Detroit signed free agent forward Danny Manning on Wednesday, ESPN.com reported. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Manning was the first pick in the 1988 draft, and he now joins his seventh NBA team. "We are pleased to be able to sign a veteran player like Danny Manning at this point in the season," general manager Joe Dumars said. "Danny has averaged double figures and shot over 50 percent throughout his career and we feel he is a great addition to our team." Manning a two-time All-Star, will be in uniform on Wednesday. Guard Pepe Sanchez (knee) was placed on the injured list to clear a roster space.

Sorry, LRB can't be traded. He's a BYC player with a huge contract. So we wouldn't get equal value. On the other hand, murph's a vet in the last year of his contract, so his trade value is pretty high at the moment.

Yeah but if we trade murph, we will have to activate Uberdirk off the injured list!

I doubt Manning has enough of anything for people to legitimatly say &quot;we shouldn't have let that guy go&quot;

Another thing on Manning. No offense to ther guy, he's certainly a better player than I am, but what an underwhelming career. I mean, when you've been in the NBA 10 seasons and people still talk about your glory days at Kansas you know you've been less than overwhelming.

Poor Manning...he has knee ligament fragments in NBA cities from coast to coast.
