The source said Kennard was never made available by Detroit, either, adding that he is the Pistons’ top asset, so the Pistons would need to be “blown away” by an offer for a player who would simply be added to Boston’s bench corps. According to the source, the Celtics were pursuing slightly lower-cost options, like Pistons big man Christian Wood, but nothing materialized.
Sam Amick and John Hollinger: Detroit, per sources, is open for business and willing to discuss anyone on the roster. What that means, specifically, remains to be seen. But the reported discussions between the Pistons and Phoenix about guard Luke Kennard, it would appear, are only the beginning. The aforementioned Drummond dynamic is trickier now, though, as the Pistons appear to find themselves with a weak market for the 26-year-old and a tough choice ahead.

Luke Kennard available in trade discussions

Luke Kennard: This is where things get spicy. Before knee tendinitis sidelined him, Kennard was averaging a career-high 15.8 points and 4.1 assists while shooting 39.9 percent from 3 on a decent number of attempts. He has been considered part of the Pistons’ future. Yet a source said Kennard, who is guaranteed $5.2 million next season, has been made available in trade discussions.

Luke Kennard out four more weeks?

The Detroit Pistons must make do without Luke Kennard for at least a few more weeks. “They said somewhere around All-Star break,” coach Dwane Casey said before Monday’s game against New Orleans. “He’s working his behind off and (has) tendinitis, or whatever, I don’t even know the medical term for it. “We’ve had so many injuries I get this guy’s injuries mixed up with that guy’s injuries. Just hope you have him healthy because he’s a big piece of what we’re trying to do also and this would be a valuable time for him, for us, if he’s able to go.”

“I’ve been on the bench when guys have hit corner 3s in front of our bench, and sometimes we don’t even say anything, but every time they always look back at the bench for some reason,” Detroit guard Luke Kennard said. “It’s the one in front of the bench where guys always look back. I’m not sure why. If you say something or don’t say something, they’re going to look back.” Sometimes, the “no one said anything” look back can be taken as disrespect. “If no one says anything and a player makes a 3 and looks back, it’s kind of like, ‘What are you looking at?’” Griffin said.
