Detroit Pistons: Will Delon Wright be traded?

One of my “things to watch” against the Hornets was the status of Delon Wright’s injury and trade status.

My prediction was that if the Pistons planned on trading Wright, we would see him sooner rather than later, as they want to prove he is healthy to any contenders that might want to trade for him.

Well, Wright started the first game back from the break, played 22 minutes and had his normal game, scoring five points and adding four assists and three rebounds. Not exactly lights out, but Wright just needs to get back into the flow of the game and ramp up his minutes before the deadline.

I’ve said many times that the Pistons do not need to trade Delon Wright and there are some pros and cons to doing so, but if they can pry a first-round pick out of team like Philly, then the Delon Wright experience may be over in Detroit.

If not, then the Pistons can just keep him, as he is on a team-friendly contract, contributes and would be a great bench player on a  team that is trying to win, which the Detroit Pistons will be next season.

I’d say the odds of Wright being traded are 60/40 in favor of him leaving Detroit, but the Pistons are in a good spot, as they can turn down any deal they don’t like and simply bring Wright back, as he might be more valuable next season anyway.
