Trading for Dejounte Murray: Avoid
Luckily this rumor looks dead, but the Pistons are one of several teams that have kicked the tires on a trade for guard Dejounte Murray.
Murray is a talented two-way guard, but the Pistons already have a logjam at guard that has kept Jaden Ivey and Marcus Sasser on the bench for various points this season.
The Pistons don't likely have the assets to acquire Murray anyway, and if they had to give up Ivey to get him, that should be a non-starter, as Ivey has that type of ceiling and is still on a rookie deal.
Murray wouldn't strengthen the Pistons' biggest weakness, which is that they are thin on the wing and at power forward, so this would be a lateral move that would cost real assets, not to mention future cap space, as Murray is locked into four more years after this one ranging from $25-31 million.
This would be putting a Band-Aid on a mortal wound, so the Pistons should just stick with the backcourt they have and make additions elsewhere.
