In his early years as the Pistons president of basketball operations, Joe Dumars made trades at a dizzying rate. After he was hired in 2000, he made seven deals in the first year alone. During the next three seasons, Dumars made blockbuster deals that landed guard Richard Hamilton and forward Rasheed Wallace. Those moves led to a 2004 championship and six consecutive appearances in the Eastern Conference Finals.

Given that track record, it’s hard to believe Dumars is still in charge. He didn’t make a move before the trade deadline Thursday, extending his streak of inactivity on that front to nearly three years. The last deal he made was in July 2009, when he traded guard Aaron Afflalo to Denver for a second-round draft pick. His last significant deadline deal came six seasons ago, when he traded disappointing center Darko Milicic to Orlando and acquired a draft pick that he eventually used on starting guard Rodney Stuckey.
