NBA trade rumors: Bojan Bogdanovic likely staying with Detroit Pistons; Cam Reddish expects to be traded

With just a week until the Feb. 9 NBA close, and despite having the worst record in the NBA, the Detroit Pistons don’t look set to beat coveted forward Bojan Bogdanovic.

NBA insider Marc Stein reported Thursday that the Pistons “are prepared to turn down any offers for Bogdanovic,” even if they include an unprotected first-round pick.

Bogdanovic is Detroit’s top scorer with a career-high 21.4 points per game on 48.7% shots from the field and 41.6% from 3-point range on 5.9 attempts per game. He signed a two-year extension worth just over $39 million earlier this season to remain with the Pistons.

Detroit goes into action Thursday night 15-39, a half game ahead of the Rockets for the worst record in the NBA. Last year’s No. 1 Cade Cunningham lost the season with a shin injury after playing just 12 games.

The Pistons could see a turnaround next season with a high selection and the return of Cunningham, which could help explain why they want to stick with Bogdanovic. With the NBA salary cap estimated at $134 million, Detroit could go into the offseason with more than $37 million in space, according to Spotrac.

Cam Reddish expects a trade from the Knicks

The Knicks appear poised for postseason basketball this year. But one notable story in New York is the future of Cam Reddish, who has not played since December 3.

Reddish has played just 20 games all season due to injuries and Tom Thibodeaux’s absence from rotation.

Ian Begley of SNY in New York wrote Wednesday night that not only is the Knicks “generally expected” to move away from Reddish by deadline, but Reddish and his camp also expect to be traded.

In those 20 games that Reddish has played, he averaged 8.4 points while shooting 44.9% from the field and 30.4% from deep on 2.8 attempts.

He had trouble finding a home and consistent playing time in the NBA. The Hawks picked him with the 10th pick in the 2019 NBA draft but traded him after playing just 26 games in his sophomore season. Overall, he has only played 153 games in four seasons.
