Pistons trade idea

Detroit: The Pistons would be acquiring a talented, young, versatile, big wing in Kyle Kuzma to add to their core in return for 3 players who were not expected to have big roles this year or thought to be in the teams long term plans. Kuzma could join Hamidou Diallo, Kelly Olynyk, Frank Jackson and Cory Joseph to give the Pistons a strong and experienced second unit.
