The Detroit Pistons traded for Marvin Bagley Jr. at the deadline and sources tell James L. Edwards III that they would like to re-sign him to a long-term contract this offseason in restricted free agency.

The Pistons would ideally like to sign Bagley to a three-year deal.

Bagley, however, could prefer a shorter term deal to get back on the market earlier if he finally fulfills the talent that saw him selected No. 2 in 2018.

The Pistons appeared to value Bagley more than any other team during the efforts of the Sacremanteo Kings to trade him.
