no, sorry, not interested. maybe someone in Barcelona will get a hard on for him?

while my patience for Stuckey has gone from strained to infuriated, I still think there's a possibility he can be the player Joe D envisioned when he drafted him. His team has been in turmoil since the Billups trade, and his supporting cast has been a menagerie of injured starters and guys who can't score. Give him a healthy squad, with guys who can shoot and space the floor and maybe we'll see his assists jump up around 8+ on average, which would be more than acceptable for a player like him.

I guess I'm not completely soured on Stuckey. He just needs to create more shots for his teammates and get that 3-pointer down. Maybe he'll watch some tape of Tyreke Evans' rookie season?  Cheesy

RE: Calderon has been in decline for the last few years. If he's competing for starter minutes with Jarret Jack, there's a problem. the guy isn't a bad PG at all. but he's definitely NOT a 10 million+ per year point guard that's over 30. I'd stick with Stuckey at a 5th the cost.

I believe you are judging Calderon on one season rather than the entirety of his work. You mentioned that if he is competing with Jared Jack for playing time, than there's a problem. Calderon had a injury riddled season and when he was back playing he was not 100% at anytime last season. Jared Jack was playing by default. You also mentioned him as a over 30 point guard; he's 28. Not a youngster but certainly has plenty of very good years left. You also said he's been declining the last few years; again not correct. He had a bad year last year; that's it. The two previous years were two very good and very efficient years, highlighted by 8.3 & 8.9 assists on the year! You do not know what your talking about. Just look at the stats below. Calderon would be a huge improvement at point. If you are a Pistons fan, then you know how dreadfully painful it is to score at times and Calderon's passing ability would help Detroit to get easier buckets; which is desperately needed! Compare him to Stuckey as well; Calderon shoots far better; rather it be FG, 3pts, or FT's and nearly 9 assist a game is huge! The only issue maybe defense but stuckey's not a great defender either.
