Trade Deadline 2023: Detroit Pistons Mock Deadline

  • GM: David Roberts, @david_roberts19

    Salary Cap: $123,027,600

    Luxury Tax: $27,239,400

    GOAL: With Cade hurt, tank one final season, trade vets for fair value or keep them for next year

    Priority

    • Trade off veterans like Nerlens Noel, Alec Burks, and Cory Joseph

    • Consider trading Bojan Bogdanovic if you can get a lightly protected first

    o   Lakers?

    • Assess the market on Saddiq Bey, see if you can get a lightly protected first for him

    o   Mavericks?

    • Projected to have over $40 million in cap space this summer, so try to retain that and only eat into it if necessary

    Players to Dangle

    Bojan Bogdanovic (3/$58.6 w/ $41.5 gtd)

    o   He can be valuable piece next year so not desperate to move off him

    o   Salary: $19,550,000

    o   Can salary match up to $24,550,000 for him

    o   If you can get a potentially good FRP, you should move him

    Alec Burks (2/$20.5 w/ TO in 2023-24)

    o   Ditto for Burks, he has a TO for next year, and he can be a contributor next year as well, but if you get a first or a good second or two, you should probably move him

    o   Salary: $10,012,800

    o   Can salary match up to $15,012,800 for him

    Nerlens Noel (2/$18.9 w/ TO in 2023-24)

    o   Trade him for what you can get, plenty of teams need a backup center and you aren’t going to pick up his TO

    o   Salary: $9,240,000

    o   Can salary match up to $14,240,000 for him

    o   Any second-round pick that’ll actually convey will do

    Hamidou Diallo (1/$5.2)

    o   Plenty of teams need athleticism, gauge offers for Hami and see if you can get a decent SRP back for him

    o   Salary: $5,200,000

    o   Can salary match up to $9,200,000

    Cory Joseph (1/$5.2)

    o   Vet on tanking team and expiring contract, trade him for what you can get

    o   Salary: $5,155,500

    o   Can salary match up to $9,122,125

    Saddiq Bey (2/$7.5)

    o   There have been rumors that Detroit is listening on Bey but want a lightly protected FRP to move him… see if anybody will bite the bullet. Maybe Dallas?

    o   Salary: $2,959,000

    o   Can match up to $5,278,250 in a deal
