NBA trade deadline rumors: Live updates on Detroit Pistons, every team

Detroit Free Press

Looking for NBA trade deadline 2022 live updates and rumors? You’ve come to the right spot.

The deadline is Thursday at 3 p.m. eastern time, and with so many teams who believe they’re close to championship or playoff contention, the few sellers have an advantage. That’s where the 12-41 Detroit Pistons come in, under the direction of second-year general manager Troy Weaver, vice chairman Arn Tellem, head coach Dwane Casey and owner Tom Gores.

Rarely do major moves at the deadline lead to a championship, with the recent exceptions being Marc Gasol to Toronto (2019), Rasheed Wallace to Detroit (2004) and Clyde Drexler to Houston (1995).

MATCHMAKER: 4 Jerami Grant trades Pistons should pursue ahead of deadline

The biggest names known to be discussed in potential trades include Pistons forward Jerami Grant, who is tantalizing in a league starved for athletic wings who can both shoot and defend multiple matchups. But Grant, according to reports, wants to maintain a large offensive role, has a list of teams he’d prefer to go to and wants a new contract — his deal worth $20 million annually expires after next season.

We’ve seen a few big trades already, with the Clippers acquiring Norman Powell and Robert Covington from the Blazers last week, and the Cavaliers getting Caris LeVert from the Pacers on Sunday.

Other notable names who might be dealt include James Harden (Nets), Ben Simmons (76ers), Buddy Hield (Kings) and Dennis Schroder (Celtics).
