Trade Deals: Pistons steal Bojan Bogdanovic, succeeding in winning a deal; A disappointing move for jazz

Fire sale continues: Utah Jazz Will trade forward Bojan Bogdanovich to Detroit Pistons For big man Kelly Olynyk and goalkeeper Sabine Lee, According to The Athletic. There are no draft picks traded in the trade.

If this is the Pistons’ last big move in the off-season, then they’ve reshaped the spin in a big way. It’s an acquisition of talent, first and foremost, but it also balances the roster. (However, Detroit still needs to make some cutbacks before the start of the season; in related news, Kemba Walker is still technically on the team.)

For jazz, this is much less exciting. Bogdanovic is the type of player that an opponent might see as a missing piece. His $19.3 million salary may have been an obstacle in trade talks, but surprisingly they’ve accepted a deal that includes no compensation project whatsoever. (Utah, on the other hand, has almost no shortage of draft picks, after trading Rudy Gobert, Donovan Mitchell and Royce O’Neill earlier this season.)

Let’s do the trade.

Pistons Trade Grade: A +

The 33-year-old Bogdanovic has bolstered the starting line-up for the rebuilding team trying to take a step forward. If I were Cady Cunningham, I would be happy. Bogdanovic doesn’t need the ball to be effective, but he does give the Pistons another source of attack when they need it. It will give Cunningham more room to work when they are on the field together and help the team keep working when Cunningham is on the bench.

The veteran could be some kind of archetype for Bai’s friend, and the two attackers would compliment each other. It’s unclear if Jaden Ivey will start right away, but the Cunningham-Ivey-Bey-Bogdanovic quartet will give Dwane Casey’s coaching staff an interesting look: dynamic in attack, interchangeable in defense.

Bogdanovic averaged 18.1 points in 30.1 minutes on 59.9 percent of real shooting last season. He was efficient from all over the field and hit 40.7 percent of the 3s wide open, on NBA.com. He’s not a closed defender, especially against faster ocean players, but he’s strong, smart, and in Utah, he’s often found himself defending superstars.

Losing Olinc means there is no longer a 5 extension on the menu, but it eases the deadlock in the frontal area. If Detroit doesn’t make any further moves, it will battle Galen Doreen, Nerlence Noel, Isaiah Stewart and Marvin Bagley III for minutes. Just swapping two players for one is a win too, given the crunch of the roster.

If the Pistons aren’t interested in picking another high lottery, that’s an obvious steal. All players involved on expired contracts; If Detroit gets off to a bad start and decides to back off, it can trade Bogdanovich before the trading deadline.

Jazz Commerce Degree: D +

In Utah, the 31-year-old Olynyk will meet the ex Celtics President Danny Inge. It will also provide some structure for a team that, as currently established, has a large number of scorers and a dearth of distributors. Oleinik isn’t of the same kind of threat as Bogdanovic, but he can get off the high post and make the big competitors out into the periphery. If he stays healthy and productive this season, the front office may be able to turn him around for a competitor.

It’s not clear if Lee, 23, was included in Utah’s plans or included in the trade as a salary filler. In his two seasons, he showed an ability to get into the paint, but only made 26.5 percent of his 3-point attempts at low volume. Jazz is full of bouncers, but that may change in the coming weeks.

So why on earth would Utah do this? as such Yossi Gozlan of HoopsHype . notedTrade cuts $5 million from the luxury tax bill, giving the front office more flexibility as it considers its next step, and creates a $6.75 million trade exception. Also, like The Salt Lake TribuneAndre Larsen Note that Jazz had a very different roster issue than Detroit: hardly any big players, many players who could play 3 and 4 points. If Olinyk isn’t the starter for opening night, I’d be surprised.

Utah could have taken the top spot late in the Bogdanovic deal, in The The Salt Lake Tribune, but doing so would have required the team to receive a salary. The jazz band chose some extra flexibility over the chance of getting something better on the deadline. it’s not Harmful But this is their first off season that doesn’t seem to be a good value.
