Ellington and McGruder are listed as out.
Just need a double technical on Joseph and I can finally get the experimental backcourt I want

Josh Jackson isn't exactly making a case for sticking around

besides a couple times they fell asleep and let a blazer beat them down the floor for a layup, their defense has been really solid vs. a very good offensive team.

someone other than grant is going to have to step up offensively though...

Ok Im sounding the general alarm here. Unless we sit Grant and Plumlee and CoJo for 'rest' extensively, we are looking at the #7 (or worse) pick this year. These guys are just playing too hard to lose enough games the rest of the season with a coach like Casey.

I'm counting 10 very winnable games left this season and ending with a record of 23 and 49.

I really hope I'm wrong here, as the Pistons have done 'enough' to have a bottom 3 record but Im starting to get concerned. Especially once we really reach screw it season and the lower midrange teams stop caring.

With only three players over 23 tonight, this should be a nice developmental loss. Nobody told the kids though.

Were projected 4th worst only one game ahead of the Magic, two ahead of the Cavs, and four ahead of the Wizard. They also project us finishing 4 games behind the 3rd place team. They take into account SOS and players on your team etc.

So no you arent wrong we likely finish between 4-6 in the standings. It seems we should of just took some bad contracts in free agency rather then useful players and just "rested" some players OKC style. Notice they project the Thunder to finish worst now.

As if draft position isnt the most important factor of what should be a tanking season. The majority of the fanbase is cheering for us to lose every game. So yeah draft position is going to be a hot topic these days.

Diallo looking great again, Weaver has a eye for talent.

Which is good cause that's how teams like Miami and Toronto hit all the time later in the draft.

How the hell did we get Diallo for Svi and a 2nd, Svi isn't even in the same GALAXY in terms of a prospect.
