    Default New Post at 'The Fan Hub': Pistons might be after Calderon?

    A post at the popular web outlet suggests that the Pistons should pursue Jose Calderon, and offer Corey Maggette and Austin Daye in return. I certainly, for one, hope that Colangelo is not contemplating such a move.

    Having said that, a deal that would center around Kleiza/Pietrus for Maggette might make sense for us, giving Maggette a chance to make another run at his carreer, and bringing to Toronto that coveted explosive wing player who is not afraid to penetrate to basket. Bring the discussion on.

    I don't think Maggette at this stage of his career is any better than what Fields/Anderson/Ross provides.

    At the end of the day, he's a $10 million expiring contract, just like Calderon. Inconsequential move, IMO.

    No to Maggette. No fit for the future and too old. Rather keep Calderon and play Ross.

    No to Daye. Another mediocre to below average wing.

    Can't trade Pietrus until March 1st.... after trade deadline..... and he is a vet min, expiring anyways.

    Pistons can't trade a 1st round pick so they have nothing I'd want outside of Monroe or Drummond.

    Would they take on Kleiza? That would be incentive but not enough. Their 2nd round pick and Kleiza? Hmmmm, maybe, but it would be a no other options trade on February 21st.

    I didn't think it was possible to call Magette "explosive" anymore with a straight face. Perhaps you are a Pistons spy?

    Magette is an expiring deal, moving Jose for him gains us nothing really. Daye is an interesting prospect but I'm not sure that it is the best fit.

    If they took Kleiza off the Raps' hands and added a 2nd rounder I'd consider it. That's a whole lot of cap room.

    Like this! http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=b8ejhkz

    But Pistons already have 3 guys that can play PG sooooo...

    None are of the pass first variety.

    Not having a 1st round pick to trade would make this a deal breaker to me. Trading Jose's expiring for other expiring contracts is a waste of time.

    That said there could be one other way to make it work - the deal includes Detroit taking Bargnani

    They already have a deadweight-3pt-chucking PF, don't they? .... who is also a former Raptor.

    Taking kleiza off our hands is a dumb thought. If we want him gone we can amnesty

    Bargnani or Amir would be the only 2 to qualify.

    I'm pretty sure we can amnesty Colangelo; it's just called different.

    I can definitely see the Pistons being interested, but don't see what they could offer that would get a deal done, and Maggette/Daye are worth crap all.

    If Pistons really want Jose they'll probably have to offer a pick(maybe 1st and 2nd rder?) and get another team involved. And it makes a lot of sense to some degree, especially if they're going to target him as a FA. They need a pass-first PG as Knight develops. It would help the bigs development, and maybe even let Knight play some off the ball, because he's actually got decent size and wingspan. I really can't see a player on their team I'd want (that'd realistically be available) though.

    LOL Daye and Maggette for Jose?

    First of all Daye is the complete definition of scrub. Why would the Raps trade for him?

    Second, Maggette is old and is not really that much better than what we have in the 3 position. So again, why would the Raps trade for him?

    I rather keep Jose.
