The home run option: Leonard Miller
If the Pistons could get a high-upside project at a position of need, then it would be worth consideration, especially if that player were Leonard Miller.
Miller is a big forward who can score from all over and has spent most of his season in the G-League, where he is putting up 22 points and 10.4 rebounds per game while shooting just under 40 percent from 3-point range.
He'd be a great fit as a power forward on the Pistons, but is likely too much to give up for Morris, who would just be a rental for the Timberwolves, albeit a useful one.
What if the Pistons kicked in a second-round pick so that Minnesota could replace Miller? Would that be enough to get the ball rolling?
I'm not sure, as Miller has already shown the high-upside ability that you are looking for in a second-rounder and already has a season in the G-League under his belt.
Unless the Pistons are willing to take second-rounders for Morris, it's hard to find a mutually beneficial trade with the Timberwolves unless Detroit can squeeze Leonard Miller out of them, which is doubtful.
