    Russillo and Vecenie talked about how much they liked Procida for five minutes on a pod earlier this week. I know nothing about him, but they basically said he's all over the place but can shoot and is athletic.

    I guess the Duren pick is official. Weaver is doing a presser about it now.

    Weaver comparing Stewart/Duren to Horford/Williams with Boston and says they can play together. I just don't see it. Part of why it works is because Horford is 10x more skilled offensively than Stewart and one of the smartest defenders in the league over the last 15 years.

    I hope this isn’t accurate. I don’t think adding some mid level guys is going to move the needle much.

    The Pistons now move into the next phase of their “restoration” with one of the more intriguing young cores in the NBA — Cade Cunningham, Ivey, Saddiq Bey, Isaiah Stewart and Duren — as well as enough cap space to make a run at a max-level player. However, while all signs have pointed to Detroit making a serious run at Phoenix’s Deandre Ayton over the last few days, that appears less likely after the Pistons walked away with two of the players highest on the organization’s big board. Per sources, Detroit is eager to continue to build back toward playoff contention with the aforementioned young core, and the Pistons are expected to use the majority of their remaining cap space to add multiple veteran pieces rather than just one big swing this offseason, per sources.

    On top of that we have a lot of players. Not sure we need "multiple" players.

    I think Bridges would be the better fit over Ayton. Shooting isn’t the greatest though, and have concerns with distractions (rap career and playing closer to home). Still better than signing two guys for $10 mil a piece.

    After their attendance for the past decade, they should allow you to call in and make whatever type of package you want.

    What does a lineup with Bridges look like? I imagine we try and dump Olynk over the summer.

    G: Cade
    G: Ivey
    F: Bridges
    F: Bey
    C: Duran

    BN: Stewart
    BN: Hayes
    BN: Bagley
    BN: Diallo
    BN: Olynk
    BN: Joseph

    Edwards saying he believes the plan is multiple vets in FA or trades over one big max signing...

    Honestly I think with Bagley, Stewart and Duren, chances of keeping Olynyk go up. Unless they can find another stretch big

    More like "how about you go trade for Duren and then give him to us."

    I'm still confused as to how that convo shifted from Ivey to "go make a dumb deal on our behalf" and they just did it.

    Glad to read this. Seems to me instead of throwing everything at Bridges they should be looking at someone like Bobby Portis. Portis is 27 yrs old, 6’10”, 14 & 9 last year shooting 40% from the arc.

    Cade
    Ivey
    Bey
    Portis
    Duren

    Thats a fun team and the pieces work together.

    Edwards already writing off the playoffs. Give me a break. $50 million in cap space, we should be in the play in tournament.

    Depends on what they do with that money. It's possible, but if we stay this young, it seems like it would be very difficult doesn't it?

    He’s expected to decline his player option ($4.6mm) and become an unrestricted free agent.

    correct. If they don’t make any other moves, this is a bottom 5-6 team in the league.
