Pistons agree to deal with Nets, waiting for Nuggets and New Jersey?

Ken Berger of CBS Sports:

With the Hamilton component essentially agreed to, according to one of the executives involved

And the Pistons might get a first rounder for taking Johan Petro, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports:

Detroit wants to take Petro with Murphy, but only sweetened with a first-round pick, source says.

    Looks like it’s going down soon. I’ve loved Rip for many years, would hate to see him go….that being said I think this makes the current team better and younger, gives us more financial flexibility, and retain draft picks. All systems go!

    Let’s just wait until it is all done before we get too excited. If we can shank a 1st rounder by trading Rip for Murphy and Petro then Joe has gone back up a notch in my book. I can’t see that happening though.

    And lets not forget that this all pends on wether ‘Melo signs that extension…

    Various reports have said that if New Jersey can get Rip and Chauncey to the Nets then he will sign.

    Ok then, that just leaves Billups, hopefully he won’t ask to be bought out, or will Melo sign anyways?

    The funny part is that the Pistons could have had a Billups-Hamilton-Carmelo line up.

    They’re saying Denver is waffling, but won’t they have to (or even just want to) wait until their game is over to agree to a trade? It’s in the second quarter right now…

    how about throwing Stuckey into the mix (send him to Denver) so we can acquire Harris? :)

    Stuckey should not be traded. He should be put at the two guard next to T-Mac (who should be resigned). Ben Gordon should be traded. Stuckey is a far more dangerous two-guard than Gordon.

    Gordon is too short. Who wants a two-guard that is only 6″2″ (if that)

    “Who wants a two-guard that is only 6?2? (if that)”
    Well, I’d take Monta Ellis. But yeah, if a team wanted Gordon, I wouldn’t be opposed to a trade. If your boy Daye keeps balling like he did against Philly, maybe the Pistons would be more amenable to dealing BG at the deadline if they can find a taker.
