Detroit News on Cato for Darko/Arroyo

Risk taker - 02/14/06 - The Detroit News

It would include a partially protected first round pick from the Magic... And requires the Magic completing a trade with NY/Denver to rid itself of Francis.

    Nice article about Joe Dumars. He's done a great job of building the Pistons over the years to the great team they are now.

    After reading the Sentinel article online today, Otis Smith pretty much said that every trade you read or hear about is just a rumor and won't happen. It's interesting though, to speculate how any trade scenario would affect the Magic and their salary situation.

    The Pistons team of 5 starters only includes one draft choice -- the rest via trades. So Dumars didn't build the team through the draft.

    Maybe there's still hope for the Magic, even with Twardzik as chief draft scout.

    One thing to think about when it comes to a GM denying truths to trade rumors is every single GM in the NBA does it. Hell, everyone in any kind of business does it. It’s kind of shady, but it’s the way the business world is, because in the end, it’s all about dollars. It's a business; you have to play that kind of thing down. Really, if you tell the truth, you lose any leverage you have. Regardless where Francis goes, Denver, NY, or even the Wolves; I'd bet money that he won't be here after next week unless something goes really wrong in trade talks.
