I said it when the rules changes started that Big men, real ones, would all of a sudden become massively important again.

Last night?

Went nuts. Check out the box scores from around the league. Pistons gotta land a true, big son of a bitch to be in the paint, and do work in the post again.

One thing to note is the fact that there's just a dearth of actual bigmen that didn't flame out of the NBA. So all of sudden, the mid tier bigmen like Vucevic & J Allen (who I always liked) are suddenly worth so much more to their teams. I'm sure the rule changes helped a bit but the league will still favor non big guys that you can feel comfortable putting the ball in their hands to handle and make plays over the ground and pound style in the older days

There haven't been too many games for me to get excited about this year but I'm looking forward to the W's/Suns matchup tonight. Coming into the season I didn't have either team ranked this highly but I'm quite happy to be mistaken. Should be a fun game.

Thats why I like scouting college ball games as a Piston fan. We're always bad and might as well try to watch the future instead lol.

Would you guys accept a trade revolving around Patrick Williams and Coby White for Grant?

I would imagine Weaver would considering how high he was on Williams in that Draft.

If we're taking, I always like considering trading for injured players. Helps the tank and you can usually get them at a discount. Not that our tank needs much help at the moment but in theory we will put it together eventually. I really like what Patrick Williams has shown before his injury and think he's going to be a really solid player in this league for a long time. Not a star, but a guy who fills a role as a 4th or 5th starter and is a positive impact player.

If we could get Patrick Williams, Coby White, and Portland's 2022 first round pick(top 1-14 protected) for Grant its a move we would have a hard time saying no to. I think Portland makes the playoffs this year at the bottom of the West and likely that pick ends up being in the 15-18 range.

Grant also is likely the exact player the Bulls need (unless they can get Simmons) to help put them in a legit position to have a chance to win the East. He would slide in as a great 3rd option for the team that also is one of the better guys in the league at defending Giannis and KD, who will almost certainly be players the Bulls will face in the playoffs the next two seasons.

It appears Tayshaun Prince is a candidate for the new vacant Portland GM position.

Would be wild if he gets the gig, with Chauncey already there as coach!

I forgot he had any type of executive career. In fact I pretty much forgot he existed after 2015.
