Do the financials work if we flip Al Harrington for McDyess?

I wouldn't mind that at all.

This is being reported about McDyess so hes either playing for Detroit or not playing at all i guess:

The Nuggets are expected to waive the 34-year-old McDyess, ESPN.com's Chad Ford reports. McDyess has no interest in playing for any team other than the Pistons, meaning he could choose to retire or negotiate a contract buyout with Denver.

Hmm... interesting. At first I thought the thread said Al traded. As in Al Harrington and not AI as in Allen Iverson.

Denver gets the true PG it's wanted for a while now. When 'Melo returns from suspension, this team will be better than it was. But the big men spot still is a huge hole as Nene is the only good one they have. Detroit gets the offensive weapon they needed for this declining team.

This trade sort of shocked me-Billips has been the heart and soul of the Pistons for so long. Where Rip can be up and down streaky, Chauncey has always been there knocking down clutch shots (and free throws) and playing that D in the playoffs. Is Dumars really thinking the salary money angle? Hmm, maybe you're right. After seeing Rasheed tank so much in the playoffs last year I figured he'd be the expendable one. I guess time will tell on this, I think Denver got the better deal but AI is capable of better numbers on offense and providing that spark. Yeah, him and Sheed on the same team--wonder how that'll work out...

Iversons 20mill contract comes off the books at the end of the year. Billups has 30mill+ owed to him over the next 3 years i believe. Definitely about money

Yeah, looks like you're right...interesting to see how it'll impact both teams. I didn't know Billips is a CU alum so it'll be a homecoming for him as well.

Call me crazy, but i had a dream last night on this. Not on the AI trade, but one the new look pistens that had AI, rip hamilton, lamar odom, al harrington, and Jason Maxiel in their starting five, with a bench consisting of stucky as their six man. Key departures include also Prince and Wallace.
