As the NBA trade-deadline approaches, PistonPowered is holding a trade contest. (Unfortunately, there is no prize other than the honor of winning, which is a pretty great prize.)
Here’s how it works: You’re the Pistons’ newly hired assistant general manager, and Joe Dumars comes to you seeking trade ideas before the deadline. After the first round and results, here’s your second scenario:
Dumars: Rodney Stuckey no longer seems to fit in Detroit, and he’s beginning show signs of unhappiness. His value is sinking by the day, and I want to trade him before having to consider buying him out this summer. What can I get for Stuckey before the trade deadline?
Those who advanced from round one have already been informed how to submit their trades. The best trade ideas, as judged by us, will advance to the final round and receive a new assignment. The quality of your explanation won’t affect whether you advance, but it might sway our thinking. We’ll continue until only one assistant GM remains.
If you didn’t advance from round one, you still have a chance to advance to the final round. Leave your trade idea in the comments, and if your idea is better than all the ideas from the round-one winners, you’ll also reach the finals.
Don’t forget, any trade that doesn’t work under the Collective Bargaining Agreement will automatically fail, so check ESPN’s NBA Trade Machine. If you propose a trade that you believe is allowed even though the Trade Machine disagrees, please specify in your email why you think otherwise.
Check back later for to the submitted trades, the provided explanations and which advanced.
