The NBA trade deadline can't get here fast enough, as it will end weeks of speculation about what the Detroit Pistons will or won't do.
There hasn't been much buzz leading up to tomorrow's trade deadline and there is a strongchance we won't see anything happen.
The one rumor floating around came from Jake Fischer of Yahoo Sports, who named the Philadelphia 76ers as the latest suitor for Bojan Bogdanovic.
Chances are it is just more smoke, but there are a few possibilities, one trade that is more likely and one that would be a blockbuster.
The more likely trade between the Detroit Pistons and Philadelphia 76ers
It doesn't seem like Bogdanovic's value is sky-high, as the Pistons would have likely moved him already if someone made them an offer they couldn't refuse.
But if the Pistons were to trade Bogdanovic to Philly, it could look something like this:
Given that Bogdanovic still has a reasonable contract with an out clause, an expiring contract and a first-round pick seems reasonable. Springer is just added to make the money work. This is hardly inspiring for the Pistons, though getting another first-round pick to replace the one they owe the Knicks would be something.
Possible blockbuster trade with the 76ers
The Detroit Pistons have expressed interest in Tobias Harris, though there are big questions about why they would use assets to acquire him when he's going to be a free agent anyway.
If they were relatively certain they could re-sign him, it would change things, but then you have to ask if the Pistons should be paying a good/not great player $40 million a year on a contract that will start when he is 32 years old.
Here is one that could work, though it is EXTREMELY unlikely:
Again, I can't see this happening, as the Pistons would be giving up one of the only valuable veterans they have for the scenario described above with Tobias Harris. And this probably isn't enough for Philly to consider moving Harris, who is still a valuable player for them. They'd probably want Burks too, in which case the Pistons would have to add another contract like Kevin Knox to make the money work. Would Bogdanovic/Burks/Knox be too much? Seems like a lateral move at best for both teams.
The 76ers have also indicated that they don't want to send Harris in a Bogdanovic deal according to Fischer, so there is that.
Anything can happen between now and tomorrow's deadline, but as of right now it's shaping up to be a quiet one for the Detroit Pistons, whose best chance to make a big deal might be to wait until draft day.
