Woah, I didn't realize the Bulls had locked down the "at least a few mediocre rebounders" part of their rebuild! If they can manage to get 2 or 3 guys who can score 10 pts in 3 out of 5 games next season, they should be all set.

Officially in this thread.

Season was pretty much over when Oladipo went down. I wont be the guy who says Pacers take the series if he's there, but it goes at least 6 games. Hope he comes back healthy. Someone is going to like Tyreke Evans next year; too bad he just never fit. I hope they bring back Thad. Not sure if Bogey stays, someone is going to offer him something crazy.

He did have a little weight on him in the earlier MN days, but it didn't really matter since he was sneaky-strong and plenty enough athletic.

People also complained right here on this board that he took too many 3s and that hurt his offensive rebounding numbers. Time is a flat circle.

Since 2008 apparently Detroit has lost 14 playoff games in a row?
How do you have that kind of cross generational pants-making GBS threads? How is Detroit always Detroit regardless of the sport? So many questions and a lot more shame

Welcome Piston Fans. Your team played hard and snatched a playoff spot from teams that had penciled in being there, and the Pistons played hard in the games against the Bucks even though it didn't matter but was still cool to watch.

Some things Detroit could do to improve

Figure out a way to get Drummond back to handling the ball and passing from the elbow that Blake took away from him this year

Get a better back up center so that Drummond can play shorter minutes to deal with his constant fatigue

This is a good boom or bust all the way from 3-25 draft so they could find a good wing or surprising point guard

Re-sign Ish Smith if they can afford him

Shuffle through another set of cheap wings to see if anything comes of it

They might want to trade Jon Leueur since he'll be expiring and Casey doesn't like to play him.

Somehow not play Blake Griffin until the playoffs

Detroit was a proud and noble franchise that fell apart as its owner, the beloved bill davidson, got ill and had to turn over control to his family, and when they sold the team it was a disaster with some of the best scouts and training people in the league fired at once. The only hope is that the new GM and his lackeys can find some stars in the mid first round or make some genius trade

Yeah, re-signing Ish is a good priority. If they can find a way to get rid of Leuer, it'd be a miracle, but every other team with cap space this year is going to go for any number of worthwhile free agents available.

Get young guys that play with effort. That's the kind of team Casey can do something with.

I agree that Drummond needs to get back to that high post, elbow passing game. They were doing it against Milwaukee during the series a little bit, but their defense did a great job cutting off passing lanes and following everyone making cuts. In those instances, Drummond has to be able to shoot from the elbow.

Miscellany:

Michael kidd Gilchrist is a free agent this summer, and so is marcus morris, josh jackson is available for trade, I wouldn't mind detroit adding a hard nosed wing with whatever MLE dollars they have after paying Ish (which seems incredibly likely.)

I keep seeing "trade Reggie" stuff but until the day before the trade deadline when teams are in need of big expiring deals, I don't see him moving.

Kawhi Leonard proably won't sign with detroit.

Other team stuff:
I wonder if Harrison Barnes will make less next year than this year

Deandre Jordan is destined to be the very small third of the knicks big three of Kevin Durant, kyrie and himself.

There's probably a zero percent chance that bucks don't re-sign Middleton

Tomas Satoransky would be a good 6th/7th man for a lot of teams but Ithink washington wants to keep him.

The fact that this draft is so murky is very enticing to me. The middle of the pack teams seem as likely to find a guy as the teams not picking Zion and maybe Morant. (Just realized he has the same last name as the man from game of thrones)

Welcome Thunder fans. I wonder what a healthy Paul George would have meant for you.

Welcome Nets fan. Respectful season, the future is bright.

Magic fans, your team won the second most games in the last quarter of the season. I am sorry that Kawhi is immune from the brain problems that normally afflict the Raptors.
