  1. Where do you see the three Pistons going? Allen Iverson, Rasheed Wallace, and Antonio McDyess. I can’t see Allen Iverson coming back to the Pistons. Also, where do you think Grant Hill will go?

  2. Hey Travis,

    It’s too early to say.

    How this season finishes will be a big factor in deciding what happens to each player — what teams they’re interested in, what teams are interested in them, and how much money they could charge for their services.

    Over the next week or so, I’ll be writing some posts on the teams below the cap and which players they may look to spend their money on. Those posts should deal with some of the high price players. I think it’ll be interesting because I don’t think the market is going to be favourable to some of these high profiles players who are used to earning big bucks, we could see a few guys fall down to the MLE — Sheed is a possible example of that.

    I must add Dice to this list. I wrote this post back when he was with the Nuggets on his previous contract.

  3. I haven’t thought about any of the Pistons but Grant Hill has explicitly said he won’t leave Phoenix. If he gets moved or released, he’ll retire.

  4. Hey K-Man,

    Grant Hill was referring only to this season when he made those comments. He was disgusted at the trade rumours he was involved in and wanted to put a stop to them, and did so very well.

    Maybe he’ll hold the same views this summer, but maybe not.

    I don’t think it’s a guarantee, especially if Phoenix isn’t seen as a Contender and someone like say a Boston Celtics is offering him a one year ride on their gravy train. We’ll have to wait and see.

  5. Fair enough. We’ll see what happens since the Suns are spiraling downward pretty quickly…
