The Pistons are just at the beginning of a rebuild that has already seen them trade away Andre Drummond, and could see them trade away Blake Griffin at some point in the future too. There isn’t a spot on the floor where they don’t need additional help moving forward.

The two pieces they have that will likely be part of their future foundation are Luke Kennard and Sekou Doumbouya. Avdija likely won’t blossom into a star the way Luka Doncic did, but he should be able to contribute at a decent level in the NBA for a long time.
