No way Grant comes off the bench. I think Blake is the sixth man as of right now or Grant starts at SF and move to PF later in games.

I think it could all work if Ariza is somehow dealt to Denver for Grant. But Detroit would need to add sweetener. Maybe the FRP sent to Houston rerouted to Denver given the Wood S&T. I hope it's not Sekou.

"Not being done yet" stopped being a source of comfort after the Grant signing.

Why the hell did we sign 3 centers? Okafor, Plummer, and Grant who can play both positions?

What the hell happened

I think the better question might be:

Why did we stretch/waive a C (Dedmon) just to sign two C’s in free agency?

If Troy Weaver doesn't know who Mike Valenti is.....he's about to.

Rose
Svi,
Grant
Griffin
Plumlee

is awful. Rose, Grant and Plumlee cant shoot. Its a PG that can only slash with Svi who runs hot and cold plus Griffin?

Weaver should be fired. Anyone on this board could have put together a better roster, without any of this 4d chess BS.

That was the only way to get worse in the future, while also getting worse in the present?

He was actually all excited and bragging about him too which is never like him to like anything the Pistons do, he's about to go off :lol:

Grant just isn't a SF, if he's playing SF its going to be bad. He could be good as a 4 though

So Pistons have ~$150 million or whatever in Griffin/Grant/Plumlee ---- But the future is Bey 3/4 tweener, Sekou 4 and Stewart 5. And they wont have any playing time?

Sounds like the Pistons to me!

he literally has 0 guard skills, he cant dribble and averages 1.1 assists per game for his career. His ideal position is 4

He’s never been asked to make plays before....but yeah.....he’s just not a $20 mil per season type player. He’s a complimentary role player on a good team type

He’s 6’8 or 6’9 and 210 lbs.

He can’t rebound or block shots.

He’s a role-playing glue guy we just overpaid for. He’s a SF who we can’t ask to make plays. He’s always played with good PGs
