Pistons are winners of 4 of their last 5 without Stuckey, beating teams like the Heat and the Bucks. Will Bynum and Austin Daye were inserted into the rotation since Stuckey and Maggette are injured, and they have been the key reasons for some of the wins. Stuckey is a valuable trade asset playing like the way he is, so should Dumars try and trade him? Something like Rodney for Afflalo. Jonas doesn't have a role on the team anymore so try and throw him in maybe or try and deal him. The rotation would look like this:

PG: Knight/Bynum
SG: Afflalo/Singler/English
SF: Prince/Daye/ Maggette
PF: Monroe/Villanueva
C:  Drummond/ Maxiell

It'd be nice, but Orlando probably values Afflalo a little bit more than Stuckey and Jonas.

I don't know if Stuckey is the problem, but he certainly isn't the solution.

Every Piston not named Monroe or Drummond isn't going to fetch much on the trade market.

The reason we're seeing Daye, Villanueva and Bynum playing more is in hopes of boosting their trade value. Surprisingly, they're doing just that.

Plus, the schedule has been light for Detroit, and they teams they've been beating have generally been on rough skids. I don't take any stock in their current success.

If maximum flexibility is Joe's plan, he can buy out Stuckey's last year for a fraction of the cost.
