76ers trade for Pistons forward Bojan Bogdanovic in this proposal

In this trade proposal, the Philadelphia 76ers acquire veteran forward Bojan Bogdanovic from the Detroit Pistons for veteran Marcus Morris Sr., guard Jaden Springer, the 76ers’ own unprotected first-round pick in 2028, and a 2024 second-rounder from New York.

Touting a 3-31 record so far, the Detroit Pistons easily have the worst record in the NBA and have only recently snapped an NBA-record 28 consecutive losses — a grim showing for a proud franchise that has now struggled for more than a decade.

Unfortunately for Detroit, unlike other teams in a rebuild, there really is no concrete direction for the franchise. The ownership is mum, the front office refuses to take accountability for their slew of puzzling moves, and the head coach itself is under the suspicion that he’s sabotaging the team to free himself from the shackles of a lengthy contract.

Still, the Pistons have the means to solidify their assets for the future by liquidating their veterans, including Bogdanovic who is expected to garner very strong interest before the deadline from teams currently in the playoff picture.

Should the 76ers pull the trigger on this trade? Let’s hop into the pros and cons of this deal for Philadelphia.
