Pistons should be looking to move up in the draft. They have a very nice opportunity in front of them. They need to change the face of the franchise and by doin that they would need to look to get rid of Tayshaun Prince's expiring contract and Richard Hamilton's long contract that shouldn't of been made. If they offered the 76ers Richard Hamilton and Tayshaun Prince along with 7th pick in the 1st round for Elton Brand and there 2nd pick in the draft. Richard Hamilton and Tayshaun Prince's contract would cancel out Elton Brands contract and we would bring Evan Turner to Detroit. Stuckey, Turner, Jerebko, Brand, or Villanueva or Wallace at the 5. I think this would change the face of the pistons for the better. What do you guys think? And thats not even considering that Dumars might be thinking about going and grabbing a SF or C in the Free Agency.

If the numbers agree, I like the idea for the pistons, not so much for the sixers though.

the 76's are getting the bad deal. they want cap space thats why they are offering elton who has a huge contract. the 76's are more likely wanting to land a star player it seems than building around a potential star in a rookie.

A realistic deal is

Detroit - Prince (expiring contract), Wilcox (expiring contract), (maybe Maxiell instead of Wilcox), 1st round 7th pick, 2nd round 7th pick

Philly - Brand, 1st round 2nd pick

Detroit might even have to throw in a future lottery-protected 1st round pick. This is a realistic approach to a trade with Philly.

I don't even think they are that bad. All they need to do is find a new coach, start Ben Gordon and have him be the number 1 option of Pistons. Then try trading Hamilton for younger pieces, perhaps for a solid front-court player.

Detroit would be foolish to give up Rip and Tayshaun to take on another huge contract and move up 5 places in the draft.

Turner isn't that good.

:clap:, this is a solid baseline for any deal the two teams would make.

Hamilton and Prince aren't that good, especially in comparison to Brand. Rip's deal ranks right up there with Brand's as worst contracts in the league.

If I'm the 76ers, the only way I'm moving the #2 pick is if I clear Brand's contract completely. They are at $67m right now, that's likely close to luxury tax territory for a team that best case scenarios competes for the 8 seed.

Sorry Bro

Why would they want Hamilton's contract when they already trying to get rid of Brand's contract?

Doesn't make sense to me and I'm a Pistons Fan

Now I can see this trade happening

Sixers Receive:
Rodney Stuckey
Tayshaun Prince
Jason Maxiell
Pistons 7th Overall
Pistons 2011 First Overall

Detroit Receive:
Elton Brand
2nd Overall Pick

While the Sixers will give up their #2
They will still receive young talent in Rodney Stuckey a proven talent PLUS an expiring contract AND a productive guy from the bench AND 2 more young talents for the future.

the pistons need to get to play run and gun style of basketball so everyones stats go up and then desperate contending teams wiht expirings will trade their players for piston players so they can win a championship and so the pistons can rebuild properly.
