But had Weaver not been able to pull off the trade with the Knicks and Hornets, he reportedly had a contingency plan laid out and ready to go.

According to a report from Hoops Hype, the Pistons had also had talks with the Cleveland Cavaliers about moving up to No. 14 to select Duren.

From Hoops Hype:

As a contingency plan, the Detroit Pistons discussed offering a future first-round pick and an additional future second-round pick to the Cleveland Cavaliers for the 14th pick if Detroit couldn’t select Jalen Duren with the 13th overall pick in a separate trade with the Charlotte Hornets, league sources told HoopsHype.
