The Detroit Pistons have gotten off to a 3-11 start, which is not completely surprising given their young roster and injury issues to start the season.

It’s likely to get far worse for the Pistons before it gets better, as they are now hitting the toughest part of their ridiculous schedule that has already included four back-to-backs in 14 games and now they will be without Cade Cunningham for several of them.

The Pistons haven’t just been bad, as they are getting into “worst team in franchise history” territory if they don’t turn things around soon.

The Los Angeles Lakers are also staring at a 3-11 record, which is more of a surprise, as this is a team with LeBron James and Anthony Davis, a team that is expected to win now and not one full of 20 year olds that is tanking for Victor Wembanyama.

But the Lakers did little to improve after they fell apart late last season and may have waited too long to do something in this one, as they are already in a big hole. The worst part (for them, for the rest of us it’s hilarious) is that the Lakers don’t even own their own pick this year, so tanking isn’t really an option.

This should lead to them making some kind of move this season, as they have no reason to tank just to hand over their pick to New Orleans, and I am certain that LeBron James does not want to throw away his 20th season in the NBA.

Insider Jake Fischer mentioned the Lakers as a possible trade destination for Bojan Bogdanovic, who has been a bright spot for the Pistons since they traded for him. He is shooting lights out, and given his age, his value may never be higher, so would Detroit consider moving him to LA?

There are some big problems with this potential transaction, and it’s difficult to come up with a trade that actually works for the Detroit Pistons.
