Alec Burks will be traded, Bojan Bogdanovic will not
No one knows what the Detroit Pistons are up to when it comes to their two most prized veterans, but they keep claiming they are not shopping either of them.
I believe it with Bogdanovic, who still has a year left on his deal and for some reason, Troy Weaver thinks he is the final piece of the puzzle even though there is no evidence of that in the win column.
Burks is on an expiring deal and will be a free agent at the end of the season. It's hard to believe a guy who would be a valuable contributor on a contender would want to spend the final productive years of his career on the worst team in the league, so the Pistons will end up moving him before the deadline to get something.
I expect that "something" to be in the range of two second-round picks and maybe a project player, though if they get creative, the Pistons could find something better.
