I accept this deal. It sucks to have to say goodbye to Jennings, but I feel he is not the point guard we need for this team. While we can appreciate his ability to score the basketball, we need someone to come in and distribute the ball and shoot more effectively. With Knight we get a young prospect that hopefully can do something good. With Mayo, we get a legit 2 guard. Also, don't assume we forgot Mayo expires. We have a plan for him that hopefully in the next day or so you'll see what we mean.
We get a legitimate second option to be our third scoring option (after Johnson and Monroe) to lead our team from PG. I was never a huge Knight fan, and Mayo is expiring after this season, and who knows if he'll fall off the map again after this season. I also get a great 3 point threat in Korver and a sneaky good backup PG in DJ Augustine to back up Jennings

I think the trade is acceptable but I don't like it for Pistons. Once Jennings becomes a FA, Pistons will have as much chances of signing him as any other team because they won't have his bird rights.
I like the deal for Bucks but i would rather keep Jennings. With that said, Knight has a long cheap contract and that is good. Also, Bucks have no use for Mayo but they should get good value back for him from a team trying to win now.
Ian, that trade with Pistons is only comparable to the other rejected trade Pistons made of Wallace, 2014 1st for Robin Lopez. ;D In fact, i think that trade was better.

George Gervin: Kareem has the standing too to speak up and no NBA player is going to push back against him— it was disappointing to see no active players criticize Jackson. When backup NFL players are doing it but not NBA guys at all, that says a lot to me about prioriti

Alex English: The only big name I remember speaking against that was Kareem, who's obviously very smart and has been an activist forever.

Tom Izzo: I think it's more likely some NBA players have weird or awful views, same as the rest of us, because they're stupid and have platforms to openly discuss it.
