Pistons reject trade with Jazz of No. 8 pick for No. 12 and a future first-round pick


Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports:

"Utah and Detroit had discussed trading the 12th and 8th picks, with Pistons picking up a future No. 1, but talks dissolved, sources say."

Brian T. Smith of The Salt Lake City Tribune explains why the Jazz want to move up:

"Jazz also making late push to move up to No. 8 (Detroit) to possibly draft Jimmer Fredette. Utah’s definitely working the phones."

It sounds like the Pistons turned down the trade, according to Chad Ford of ESPN:

"Hey @tribjazz, sounds like Jazz didn’t make much progress with the Pistons."

The Jazz seems to want Jimmer before the Bobcats take him at No. 9. I think he’ll be there at No. 8, either way. So, it wouldn’t surprise me to see the Pistons revisit this trade when their pick comes up and they know who else is available.
