Is this even allowed to think about?

I've been waiting for the day Joe Dumars would make some moves with all those chips he has in Detroit...  Damn he's a good GM

 

“I’ll make a significant trade,” Dumars, the Pistons' president of basketball operations, declared. “… "We have a core group of guys here that for the first time in six years I’m letting teams in the league know I’ll do a deal. … I’m open for business.”

 

Melo is untouchable right?  Thats what I thought.  I knew those rumors about him and Richard Jefferson were ridiculous:

 

Tayshaun Prince

Rasheed Wallace

 

for

 

Carmelo Anthony

Marcus Camby

 

 

Both Tayshaun and Melo have 3 years left on their contracts.  It seems like both duos of players would be going to better situations/roles on their teams.

I see Tayshaun stepping it up to 17-18 ppg in an increased offensive role, while giving the Nuggets the defensive stopper they greatly need at SF in the west.   Iverson and Prince would be sick together... but Sheed is the deal maker because he's the low post presence that could push the Nuggets over the top in the west.

Melo joins a team with the defensive intensity that could cover up his liability on that end of the floor (and hey, he might even step it up, too).  It's needless to go into the creativity Melo brings to the Pistons offensive game, but if they had him in this year's conference finals...

 

Big 3 of Iverson, Prince, and Sheed > Big 2 of A.I. and Melo

 

Big 3 of Chauncey, Rip, and Melo > Big 3 of Chauncey, Prince, and Sheed
