@matthewchewbacca/IG: Do you see any possibility where the Pistons try to move their pick or get another pick? Keith Langlois: Trading out of five is doubtful. Trading up is a chore. Trading down is unlikely, as well, though it’s conceivable Troy Weaver likes a wide enough range of prospects that he’d drop down a few spots if somebody makes a compelling enough offer to move up. I don’t see the Pistons trading out of the lottery altogether for an established player. That’s not something that would seem to fit the timeline of a team that just two years ago began rebuilding. As for getting another pick, the speculation will be on Jerami Grant and Portland, picking seventh, and I suspect it will remain a hot topic until draft night, at least.

Miles Bridges to command $25 million-plus in free agency?

Miles Bridges enters the offseason as one of the top free agents on the market. He’s currently sixth overall on our HoopsHype free-agent rankings. Four NBA executives told me he could earn $25 million annually or more in free agency. If there becomes a bidding war for Bridges, he could get a max contract. One executive told me, “Bridges will get close to, if not the max, at this point. He’s 23 years old and a big wing. Those guys are so rare. If Portland can’t trade for Jerami Grant, they’ll probably look in Bridges’ direction. These teams with cap space that are debating where to spend money would probably go for a young wing. They’re hard guys to get. I think he’s getting $25 million to the max annually.”

Jerami Grant at the top of the Blazers' wish list

The Blazers’ interest in trading at least one of those picks to acquire Detroit Pistons forward Jerami Grant has been one of the worst-kept secrets in NBA circles. “That was a big deal to them,” said a Western Conference official. “The expectation was certainly, ‘Once we get this pick, we’ll turn it into someone. We’ll overpay to get someone.’” Grant seemed to be at the top of their list. He and Lillard have a relationship dating back to their days with Team USA, and they share an interest in playing together once again, sources said.
