Detroit Pistons: Bojan Bogdanovic acquired by Detroit Pistons in trade with Utah Jazz

After dealing away previous franchise pillars Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell, the Utah Jazz are embarking on a full-fledged rebuild. According to conventional thinking, a fire sale would follow shortly after, with seniors such as Mike Conley, Jordan Clarkson and Bojan Bogdanovic among the first to depart. Another domino has fallen.

According to sources, Bojan Bogdanovic moved to the Detroit Pistons in exchange for Kelly Olynyk and Saben Lee.

Bojan Bogdanovic provides the Pistons with a seasoned sharpshooter capable of providing spacing for budding sensation Cade Cunningham. Bogdanovic averaged 18.1 points per game in 69 games with the Jazz last season. In three seasons with the Jazz, Bogdanovic established himself as one of the NBA’s greatest shooters, shooting 550 three-pointers, ranking 14th in the league.

After struggling with injuries in Detroit last season, veteran Kelly Olynyk may be a fruitful reclamation project for the Jazz. If Olynyk can rediscover his form from his brief 27-game stint with the Houston Rockets in the 2020-21 season, when he averaged 19 points and 8.4 rebounds per game, he might be another asset to trade to a club in need of playmaking and shooting from its big men. Saben Lee would have been buried on the Pistons bench behind Janning Ivey, Cunningham, Alec Burks and Killian Hayes regardless, but the Jazz saw something in the playmaking-inclined slasher to give him a chance.

Many NBA fans may be surprised by the Pistons’ acquisition of Bogdanovic, as many anticipated the 33-year-old veteran to join a competing club, such as the Los Angeles Lakers or the Phoenix Suns. The Pistons ended 23-59 last season, enough for third-worst in the NBA, but the signing of Bogdanovic should suggest that the Pistons front staff is more than confident in the growth of the current core led by Cunningham.
