Today, the Pistons traded Billups, McDyess, and Cheikh Samb to the Nuggets for Allen Iverson. However, McDyess was reportedly just included in the deal for financial reasons and his contract WILL be bought out and won't play for the Nuggets.
I think the Bobcats need to make a run at McDyess to take the PF spot that's much needed. He would provide defense and scoring in the post and has a nice mid-range jump shot that would extend the defense and open up driving opportunities that Larry Brown loves. What do you guys think?
Yeah but how much of a Nazr Mohammed is he? I dont know much about him.......
Any word if AI is playing here tonight for DET
i love mcdyess he is a old vet...but he does shoot way to many jumpers
From ESPN.com 'It remains to be seen how McDyess' status is resolved, as the 34-year-old reportedly has no interest in playing for any team other than the Pistons, meaning McDyess could choose to retire or negotiate a contract buyout with Denver. '
Not good news for us!
We definitely could use some more McDeezy in this Heezy.
If we get him, we have to let Sean May know it's McDYESS not McDONALDS
Hard to say if he would benefit us. Don't know much about him, but based on his stats he seems to more of an offensive threat than defensive. He shot between 46% - 52% and he also didn't take any 3s and had very few turnovers. However, he had less than 1 blk per game and 7 rebounds ppg in the same period.
Larry Brown coached him in Detroit. I trust that if we get him or don't get him it would be for a good reason.
If he's bought out, he'll try to sign w/ a contender or wait his 30 days and go back to DET.
