Via Chad Ford of ESPN he says that sources have told him that Minnesota Timberwolves offered the Pistons Al Jefferson for Tayshaun Prince. I hope to the basketball God that if this deal is just straight up, Joe D accepts it. Solves our low post issues. Al Jeff has a big contract but he is still a young guy. Minnesota is hell-bent on getting rid of Al Jefferson with Kevin Love in their lineup. They are also trying to re-sign some tall European white dude but i've never heard of him (Darko). Tay is still a good player especially if a role player and he has the beautiful expiring contract for summer of 'Melo (2011 however he may sign an extension).
Per Bill Simmons and Chad Ford's mock draft today they made "bold" predictions for the draft tomorrow. Simmons' bold prediction was that the Pistons would somehow get Cousins. I think that has a very good chance of happening as well. My buddy who works for Rotowire covering who covers the pistons suggests a swap of 1st rounders with the Kings and throw in Maxiell. I go from six to midnight just thinking about Cousins with potentially Al Jefferson down low.
Anyone else pumped for the draft? Any predictions on the draft as a whole and where Manny goes? How about the amount of times LeBron is mentioned somehow about his free agency? I am an avid NBA fan and this is by my second favorite draft of the entire year with number one being my Fantasy Keeper NBA league.
