Default Iverson traded to Detroit

Source: Iverson traded to Detroit - NBA - Yahoo! Sports



I didn't expect a trade to happen this soon. What do you guys think?

I expected Billups to get traded...but next year... or when this season ended.

Square peg in a round hole. Only one ball in play still right ?

Assuming this gets carried out, it will be interesting to see how Iverson fits with the Pistons. This will give the Pistons the "star power" that the media loves and will probably increase the number of people that expect them to make it to the Eastern Conference and/or NBA finals.

I think its a great trade for both teams. The nuggets get a good distributor/leader in Billups plus you throw in a solid scorer in Mcdyse. The pistons added a great scorer who is hungry for a ring. I think both teams did well in this trade.

Looks like Iverson is turning into a Journeyman.

I love Iverson. I think this will be a good deal for Detroit. Detroit has lots of young players emerging, and this gives them the ammo to make a run for it this year. If they don't make it, then they will have the salary cap flexibility next year.

As a Cleveland Cavs fan, I love this trade. Big Shot Billups was a thorn in our side and Iverson has never proven to be a winner and I feel this will screw up their team concept. I think the Cavs now win the Central. Thanks Joe!

I kinda don't like it. I think Billups makes Denver a tougher competition for my Lakers.. Not to mention Mcdyess too.
