Yeah, then make Lavar the GM and change our name to Detroit BBB.

What magical assets do we have to make this happen?

I'd actually be right into Lonzo and it's something we should be able to pull off. He still hasn't really been given the keys to any team yet. His passing and vision is godly and he has great versatile defensive potential, it's just his inconsistent jumpshot which has hurt his confidence and held back his game.

From the article...
LaMelo, who is an offensive juggernaut,

BWAHAHAHA!

That circus would make the SVG years look like the good old days.

Who is the source? Seems sketchy and doesn't really seem to be founded on any real sources

There is no source. It's a speculation article and nowhere in the article does it even mention a rumor. The Pistons aren't "looking" to do anything of the sort.

I do really wish people would exercise more discretion when choosing to post things like this.

It’s clearly clickbait- someone’s unfounded speculation with a title that makes it seem like it’s got legs, yet it’s reposted here with that same slant without qualification.

Broken record at this point. At least respondents in this thread are reacting appropriately. If only the general public responded this way to nonsense, we might be better off.

Obviously not happening and would be a awful pairing that makes no sense together anyways. I do think they try to trade for Lonzo though.

I'd rather have Blue Balls than see the Pistons with 2 Balls.

Only if we can land LiAngelo, too. Need a Big Three.

At that point if you asked LaVar to join I'm sure he'd consider it. We'd have our starting PF. No need to re-sign Wood at that point. I mean, he could beat Jordan 1 on 1 back in his prime after all.

There are indicators that some people are drinking and taking drugs to excess during these trying times. Stay safe people.

Why stop at three? There's two more on the way -- LeVitro and LaDiculousness

I wonder what type of trade that might be?



Dream scenario for the Balls, I am sure.

Never Lost! The first playing GM in history.


You know what, lets do it! We are already pretty bad, we have to go all in. Trade for Westbrick while at it.

Buzz is Lamelo is going number one. Wade-lite apparently has an intangibles issue.

Any chance Wade-lite drops to #7?
