The Detroit Pistons will likely move on from Bojan Bogdanovic ahead of the NBA trade deadline. He’s 33. They’re a bad team. It doesn’t take too much to put two and two together.

The best thing you can do in any economy is corner the market. If everyone is selling X, you ought to sell Y. If you’re the only one selling Y, chances are, sales are going to be good. The NBA is an economy like any other.

Players and draft picks are like currency, and different teams choose to buy and sell them depending on their situation. The Detroit Pistons acquire Bojan Bogdanovic for Kelly Olynyk and a second-round pick with the intention of featuring him offensively, boosting his trade value, then flipping him for a more valuable return.

There was an understanding between Bogdanovic and the Pistons that after that trade occurred, he would be featured in their offense and re-routed ahead of the NBA trade deadline. That was long before Cade Cunningham got hurt.

Right now, the New York Knicks are one of the major players in the draft capital market. In fact, they’ve got one of the most impressive collections in the NBA. The Knicks are positioned to compete in the Eastern Conference and could benefit from an upgrade on the wing.

Here’s a deal that has them selling off one of their picks to acquire Bojan Bogdanovic of the Detroit Pistons.
