    Westbrook for Drummond makes us better, gets us out of a bad contract, and makes Detroit more profitable.

    Then we trade capela and house for the third member of our big 3.

    According to realgm trade checker Drummond for Capela/NENE works the question is would you throw in a pick?

    Lol, i'd ask a 1st rounder to the Pistons, Drummond is expiring and likely asking for a max, Capela makes half the money for doing the same things, and probably better.

    I like when we talk about a player and Nook just comes in and adds all of this additional color and backstory.

    LOL, I am here for *story time with Nook*

    i really don't get it. a sizable chunk of this board is always trying to trade away a rim-rolling, shot-blocking, capable of switching, never complains about his role, has perfect chemistry with our star, and only make $16M per year center for every shiny object out there. the only team that seems to have ever limited him was the team that's not around anymore.

    also, this is such a "badly run organization" trade idea. hey, you know what our 20 win team that's rebuilding needs? to quickly use up 30% of our foreseeable cap on an offensively limited center who, as a bonus, has never won anything, but is friends with our best player.

    edit: but i will give drummond props for getting his ft% from sub-40 to 60% and holding it there for 3 seasons now. legit turnaround.

    Hawks might do it as long as they keep their trade assets if its only for expiring deals. If he walks so what you saved some money.
