Detroit Pistons reportedly tracking former No. 2 overall pick

As you have probably heard by now, the Detroit Pistons are going to be without F Kelly Olynyk for quite a while as he suffered a knee injury during the Pistons’ recent win over the Houston Rockets.

Well, according to reports, the Pistons are a “team to watch” in terms of potentially trading for former No. 2 overall pick, Marvin Bagley III.

From Marc Stein:

While in Detroit, I was advised to put the Pistons down as a team to watch as a trade suitor for the Kings’ disgruntled Marvin Bagley III.

No trade anywhere is considered likely, sources stressed, until after Dec. 15 arrives and the league’s pool of players eligible to be dealt grows considerably. That’s the date that trade restrictions on numerous players who signed new contracts in free agency in August gets lifted. 

The Pistons, though, have been tracking Bagley since last season, league sources said — long before the No. 2 overall pick in the 2018 fell completely out of favor in Sacramento.

Nation, would you like to see the Pistons trade for Bagley?
