Detroit sports bloggers and podcasters Greg Eno and Big Al Beaton are The Knee Jerks!
Thanks to Detroit Pistons GM Troy Weaver's penchant for fleecing other NBA teams, this weeks show is all hoops. To discuss the Pistons' out of the box off season maneuvering, we welcome back our own NBA insider/stats guru, Siddy Hall.
Before the draft, the Pistons traded Jerami Grant to the Trial
Blazers for a 2025 1st round pick and a $20 salary cap
The draft night, 3-team, extremely convoluted trade which led to the Pistons selecting Jaden Ivey 5th overall, Jalen Duren 13th, while taking on a $9 million salary dump in Kemba Walker.
On the eve of free agency Weaver took advantage of a Knicks team in desperate need of salary cap space to sign Jalen Brunson by dealing for Nerlens Noel, Alec Burks, a pair of future 2nd round picks and $6 million to go toward buying out Walker and had to send NOTHING to New York in return.
Where will all the new roster pieces fit for the coming season?
What could the Pistons roster look like 3-5 years from now?
July 26th, Red Wings radio broadcaster Ken Kal returns to show to talk about the teams off season moves and hopefully a soon to be named head coach.
