A Pistons source told the Free Press recently Bullock, along with backup point guard Ish Smith, is garnering trade interest. Bullock would be a great addition for any team jockeying for playoff position or looking for an additional piece to contend — a team like the Philadelphia 76ers, who have designs on reaching the NBA Finals with a nucleus of Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons and Jimmy Butler. It could be an easy call for the Pistons since they have cratered since a 13-7 start and are currently below the Eastern Conference cutline for a playoff spot.

Bullock, making $2.5 million this season, will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason so the Pistons must weigh re-signing him, trading him or risk losing him for nothing. The Pistons would like to re-sign Bullock and Smith (also a free agent) this offseason, according to the team source. It makes for a tricky situation. There are certain trade proposals that would be a no-brainer. If a team offers a first-round pick, it would be smart for the Pistons to move Bullock. Adding a solid first-rounder to their own pick would go toward the Pistons accumulation of assets. But a second-rounder? The decision becomes hazy.
