    Loads of reasons..to play with LB again..to be on a very good team thats right at the top of the conference....a young team that has a chance at a ring in a few years.....it's a better choice than orlando...depends what he wants..and for his wife and kid.

    The pistons already have a good point guard that will probably be playing over 38 minutes a game next year. They also have a good backup he will take up the rest of the minutes. Playing for LB isnt worth getting no court time when he can go somewhere else and play 25-30 minutes.

    As i said it depends what speedy wants....i still have a feeling chucky might get traded even though joe said he won't be...

    Depends who gets howard...if magic get him then won't have no money left to sign him....and if we do the same we likely won't either....IMO i think he goes to the Knicks he will be given a starting spot there...

    That would be alot of pressure for him if he played in New York, but it would be a great place for him to get minutes.

    I don't think the pressure would get to him..afterall he has done playing in the NBA finals..by outplaying the best PG Ain the league in the final game 6...if i was magic i would go for daniels..as he is a better PG to have mainly because of his size..at 6'4 he can really give guards problems.Plus he was one of my favourite spurs [​IMG]

    <div class="quote_poster">Quote:</div><div class="quote_post">SPEEDY LIKES DETROIT: Free agent point guard Speedy Claxton, drafted by Pistons coach Larry Brown in Philadelphia in 2000, is interested in Detroit, as well as New York, Seattle and Utah. Claxton, a backup who was one of the heroes in San Antonio's championship run, wants to be a starter. That would appear to exclude the Pistons, because they are set with Chauncey Billups.

    yeah, i think we will sign daniels, we don't want another guy that is injury prone. speedy would be good, if he was healthy.
