Detroit Pistons trade with the Orlando Magic
The Detroit Pistons are reportedly seeking at least one first-round pick and a young player for Bojan Bogdanovic, but so far teams have been reluctant to meet their asking price, and this dates back to last season's trade deadline.
Zach Buckley of Bleacher Report recently proposed a trade that would satisfy the Pistons' demands, at least on paper:
In this trade, the Magic get some help for their anemic offense and the Pistons get an expiring contract, last year's 11th pick and a future first-rounder that comes via Denver.
For Orlando, this makes some sense, as they don't need Ingles and Howard has played most of his season in the G-League. Orlando is very good defensively (why they've progressed and Detroit hasn't) but are just 24th in the league in offensive efficiency, 28th in 3-point percentage and 30th in 3-pointers made per game.
Orlando is even younger than Detroit, so doesn't need the picks or project players, but what about the Pistons? Is this enough for them to finally part ways with Bojan Bogdanovic?
