Pistons require ‘a great deal’ to trade Jason Maxiell or Will Bynum

Vincent Goodwill of The Detroit News:

The availability of Jason Maxiell and Will Bynum has been called on by some teams, but the Pistons aren’t in any rush to move them just for the sake of making a trade at the deadline. If it’s a great deal, though, they’ll definitely take it, but it has to be that.

I’d take another expiring contract and a second-round pick for either Jason Maxiell or Will Bynum, but alright.

    This post could be retitled:
    Joe Dumars is a bad GM

        It’s great and all that Dumars tried to make that happen. Especially if Kupchak really did agree. But we can only assess Joe on what he actually accomplished. Close to pulling off a deal is meaningless.

    Give up Bynum for a 2nd? C’mon Dan… I’m sick of everyone hating on Will.  He is a good bench player with energy that can carry the team for stretches.  We need to keep him?

    And don’t even say he isn’t consistent… NO SHIT! If he was putting up 20 a game he’d be an allstar. That is why he is a BENCH PLAYER and a damn good one at that.  If we want to compete as soon as next year, resigning Will is imperative, as we need a player like him coming off the bench.

    The Will haters are getting really fucking old to be honest.

      A second round pick for Bynum or Maxiell is really good value, especially considering both will probably leave in free agency for nothing.

      Man, trade deadline day has brought out some fantastically terrible comments.

        I tend to disagree with this assesment.  If we received a 2nd round pick we still need to exchange the same value in salary.  So, that means we would need to take back some garbage contract that is probably not expiring.

        It’s better to have flexibility with expirings than to get a 2nd round pick that might not even make the team or if he does needs to improve his basketball IQ and overall game in order to be a meaningful contributor.  We have two second round picks on the team now and they haven’t contributed much at all.  They might be good in the future and they might not but we know what Jason and Will are and they are good enough to be desirable to other teams so, it’s better to stay in the position we are in.

          I’m with you, Will Bynum is one of a few players who actually wants to be a Piston. I been a fan since Zeek and will always be but the only reason I watch now is to see if Will goes off. He is not the problem in Detroit, we’ve had such poor leadership (front office to coaching), who knows when we’ll get better.

        First off, I didn’t mention a word about Maxiell.

        And I would love to know where you get all this information about Will leaving for nothing at the end of this season.

        Will seems pretty happy in Detroit.  I don’t see why Dumars wouldn’t want to resign this guy.

        You’re a douche Patrick, and on top of that your analysis is garbage.  Why even write for a Pistons website when all you do is bitch and moan and back up your arguments with the usually “fuck you, you’re stupid”

        I couldn’t think of somebody worse to write for this site.

        As for the other comments, it’s true.  His talents could have been used elsewhere.  But for me as a fan personally, Will is one of the most exciting reasons to watch the Pistons these days.

        Will Bynum is one of the few players in the NBA who’s has loyalty. We want lose him unless we make him leave. I think most people on these post miss that fact. What quality player would come to Detriot right now?

      Will is good at what he does….but he’d be better and more appreciated on a play-off contending team

      Bynum is a nice player. Better than the vast majority of second rounders. But he is a free agent after this season. He provides no value to the Pistons for the rest of this season. And if Detroit wanted him, they could re-sign him in the offseason whether he was on the Pistons or any other team.

    All these comments act as though they know what the offers give the pistons.  Does everyone think we should take on contracts because they don’t like Maxiell and Bynum?  They are both expiring and coming off the books why would we be in a rush to move them?  Unless we are just exchanging expiring contracts or for some reason everyone thinks that even though they find Maxiell and Bynum to be washed up other teams are calling us offering starting level players for them.  Neither are worth a 1st round pick or anything like that so its no surprise and no reason to complain that we aren’t just trading them to trade them.

      i doubt anyone was calling about them. It is Joe Dumars’ job to try to sell them. Someone would probably have been willing to give up a second round pick for one or the other,
