Love how they didn't even get a good action shot of Glenn for this tweet. Were there any?

I'll miss Ish a lot. Ellington? He had his moments but wasn't here long enough to get too invested. Glenn? Well, I hope he has better luck elsewhere, he just didn't work out here at all and I'm glad we only committed one season to him.

Yeah I'm definitely going to miss ish. He was a great back up guard. It felt like he got better each year too. Like his shooting especially seemed like it improved. I'm sure someone will have stats that prove otherwise haha. Anyway, he will be missed.

Didn't care for Wayne since he's not really anything that can't be had elsewhere. I will def miss Ish, he was a good signing at the time and bailed us out a few nights when the inevitable RJ was out. He's probably one of the best and underrated backup PGs in the league.

Him and Kief backing up our bigs looks real nice. Sounds like we're very interested in signing him.
Makes sense too when we use Thon in our trade for Westbrook :wink:

This beauty idea saves them the necessary luxury tax this year and leaves us looking like this

Dre Howard
Blake Kief
Brown Sekou
Luke Thomas
WB Rose

Let's go!!!!

I haven’t seen any interest in Howard where did you see that? Also as much as I appreciate having his talent level as a back up. If we did get Westbrook I’d be very concerned with our locker room. WB, Howard, Griffen, and Drummond in the same locker room sounds like a toxic mix.

The Hawks purportedly celebrated the day Dwight was traded to the Hornets. That's a really bad look especially since that was a well coached and chemistry level team at the time. I don't know if Howard is worth that baggage, even if it is a minimum.

Why not Koufos, Udoh, Chandler, and even Monroe...?

Do we even have cap space for a vet minimum deal without going into the tax?

Weren't the Pistons one of the teams checking out Amare? I know Dwight has claimed to be reformed, but if we're going old school, I'd rather kick the tires of Amare. I don't think there is much mileage left on him though, but certainly I would consider him over a locker room jerk, especially one as irrelevant as the 15th slot on the roster.

Thanks! On pure talent level if we got Westbrook we would have the most talented roster since the 04 days. On a diva level we would have the most Diva’s ever to Don a Pistons uniform of all time. Only comparable most Diva team would be the RIP and Iverson days.

I'd be happy with Koufos. Good value for the minimum.

Kyle Lowry for Reggie, Snell and a pick? Maybe add Drummond and Gasol in the deal? Where does that put us in the east?

Im at a loss on what to do with this team. This is such a tough location to build a team at i swear.

We deserve more credit then we get for our titles cause we were always the little engine that could type but man its hard to build here.

Its gonna take getting lucky drafting a top 10 player then building depth around him. Blake is a hell of a player but trying to get another player here with him causes us to have to trade all our depth and climb back up the mountain.

We'll never move forward if we're scared to take chances on star players whose value are currently low. I'm seriously on the fence with this organization man. You have a chance to compete but you decide not to offer a pick. You have two All-NBA bigs, but you don't trade for a star guard to feed them. This isn't the Pistons I've always loved. Not at all man.

Why in the world would we do that for Lowry but not offer that deal for Westbrook whose also the better player?

This team has me depressed
