3 Trades that would result in Detroit Pistons having two lottery picks

If you are a fan of the Detroit Pistons, you probably know that luck was not on their side when the NBA Draft Lottery took place as they received the No. 7 overall pick.

For the Pistons to become contenders any time soon, they have to nail their draft picks, as not many high-end free agents are lining up to come to the Motor City.

But one thing that could help the Pistons get to the promised land sooner than later would be if they had two lottery picks in the 2020 NBA Draft.

In a piece published in The Athletic, James Edwards III put together a trio of trade proposals that would result in the Pistons having two or even three first-round picks.

The first trade involves the Pistons sending Derrick Rose and Luke Kennard to the Boston Celtics for Enes Canter, Carsen Edwards, Javonte Green, the No. 14 overall pick, and the Celtics second first-round pick (via Milwaukee).

The second trade has the Pistons trading Kennard to the Orlando Magic for Khem Birch and a 2020 first-round pick.

The third trade proposal involved the Pistons shipping Kennard to the Sacramento Kings for Cory Joseph and the No. 12 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft.

Nation, which of these trades would you prefer?
