One of the biggest questions hanging over the Detroit Pistons over the last season plus is whether they are going to trade Bojan Bogdanovic.
On paper, it would make sense, as the 34-year-old is not on the same timeline as the rest of the roster and is on a value deal that would be easy to move. He’s one of the best shooters in the league and it seems like half the NBA has been attached to Bogdanovic in rumors.
But so far no team has been willing to meet their asking price of a first-round pick, and to their credit, the Detroit Pistons have not caved, as Bogdanovic has more value to them than some matching salaries and a couple of second-round picks.
Detroit Pistons: A late trade of Bojan Bogdanovic could still be coming
But you can’t rule out a trade in September (similar to the one the Pistons made for Bogdanovic last offseason), as the roster is still unbalanced and Detroit still has a full-time spot on it open, which means they can take back one more player than they send out.
That’s exactly what happens in a recent trade proposal that satisfies Detroit’s reported trade demands for Bojan Bogdanovic.
But is it enough value from Detroit to move on from their scoring leader from last season?
