After going 20-46 last season, the Detroit Pistons were left searching for answers this past offseason and tried to find ways to build their team of the future through free agency by signing Jerami Grant, Miles Plumlee and Josh Jackson. Not only have all three players been fantastic this year, but actually have the Pistons on-track to be a really solid NBA team in a couple of years.
The Pistons may not make the playoffs this year, but with Jerami Grant emerging as an All-Star talent and a lot of young talents starting to grow into their own, there is a lot to like about this team if you are a Pistons fan.
Not only have their key offseason additions been playing really well, but Delon Wright has also been having a great all-around season. The 28-year old guard is averaging 10.4 points, 4.7 rebounds, 4.9 assists, 1.4 steals and is shooting 45.2% from the floor, 36.4% from three-point range.
With Wright having one year left on his contract after this season and playing at a high-level, he has drawn a lot of interest from numerous championship contenders.
Given that the Pistons have the worst record in the Eastern Conference and are still looking to acquire draft picks and youthful talent, they could look to leverage Delon Wright before the trade deadline, something that has been mentioned as a possibility in recent NBA trade rumors.
If Wright does become available, the Philadelphia 76ers should be a team that shows a lot of interest in the combo-guard because of the difference he can make for them in any rotation. The only question is if Philly is willing to part ways with a key veteran role player to acquire Delon Wright.
Let’s take a look at a potential trade between the Philadelphia 76ers and the Detroit Pistons centered around Delon Wright going to the City of Brotherly Love.
