Wolves, Pacers, Pistons, Raptors, Spurs Continue To Express Interest In Ben Simmons

Oct 2, 2021 4:33 PM

Several teams are still talking trades with the Philadelphia 76ers for disgruntled All-Star Ben Simmons. League sources indicate that the Cleveland Cavaliers, Detroit Pistons, Indiana Pacers, Minnesota Timberwolves, San Antonio Spurs and Toronto Raptors are still inquiring about trading for Simmons.

Cleveland, Minnesota and San Antonio have been linked to Simmons since he went on the block a couple of months ago. Toronto was also rumored to be involved, but had no interest in moving All-Star forward Pascal Siakam as part of a package for Simmons. It's unknown what level of interest Detroit or Indiana have.

It was recently reported that Philadelphia has not issued Simmons a payment of $8.25 million that was due on October 1. The Sixers have reportedly placed that amount in escrow and will deduct any fines Simmons incurs from that account.

Pistons Convert Jamorko Pickett To Two-Way Contract

Sep 25, 2021 10:27 AM

The Detroit Pistons have converted Jamorko Pickett to a Two-Way contract. Pickett had originally signed a non-guaranteed training camp deal with Detroit.

The 6'8'' Pickett went undrafted out of Georgetown at the 2021 NBA Draft. He then played in Summer League for the Pistons before signing his original deal. He averaged 9.8 points on 54.5% shooting in Las Vegas.

Pickett was a four-year starter for the Hoyas. As a senior, he averaged 12.2 points and 7.2 rebounds per game.

The forward now fills the Two-Way spot that was opened when Detroit converted Luka Garza from his Two-Way deal to a standard contract. Pickett joins Chris Smith as the Pistons Two-Way players this season.
