The Utah Jazz will trade forward Bojan Bogdanovic to the Detroit Pistons for big man Kelly Olynyk and guard Saben Lee, according to The Athletic.
For the Pistons, the 33-year-old Bogdanovic solidifies the starting lineup for a rebuilding team that is trying to take a step forward. With him and Saddiq Bey at the forward spots, there should be plenty of space for guards Cade Cunningham and Jaden Ivey to operate. Losing Olynyk means that there is no longer a stretch 5 on the roster, but it eases the logjam at the center spot. If Detroit doesn’t make any more moves, then Jalen Duren, Nerlens Noel, Isaiah Stewart and Marvin Bagley III will battle fo minutes in the frontcourt.
The Detroit Pistons are finalizing a trade to acquire Utah Jazz forward Bojan Bogdanovic for Kelly Olynyk and Saben Lee, sources tell ESPN.
