Okay Thon Maker going to Detroit is not exactly big news...at least it ain't to me but Maker is basically going to ride bench anyway

Blockbuster? This so tiny of a trade it should of been tossed in the news section with the other tiny junk trades. Maker wanted minutes. Will he get any behind Drummond? He was crying to get minutes behind Lopez and Lopez doesn't play as many minutes as Drummond I bet. Haven't paid much attention to Johnson. Is he a good shooter? Can he defend?

Pistons fans were very high on him because he was doing a decent job defending LeBron and was a youngling with some hype. Those days are over. Four years in the league and still inconsistent at scoring, playmaking, and shooting the ball. You're getting someone who has grit but that's pretty much it. Seems like it's a trade that could potentially benefit both of these players who have been thus far, underwhelming.

Maker is gonna be coming off the bench with Drummond being starting 5 and or if they put Maker at the 4 position he's gonna be on the bench in favor of Blake so there's that

Jokes aside, the kid can defend. He will help them. The Bucks to me are the favorites at the moment to get out of the East. The Sixers are right there as well and i'm not sleeping on Boston. The Raptors, we'll see. I would like to see them make a move for Mirotic.

Everyone said the same thing about Brandon jennings.

Who'd we get in that deal? A player htat struggled to get minutes and will be a $100m man in the off-season

No. Stanley Johnson. Last time we got a SF from detroit in a buy low deal was Khris middleton

Hardly the same. KM wasn't playing for the Pistons the entire season and was traded the next season after only playing under 30 games. There wasn't enough data to judge KM's game. Stanley's been in the league nearing four years already. You already know what you're getting from him. Maybe it changes but four years of bad play is enough evidence to work on.

Good defender and lousy shooter. meh. Also RFA this summer so we'll let him walk. I would of rather got a second round pick for Maker and open a roster spot for a buyout.

Who is "our"? I've lost track. You said you were a LeBron fan, so does "our" mean you and LeBron? Or are you talking about the OKC Sonics?

I think Mirotic would fit on pretty much any roster in the NBA ... except maybe wherever Portis ends up.

Eh.....it's a bust for a bust. Maybe each team is hoping that a change in environment helps. Stanly Johnson should be OK if a team KNOWS HIS ROLE. Pistons drafted him to be a all around player and he is not. Put him out there for some defensive play but don't expect much on offense. Maker.....not sure how he fits into the Piston lineup. If he wasn't happy with PT in Milwaukee, then he probably won't be thrilled playing behind Drummond/Griffin.

I don't like it or dislike for either team. At the end of the day, it probably ends up a transaction that will be forgotten quickly.

But Detroit been putrid for a while now. Bud might get a little something out of Johnson. If not let him walk as a RFA next summer and save a little cap.

As a former d. Town thug 😂😎 this trade is good for both. It provides change of scenery for both. For bucks it gives depth for playoffs. For Detroit maker and Drummond are a pretty good duo. I think this might even be a setup for a Blake Griffin trade. The stones are coming back babyyyy🤣🤣🤣🤣. Not really. But the red white and blue have a good future. Command out 😎😎😎😂😁.

I'll take BG on the Raptors for OG, Val, FVV and maybe a pick. I think he'd help a tonne offensively and outs them over. Raptors already have elite defense, although they are losing a nice defender in the trade too.

Yeah I'd be sad if we chose middleton over him via FA relative to the $$ they'll make.

I wouldn't mind a middleton trade. I dont want a long-term extension with him for the max. Rather take our chancs on Kawhi, Klay, Jimmy buckets, KD, or AD

So you really don't think I'm an OKC fan, huh? Either that or your lame attempt of a joke is as lame as it gets.

LeBron fan = I support the team he's a part of.
NYK fan because everyone benefits in NY when the Knicks do well. You have no idea how many Knicks fans in NYC literally don't talk about the Knicks because they are ashamed of them. When Jeremy Lin was creating a buzz here, everyone from the train to restaurant were talking about him.
OKC fan because we're the "Seattle" team replacement.

It's likely you just used it as a joke. Fine by me. Just don't act stupid.

I honestly don't know if you were talking about Mirotic for the Lakers or the Thunder. And this reply to my question doesn't really clear it up.
