Pistons reportedly receiving trade calls on Stanley Johnson, Luke Kennard
The Detroit Pistons have been active in trade talks, and Stanley Johnson and Luke Kennard are two players who regularly come up, according to a report.
ESPN’s Ian Begley reported on Thursday that Johnson’s name comes up frequently in trade talks, leading many to believe he is available. Kennard, who was the team’s first-round pick in 2017, has also been a hot name, but Detroit isn’t looking to move him.
Kennard is averaging 6.4 points in just 17.3 minutes per game this season. Johnson, who was the No. 8 overall pick in 2015, is averaging 7.3 points and 3.7 rebounds in 27.5 minutes per game.
The Pistons (22-18) entered play on Thursday tied with the Milwaukee Bucks for the sixth spot in the Eastern Conference standings. The trade deadline is Feb. 8.
