Detroit Pistons Land Kristaps Porzingis In Major Trade Scenario

Kristaps Porzingis, Detroit Pistons, Washington Wizards, NBA Trade Rumors

Every NBA team does not enter every NBA season with the same intentions. Whether we like it or not, tanking is a real strategy. 

Moreover, you can hardly blame front offices for using it. The league’s lottery system rewards it. If you can increase your odds of landing a better lottery pick by losing games, and you’re a young team that’s clearly not in the running for a title, why wouldn’t you? 

Having said that: there’s something noble about “going for it”. When an ostensibly rebuilding team makes a trade for a quality veteran, you’ve got to respect the moxie – whether or not you think it’s the right move. 

The Detroit Pistons would seem to agree. They just traded for Bojan Bogdanovic. As an elite floor-spacer, he’ll be a perfect compliment for young star point guard Cade Cunningham.
