The 2025 first-round pick via Milwaukee is protected Nos. 1-4, sources said. Detroit sends Grant into a $21 million trade exception, and the Pistons now have $43 million in salary cap space for free agency.
Detroit will swap 2022 second-round picks — getting No. 36 for No. 46 — with Portland, too. Detroit gets a 2025 second-round pick back from Portland, and Portland sends the most favorable 2026 second-round pick between Portland and the New Orleans Pelicans to Detroit, sources said.
