2. The price is right to move Galloway

If the Pistons are truly considering a full-blown rebuild, and moving Kennard as a part of that, then there’s no reason to keep Galloway. He’s on an expiring deal that could be matched and there are teams that could improve their shooting.

Galloway is shooting a career-best 40.3% from 3-point range this season and has played in every game — the most durable player in Detroit this season. While he’s only 6-foot-1, the 28-year-old guard brings energy and a high level of effort on the defensive end.

4 Langston Galloway trades. light. trade season

Most playoff teams will be able to compensate on the defensive end, especially since Galloway works hard. ESPN’s Brian Windhorst mentioned Milwaukee looking at potentially adding 3-point shooting. They are 13th in the league at 36.0% and hold Indiana’s first, which would be a nice pickup for the Pistons.

Perhaps Galloway would interest the 76ers would offer up the Oklahoma City first-round pick or a pair of second-round picks to improve from 21st in the league. Denver, which is 17th, could flip Hosuton’s 2020 first it just received in the blockbuster trade. Oklahoma City could add Denver’s first-round pick as it tries to improve from 18th in 3-point shooting and potentially push for better seeding in the West and to improve its wings.

In the NBA, spacing the floor has become one of the best qualities, and Galloway is one of the best shooters available on the trade market. The Pistons should snag draft capital in return.
