Despite the calendar just turning over to November, fans are in the perfect mood to overreact. Whether you’re a fan of the teams planning to win it all, or those hoping to develop young talent on the way to the top pick in the draft, you certainly have reactions. In that vein, fans are already planning who the most likely players on their team to be traded are. The Detroit Pistons are no different in that regard.
Avid fans of the Pistons will attempt to reassure those on the outside that the team is unlikely to make any major moves this year. However, given that Troy Weaver has already completely overhauled the roster in his year and change on the job, there is always a chance.
Detroit Pistons players most likely to get traded by the deadline
Given that, there are three Pistons who come to mind as the most likely players to be dealt before the deadline. As the Detroit Pistons embark on another season in the midst of a restoration, who are the three most likely players to be traded this year.
For this team, figuring out potential trades is a process of elimination. None of the players drafted by Weaver are close to being on the trading block at this point. This eliminates Killian Hayes, Saddiq Bey, Isaiah Stewart, Cade Cunningham, and any of the present G-League frequenters.
Jerami Grant has been labeled as one of the cultural building blocks for the team, so he is also likely off the table. Frank Jackson, Rodney McGruder, and Trey Lyles do not make enough financial or on-court impact at this point to draw real interest. Cory Joseph is the lone veteran ballhandler on the team. That leaves Detroit with only three potential trade pieces. We will go through them from least to most likely.
