The NBA trade deadline is fast approaching and the Detroit Pistons have been at the center of many of the trade rumors.

Just about every contender has been mentioned in trade rumors for Jerami Grant, and it makes sense, as the Pistons are rebuilding and the versatile forward would help almost any roster and could be the piece that pushes some team over the top.

One team that has consistently been mentioned is the Chicago Bulls, who have the trade package for Grant but have reportedly been reluctant to include young forward Patrick Williams.

Williams showed flashes of being a solid two-way prospect in his rookie season, hitting 39 percent from 3-point range and often defending the other team’s best player.

He’s also a guy the Pistons were reportedly very high on coming into the 2020 draft and if the Bulls hadn’t snatched him away with the 4th pick, he might have been taken by Detroit with the 7th instead of Killian Hayes.

He’s the right age and would give the Pistons another top-5 draft pick to build around, but what would they be willing to give up to get him?

A proposed Detroit Pistons trade to the Chicago Bulls

Chad Ford isn’t trying to make any friends in Detroit, as he recently thew some gasoline on the Cade Cunningham vs. Evan Mobley debate, and then proposed what looks like a lopsided trade for the Chicago Bulls.

Who says no? I do, Chad, I do.

This is basically a trade that has been floated for a while, but now Saddiq Bey has been thrown into the mix, a deal the Bulls would probably consider since he replaces the high-ceiling prospect and can slide into either forward position.

But this would be too much to give up in my opinion, as the Pistons would be getting only one high-ceiling player who is coming off a serious wrist injury and two expiring contracts, so there would have to be a first-round pick involved for Detroit to even consider this deal and they’d probably still say no.

Bey has been playing like a guy you build around, not trade away, but that doesn’t mean he’s untouchable in a trade to the Bulls. Just not this trade.
