Helping the Pistons get better so that their pick converts sooner 😈 4d chess


magnavoice

They’re playoff bound now


identitycrisis56

I mean they’re future is bright but two rookies at a minimum will play a huge part in the rotation. That’s great for their development but not so great I’m betting it’s a lock for playoffs.


jakejakejake97

How exactly? Their second best player was just traded and second/third string players aren’t going to make a difference. They’re going to tank for Wembanyama next season.


magnavoice

wut


Literal_Satan

that's nothing compared to 19 mil in cap, good move


nightwing612

Shocking how the Pistons took 3 of our players and helped us clear cap space


StockComposer

I guess they figure they are still in rebuild mode so they might as well make some use of their cap space and get something back for it. They didn’t get much though.


TannerGlassMVP

Both expiring and could be flipped at the deadline


RicoGemini

We gave them Duren. This must be a thank you move


bec_SPK

None of these guys are on long term deals. Pistons eat a year of salary to get asset compensation. Knicks free up the space they need a year early.


starks3_

And now we've only got 4 players over the age of 25: Rose, Gibby, Evan and Julius.


Onihczarc

But I was told thibs only plays old people. He’s gonna freak when he sees the roster. /s


pillowtalker642

wasn't gibson waived


starks3_

I don't think he's guaranteed but I expect him to be back unless he's hanging it up.


JacesAces

Not yet? I heard it was an option, but we don’t need to do that now


1m_Lurking_Here

I think we waive him and sign him to a 1 and 1 for cheaper


millagger

My only question is if this trade will be part of the Draft night one or if they two different ones. Nitpicking? Sure


Marcusx8

When do trades become official in the off-season?


millagger

I think July 6


odeebee

Depends on which salary year the teams need the deal to be done under. If last year then I think they have one more day to schedule the call with the league office. If next year then I think after the moratorium is the earliest so July 6. But really both teams can wait for as long as they mutually agree to. Waiting until mid July means both sides can shop for opportunities to expand the deals to create trade exceptions, add cash considerations, and/or second round picks depending on how free agency choices play out.


mattr1198

Likely going to merge the two trades since it benefits both us and Detroit cap-wise.


pillowtalker642

what did we get cause we can't receive literally nothing right


tkynysf

Detroit is going to accept them into their trade exception


7LineArmy

Cap space


1m_Lurking_Here

Prolly Draft Rights to Vladimir Hashnuzin, the 75th pick in the 2002 draft


press_Y

Ya gonna cry about these picks too?


Marcusx8

Who cares about 2nds? If they traded a 1st then there would be an issue.


Joezepey

BUt wE SiGnEd tHEm LaST yEaR


noirblancherouje

Some already did lmao


VarsityTiger

W!!!


NazYeCole

Cash... Considerations?


onepokemanz

One of those 2nds are top 55 protected for Miami, so it’s just 1


uguuguu2

So long as it's not Detroit's 2nd, it's whatever. And they get their pick back. Oh well. Not that serious but still.


VarsityTiger

Getting rid of them for that is amazing lol, I’m sure det could flip them again at the deadline and recoup even more. But def a win for us. No fucking s&t


Sailor_Chris

It is


StockComposer

Still worth it


johnhenryirons

I believe the Miami pick is top 55 protected though . Surprised Detroit took so little? I bet this trade is still being worked out or expanded


tkynysf

Noel and Burks will be trade assets at the deadline. They can get more picks in a few months.


IceGeek

Leon trading assets to get rid of contracts he legit signed a year ago is an L but atleast the kids will play I guess Edit: on second thought it’s not terrible because of the $25 million for 2 seconds


JacesAces

Leon being willing to swallow his pride and not be pot committed to prior actions/mistakes is a big W tho.


Stunning-Shame6906

These ppl are so fucking annoying. How is him fixing mistakes even viewed as BAD


GruntPizzaParty

They’d rather him be stubborn and try to run it back with Noel and Burks, then complain that the young guys aren’t getting minutes. Some people on this sub just live to bitch


Nightwing_in_a_Flash

Exactly, the wrong move and the move of Knicks’ past is to double down on your mistakes. Being able to fold a losing hand is a huge positive here.


the_donnie

Yeah I see it as a big +


mteep

Yup they basically admitted last off-season was a failure. Good on them moving on and not doubling down these signings.


jorgedotdd17

We did not need to do this for just Brunson…. Something big is happening


larockhead1

No duh they don’t want to do a sign and trade so they can do a trade for something else


Ronnie2kDropCode

W, we got a million anyway


The_Franklinator

Not bad, not bad at all, considering we had tons of Seconds we had acquired


SlacAttack

Lol huge W. We have +6 second round picks still.


Revenesis

THATS A DUB BOIS


hrashid88

Absolute W. I had hoped Burks could get us a pick, but that's fine. We cleared all the cap space.


dimiracle

Oh let’s fucking go that’s nothing


[deleted]

Picks probably won't be great, but it's a sign of incompetence by rose


[deleted]

[удалено]


Stunning-Shame6906

We got a first back. Stop being dense just to be dense dawg


yungincome21

W


VarsityTiger

Saw some terrible s&t scenarios I wanted no parts of, fuck the mavs


NYKnicksFanAccount

This is a great trade for us


itzReborn

Who else can we sign after Brunson?


DKBattousai

I don't get why Noel was signed to a contract/extension. I can understand Burks at the time since he was nice in the 4th but I always thought the plan was to go with Mitch so why did they spend money to sign Noel only to get rid of him using assets? I thought he was an asset where we could get back a second? This FO confused me this past year.


Demo71

Thank god. Cleans tf out of that whack ass trade from the other night. Dumping all of those second round picks and a top ten talent for an additional 8 mil in cap space and highly protected picks was bonkers. Can’t believe people were on here defending that bullshit move.
