In response to rameakap's comment:
Wow. Wake up people! The ignorance displayed in the 'Detroit is getting robbed' posts is astounding.
Detroit is being described as 'desperate to dump Josh Smith' for basically anything that saves them money. His contract is described as one of the worst in the game and NOBODY would trade for him. The only reason the Kings might want to is so they can get Rondo to sign an extension if he plays with his buddy.
Detroit gets rid of 42 million of Smith for 20 million of Wallace. A STEAL in their eyes.
They certainly would rather see if Derrick Williams, a former #2 pick who is still only 23, can fulfill some of his promise for 6.5 million over paying Jerebko the benchwarmer 4.5 million.
The rest of the moving pieces can simply stay put if the Pistons don't want to move them. Billups makes 2.5 million to Faverani's 2 million. I simply assumed they would prefer a much younger big man to a PG when they have Jennings, Will Bynum and now Dinwiddie and want to bring Stuckey back.
Isaiah Thomas doesn't have to be signed and traded there. Just thought it would be fun with the name thing and how his game meshes well with taller guards like Stuckey/Dinwiddie. He is young and talented and at the right price any team would want him. The Pistons will move on from Bynum this year and unless he turns it around Jennings the next.
The only thing they can gripe about would be the draft pick in 2017. They do have two picks in 2016 but fine, let them keep it, we'll take a 2nd rd pick instead.
Otherwise this is a GREAT trade for Detroit.
You are throwing pearls before swine.
