2. Bojan Bogdanovic
Bogdanovic has been in trade rumors since arriving in Detroit. The Pistons hope to end their rebuild and jump back into contention this season, but it won’t be easy. They won just 17 games last season. Cade Cunningham is healthy and should be better than ever, but the Pistons must make a 23-win improvement just to make the Play-In Tournament.
If Detroit is struggling, Bogdanovic will be back on the trade block. He makes $20 million this season but has just $2 million guaranteed for the 2024-25 campaign. There is risk in trading for the 34-year-old, but he is a better shooter and scorer than Harrison Barnes.
Bojan Bogdanovic averaged 21.6 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 2.6 assists in 32.1 minutes per game last season while shooting 48.8 percent from the field and 41.1 percent on his threes. There have been zero signs of decline, and he is slightly better suited to playing the three.
This would be a risky move for the Sacramento Kings. They would be giving up additional assets to make a small upgrade. The Kings need to think bigger and attempt to fill the largest hole on their roster. If things break right, a near-perfect fit could be available before the trade deadline.
