According to multiple sources, the Detroit Pistons have signed Luigi Datome, the Italian League MVP to a 2-year/$3.75M contract.
OT: Pistons add Italian League MVP Luigi Datome
and now they're gonna trade him to Utah for Trey Burke?? I knew Joe D wasn't a complete moron.
KCP dominated lamb today, don't sell him short before he's even had a chance to play
the only way this will work out is if the NBA trades the Pistons to the Italian League.
Would need to include Pistons plus cash. More if Dumars is included.
Are pretty dope. I like how this roster is shaping out. However, im still pissed that Trey isnt a Piston...
Hmm, I thought Bowser would be more of a fit what with the whole "bad boy" history of the franchise.
I'ma Luigi, I'ma gonna win!
Lot's of line-ups between the 3-4-5 spots. Still not sure any of them are great, but it gives some front court versitility.
I like this a lot. Pistons are one of the poorest 3pt shooting teams in the NBA, this should definitely help.
I was hoping he was a point guard. But he looks pretty good. Will likely take some time to adjust to the NBA game, but at the very least, he can shoot. Joe D is making moves.... more to come (probably).
Not ridiculous money, not a really young guy so he's proven himself in Europe some already, and fits a need. He can either be a back up to Smith playing when Smith runs at the 4, or if they end up tradiing Monroe and Smith moves he might not be a great option for a starting 3, but he's probably better than everything else they have. And should open things up some.
I love the Moose, but I'm thinking a trade is going to happen. I'm not sure if his lack of defense especially help side defense will be worth the money he will be getting soon. The front court is starting to clog up and I think building a team around Andre is what they need to do. J Smoove will cut into moose's PT anyways. Hopefully they can pull a PG trade off, I'll keep holding out hope for Rondo
Lets hope he can put the ball in the rim. It'd be just our luck that we grab a "shooter" that can't buy a bucket. Being a Pistons fan is very difficult these days but I remain strong
as long as his name is "Datome", not "Datemi", he should get along well.
