Detroit Pistons Rumors
According to sources who spoke with Liberty Ballers Wednesday, the Detroit Pistons and Orlando Magic have recently demonstrated interest in trading for Markelle Fultz.
The Markelle Fultz saga is one of the most complex and bizarre stories in all of sports, but that isn’t stopping the Detroit Pistons from inquiring. According to a league source, the Pistons have interest in Fultz, the No. 1 overall pick by the Philadelphia 76ers in the 2017 NBA draft.
Rod Beard: #Pistons are doing “due diligence” in looking at trade options for #Sixers Markelle Fultz, a league source confirms to The Detroit News. Nothing is imminent and Pistons are among many teams interested in Fultz.
The NBA says it got it right. The league has indicated to the Detroit Pistons that officials handled correctly the closing seconds of Wednesday night’s 108-107 loss to the Charlotte Hornets, according to a team source. On Jeremy Lamb’s winning jumper with .3 second left, Hornets teammate Malik Monk rushed on the floor while the shot was in the air, violating the NBA’s rules against having too many men on the floor.
The Pistons (13-13) brushed off questions of the officials possibly missing a crucial call as they lost their sixth straight. The players said they never considered the officials might wave off the basket. “We were just on to the next play, trying to figure out how much time was going to be left, what we could draw up to either tie it up or try to win the game,” Galloway said.
