Detroit Pistons reportedly make decision on Luka Garza, two others

The Detroit Pistons are moving on from Luka Garza.

The 2022 NBA Draft is in the books and the Pistons tore it up by landing Jaden Ivey with the No. 5 overall pick and then trading up for Jalen Duren, who was selected with the No. 13 pick.

With the draft behind us, Pistons GM Troy Weaver has now shifted his focus to how he can best form his roster for the upcoming 2022-23 season.

According to a report from James Edwards III of The Athletic, the Pistons are parting ways with a trio of players.

Detroit Pistons to reportedly part ways with trio of players

James Edwards III of The Athletic reported just moments ago that sources of his have indicated that the Detroit Pistons have decided not to pick up the team options for Frank Jackson, Luka Garza, and Carsen Edwards.

In addition, Edwards III said that Jamorko Pickett no longer holds one of the Pistons’ two-way spots as Braxton Key and Buddy Boeheim now hold those spots.

Garza was originally selected by the Pistons with the No. 52 overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft.

In 32 games with the Pistons in 2021-22, Luka Garza averaged 5.8 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 0.6 assists in 12.2 minutes of action per game.

  1. Yes because he is a 3 point threat!!! I envision Garza as a player that will grow with any environment team wise🤷🏿‍♂️

  2. Was surprised they drafted Garza. I did not understand it originally. I am sure he plays hard and is a great teammate. He has plenty of room to grow. What I find difficult to digest is that he is a major liability defensively. He reminds me of a shorter Bovan. He simply has no mobility. Opponents on first step leave him two steps behind trying to catch up. When you add his lack of elevation both quickly and with extension it makes it difficult for him to defend. In a far more athletic NBA, I believe it was the best move for a very athletic Piston team and I wish him all the best and hope somehow he can gain more athleticism. I am sure he also understands that.

  3. Well, they got about 20 guys on the roster now, hate to see them go, but they were not going to play. Maybe another team can use them? They were all good. More cuts are coming. The team has more good players than they have minutes for.
