The Detroit Pistons have consistently been mentioned in trade rumors as the February 9th trade deadline gets nearer.
Bojan Bogdanovic would be the big prize for most teams, as he is a legit scorer and one of the better volume 3-point shooters in the league.
Saddiq Bey has also been mentioned as a possibility, though that seems less likely given the return will be less than he is potentially worth, especially if the Pistons can sign him to a team-friendly deal just as he finds another level.
The Pistons also have players like Hamidou Diallo, but he’s unlikely to fetch much of a return given his limitations and the fact that he is on an expiring deal. If they have no interest in re-signing him, then a second-round pick is about as good as they can hope for in a trade.
One player who has been slipping under the radar is Alec Burks, who is having a career year from behind the arc and on a team-friendly deal that extends through next season.
He would be a quality addition to any contender as a solid bench scorer who can occasionally get hot and win you a game with his shooting. But he has value to the Detroit Pistons for all of those reasons, so there is no need to move him unless there is a quality package or a better fit coming back in return. It’s unlikely a team is going to give up a first-round pick for Burks, but Detroit might be able to get a young player who is good fit with their roster.
The Pistons desperately need defenders, and could be able to find one in a trade with the Philadelphia 76ers.
