The Detroit Pistons are finalizing a trade for Utah Jazz forward Bojan Bogdanovic, per multiple reports.
The Jazz will reportedly receive stretch forward Kelly Olynyk and point guard Saben Lee in return.
The 33-year-old Bogdanovic averaged 18.4 points (on 45/40/88 shooting splits), 4.3 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 31.5 minutes per game over three seasons with the Jazz. He will provide scoring and veteran stewardship on a Pistons team that could field a talented starting lineup of players under the age of 25.
Bogdanovic has started since his breakout season with the Indiana Pacers in 2017-18 and played 94% of his team’s games since. He has been the mark of consistency as a floor-spacing forward, shooting no worse than 39% from 3-point range over the past five seasons. In six games with the Croatian national team at FIBA EuroBasket this summer, Bogdanovic averaged 19.2 points on 48/39/87 shooting splits.
