Before the trade deadline, the Philadelphia 76ers and Detroit Pistons discussed potential trades. Philadelphia was keen on acquiring Bojan Bogdanovic and Alec Burks but refused to trade Tobias Harris.

There have been long-standing rumors about Detroit’s interest in Harris, possibly pursuing him as a free agent in the summer. Despite the Pistons’ interest, the Sixers considered Harris crucial, especially given Joel Embiid’s recent knee surgery.

Ultimately, Bogdanovic and Burks were traded to the New York Knicks, and the Pistons received Quentin Grimes, two second-round picks, and matching salaries from the Knicks in the deal.
