02:21 PM ET 07.17 | Pistons general manager Joe Dumars denied that he has offered up point guard Brandon Knight in exchange for Rajon Rondo of the Boston Celtics or Brandon Jennings of the Milwaukee Bucks. "Bogus, bogus. No conversations," said Dumars about the Jennings theory before turning his attention to Boston. "I haven't had any conversations with (Celtics GM) Danny Ainge about Brandon (Knight)." It's a pretty strong denial from Dumars, but, not exactly believable.

First.Of course he's going to deny it. He already has a couple solid young guards in Knight and Stuckey, and he doesn't want to alienate them by letting them think he's going after another star.Dumars is not dumb. He knows that getting Rondo is a long-shot, so he doesn't want to publicize his efforts to do so.

Dumars IS dumb!!!

What do you call drafting Milicic no.2? Throwing money on Gordon and Charlie boy? Trading away Billups for Iverson? And now throwing almost $15M per to Smith?
Stupidity!!!

You may consider him to be "dumb" but the guy did build a championship team and a team the went to 6 consecutive ECF something no team has ever done. I can list a number of things he has done very well. Now the Milicic pick people kill him over but at that time most every so called expert had him as the No. 2 pick. The Billups trade would have made more sense if he did not spend the money on two bums. As far has Smith goes its 13.5 million and the market value was around 12 mill on him. Detroit will always have to overspend to get free agents with any skill set.
