The Cleveland Cavaliers have acquired the No. 30 pick from the Detroit Pistons, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. The Dubs will in turn target Kevin Porter Jr.
Headed to Detroit will be four second-round picks and some cash*, Shams Charania of The Athletic writes. The news of the trade comes one day after the Pistons acquired that No. 30 pick. We wrote about Detroit adding Tony Snell and his $11.4 million contract.
All told, the Pistons managed to acquire a potential rotation piece wing and add a pile of second-round picks just by taking on the three years left on Snell’s deal.
According to Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press, the four second-rounders heading to Detroit will come in 2020, 2021, 2023 and 2024.
Cleveland.com’s Chris Fedor added additional clarity specifying that the 2021 and 2023 picks were originally Portland’s, while the 2020 pick is Utah’s and the 2024 pick is Miami’s. Hat tip Luke Adams of Hoops Rumors.
