Pistons Have Changed Course on RFA Deandre Ayton

Long-connected to restricted free agent center Deandre Ayton, the Detroit Pistons appear to have changed course, this according to The Athletic’s James L. Edwards III. Per Edwards, “For the last 48 hours, it appeared that landing Ayton would be Plan A for Detroit. Acquiring the additional $20 million in cap space created an opportunity for the Pistons to put the fear into any team with a blue-chip restricted free agent. In all actuality, though, the events on Thursday signal the Ayton route being Plan B. Plan A manifested in Brooklyn, when [Jaden] Ivey unexpectedly slid to the Pistons, and they found a way to get back into the lottery to add [Jalen] Duren.”

Film Don’t Lie: Jalen Duren adds the “jumpy jump” big man the Pistons desperately need

Oh, how quickly the Jerami Grant trade narrative changed. Wednesday night when it broke that Grant had been traded to the Blazers for a 2025 1st, a move up in the 2nd round, and a couple of future 2nds, I think it left the entire fanbase hoping that there was going to be an ensuing move that made it all come full circle. Fast forward 24 hours to the end of the NBA Draft Lottery on Thursday night and it all made sense as Troy Weaver worked his magic and flipped that 2025 1st rounder to acquire 18-year-old big man Jalen Duren!
