Pistons No Longer Considering Saddiq Bey Off Limits In Trade

Nov 23, 2022 5:00 PM

The future of Saddiq Bey with the Detroit Pistons is a bit less certain than it was previously. Bey will be eligible for an extension this offseason ahead of a potential restricted free agency in 2024.

The Pistons have taken early trade calls from inquiring teams on Bey, which is a change of behavior from previous trade windows.

The Pistons, however, seem intent on continuing to evaluate Bey's fit with the roster before truly entertaining a potential trade.

Lakers Still Interested In Trading For Bojan Bogdanovic

Nov 14, 2022 9:27 AM

On the latest episode of his "Don't Aggregate This" podcast, Jake Fisher of Yahoo Sports talked the Detroit Pistons. One of the items was the trade possibilities surrounding Bojan Bogdanovic, despite his recent extension with Detroit.

One of the teams mentioned as still having interest in Bogdanovic was the Los Angeles Lakers. LA had talked about a Bogdanovic trade during the offseason, before he was dealt from the Utah Jazz to the Pistons. Fischer also mentioned the Phoenix Suns as a potential suitor for Bogdanovic.

Shortly before the season began, Bogandovic signed a two-year, $39 million extension with the Pistons. The second season of that extension is only partially guaranteed for $2 million, effectively make this a one-year, $22 million extension. Because Bogdanovic got only a slight raise, and extended for only two years, he remains immediately trade-eligible.

Kevin Knox: I Didn't Make Best Of Opportunity With Knicks

Oct 22, 2022 9:12 AM

Kevin Knox didn't have any sort of revenge game on his mind when his Detroit Pistons faced the New York Knicks. Instead, Knox took ownership for him not playing well enough for the Knicks.

“I had my fair opportunity; didn’t make the best of it, unfortunately,” Knox said.

Knox said he learned a lot while playing in New York, including that he has to play harder. The fifth year forward also said he's taking advantage of being with the Pistons now.

“I got to go out there and work harder, play better defense, all the narrative that they created. But I put it all on me. I got to go out there and play better, perform better," said Knox. "I have another opportunity here. So, I’m going to go out there and show what I can do."
