The Detroit Pistons have signaled to other teams that they prefer to use their cap space to take on unwanted contracts while picking up draft picks in the process, sources tell Zach Lowe of ESPN.

The Pistons are one of the four teams to have significant cap space this offseason along with the Atlanta Hawks, New York Knicks and Detroit Pistons.

The Pistons have been connected with Fred VanVleet, but their interest in the $20 million per-year range is unclear, especially given their documented interest in trade scenarios.

Troy Weaver was hired by the Pistons from the Oklahoma City Thunder as general manager in June.
