The still-rebuilding Detroit Pistons have maintained their high regard for their two key lineup veterans in Bojan Bogdanovic and Alec Burks.
Per HoopsHype’s Mike Scotto, it will take “overwhelming offers” for the Pistons to consider moving out both, with rival teams being met with consistent and high demands by the club.
Amid loaded interest by teams especially those who are contending, the Pistons have glued themselves on Bogdanovic, who has been viewed as a needed veteran around the Pistons’ promising core of Cade Cunningham, Killian Hayes, and Jaden Ivey.
The Croatian wingman is averaging a career-best 21.3 points while shooting a highly efficient 41.2 percent from three. He inked a two-year, $39.1 million contract extension with Detroit that shows his willingness to stick around, help the franchise, and secure the money bag.
Meanwhile, Burks, who was acquired by the team from the New York Knicks, is also a serviceable one that can help them in their hopes of making that transition from previous years of rebuilding. The 31-year-old swingman is registering 13.6 points and 3.0 boards and is very much viewed to talk for an extension with the Pistons should he remain in the past trade deadline.
