are likely the 10th-13th best NBA Market. Some experts put us around 7th too and the lowest I've seen us rated is 16th. When determining "market" what is commonly looked at is; population, average attendance over a large sample, value of TV deal, value of merchandising, brand recognition, quality of life.

    However, I understand that in the NBA if we're talking superstars the good markets are really just; LA, NY, CHI. Throw in parts of FL, parts of TX, parts of Eastern Seaboard area too. You're looking at - Lakers, Clippers, Bulls, Knicks, Nets, Heat, Rockets, Mavs, Wizards, Celtics, 76ers. As markets that are certainly better than ours.

    We are in a tier with the likes of Denver, Phoenix, Atlanta, Minnesota, Portland, Toronto. 11-17th off the cuff, depending on what stats we use, Detroit could push sub 11 too, hard to push us outside the top half though.

    So the Detroit Market isn't terrible. However, I agree we are unlikely to be able to lure a big free agent, as we can't really go deep into the luxury tax to assemble a good supporting crew with some stars. As our value isn't large enough to warrant the expenditure on salary.

    I just wanted to point out Detroit is likely a top half NBA market, depending on your metrics potentially a top third.

    We are one of the better sports cities in America.

    Normally this is where someone would say get rid of Suckey and problem solved. Problem is he isn't worth squat right now. That Boston trade offer passed up continues to look like a bigger, and bigger mess up.

    Gordon is having a better season so far this season than Stuckey...plus, we most likely wouldn't have to surrender a 1st rounder in a Stuckey trade.

    IDK, if Gordon is better than Stuckey or vice-versa but IMO it's not like one is far superior than the other....
