by March 25, 2021

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Detroit Pistons are trading guard Delon Wright to the Sacramento Kings in exchange for guard Cory Joseph, a 2021 second-round pick (via the Los Angeles Lakers) and a 2024 second-round pick.

Wright and Joseph were teammates with the Toronto Raptors in the 2015-16 and 2016-17 season.

In his sixth NBA season at 28-years-old, Wright will now be traded to his fifth team since the 2018-19 season. The playmaker has averaged 10.4 points and 5.0 assists per game this season (both career-highs) while shooting .464 percent from the field but has shot just .348 percent from 3-point range.

Joseph, in his 10th NBA season at 29-years-old, has been a steady backup point guard for the majority of his career. He’s averaging modest numbers of 6.6 points, 2.5 assists and 0.9 steals per game while shooting .444 percent from the field and .330 percent from 3-point range.
