    Pistons sign Jodie Meeks 3 Years 19 Mil

    He shot 40% from behind the arc last year. He fills a need. Thoughts?

    We over payed for him, that's for sure, but that doesn't surprise me seeing as how this is Detroit.

    Glad we got him, need floor stretchers in the worst way. Curious to see what Morrow will get in comparison, I'd have been happy with either guy but preferably the cheaper one

    Pretty much. The money is not ideal but so long as he can really bump up the 3 point % I'll be satisfied. Worst comes to worst he'll be an expiring contract at the end of next season so if he really blows he can be dealt pretty quickly.

    I don't think SVG wanted to put KCP in the position to be starting because he hasn't seen enough to be convinced he's ready for it.

    Meeks is only slightly overpaid but he is a really good fit here. People in NBA forum are pissing me off talking mad *******!

    We will have to wait and see what else happens.

    I do know that I'm still not comfortable with

    Jennings/Bynum
    Meeks/KCP
    Singler/Martin?

    I saw him play in LA last season, and year before.

    He started out really off, but came on.

    It will be interesting to see if not playing on a 25 win Laker team in which they never were really in games changes him.

    But, 3 years and 19 million. 6 per - isn't that bad.

    But if you're Ariza, Hayward & Parsons and do more than shoot 3's, you have to be very happy.

    lol my buddy is pissed out of his mind, totally overreacting. You'd think we signed Darko to the Max the way he's flipping out

    This has to be just the beginning, I know SVG wants Thomas and I know he must have a sign and trade lined up. 6 mil for Meeks is not that bad to me.

    New @DetroitPistons G Jodie Meeks was 6th in NBA in points/poss as spot-up shooter (min 250 poss). At 26, he's the youngest among those 6.
    People keep bringing up Mike D'Antoni as to why he had such a break out year, maybe that's the reason why...or maybe he busted his ***, put in work, and improved as a player. Plus people act like Van Gundy's system doesn't cater to players like Jodie Meeks..

    I dig this signing. A tad high on the price tag but what are you gonna do...

    If we have to pay Meeks 6 to watch Stuckey & his 8 million walk out the door....I'll do it every time.

    I saw this coming from a mile away. I am pretty happy with the signing, wish we could have got some other things done first. I was thinking he was worth around 5-6mil$ per, so the contract isn't that bad.

    Sixers fan here. Really pissed that SVG set the market at over 6mil for below average role players.

    Meeks is a 2-3mil kind of player.


    gotta pay the troll toll
