Report: Teams Interested in Stanley Johnson, Dwight Buycks
As the NBA Trade Deadline approaches next month, the Pistons have reportedly been aggressive in the trade market.
While Detroit has been reluctant to move rookie Luke Kennard, two names that intrigue opposing teams are third-year forward Stanley Johnson and two-way point guard, Dwight Buycks. According to Ian Begley of ESPN.com, teams believe Johnson is available for the “right price” and Buycks will be sought after by teams with little cap space available.
Johnson began the season as Detroit’s starting small forward, but a number of factors including poor play, injuries, and the emergence of Reggie Bullock, have pushed Johnson to the bench.
Buycks signed a two-way deal with the Pistons in the offseason but has taken over the backup point guard duties since Reggie Jackson went down with a grade 3 ankle sprain. He has shown a knack for scoring while being a ball hound on the defensive end.
