Thread: Campbell a Piston

  1. #1

    Campbell a Piston

    The Pistons definetly needed a nice veteren center because Cliff Robinson won't be around too much longer, and now Wallace will start in the PF slot(a much more comfortable position for him), so they can bring Darko around slowly.

    AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- Elden Campbell will become a Detroit Piston, the Detroit News reported on its Web site Friday night.

    Pistons spokesman Matt Dobek said the team would hold a news conference Saturday to announce the signing of a free agent, but he would not confirm or deny the player to be introduced was Campbell.

    Campbell has averaged 11 points, 6.2 rebounds and 1.7 blocks over his 13-year career, which included an appearance in the 1991 NBA finals as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers.

    The 7-foot, 280-pound center averaged 6.1 points and 3.2 rebounds playing for Seattle and New Orleans last season. He scored 14 points and grabbed seven rebounds per game in New Orleans during the 2001-02 season.

    Campbell would provide Detroit with more options in its frontcourt, which includes Ben Wallace, Mehmet Okur, Cliff Robinson, Zeljko Rebraca and Darko Milicic, the second pick overall in June's NBA draft.

    The Pistons are battling the Nets as best team in the East and I think these are the only 2 teams that will be doing anything in the East.

    Nice pickup for the Pistons as Robinson is really a power forward and not a center.

    A great addition by the Pistons. Adds some more rebounding and shot blocking to the team to help out Big Ben.

    Elden Campbell, once upon a time a Lakers, is not a center.

    He does not have the power or the strength to be a center.

    But, he is tall enough, I suppose, to play that position.

    Of course, I can dribble really good...but that doesn't make me a point guard.

    Campbell was just an average player when he came up as a Laker, and he's not much better now

    Right as rain Podstock, thats why Jamal Magloire took over his job as starting center with the Hornets.
    He is a decent rebounder though(because of his height), and the Pistons could use a little help on the boards.

    Great move. Zelly's expected to retire, Darko's only 18, and Cliff is as old as dirt. He brings much needed rebounding, and can also turn in double didgit scoring as well.

    boy, it must make the rest of the East conference shudder when a team makes the playoffs, then gets the chance to pick #3 or so, and pick up the talent of a Darko....

    with Darko and Ben, that's a great offensive and defensive power punch right there for years to come

    Get Zelly out of there. He's a 4-mil a year bench warmer.

    He's good when he's playing, but he's been hurt too much.
