NBA Trade Deadline: Pistons acquire Marvin Bagley III in a four-team deal

The 3pm EST NBA trade deadline continues to move on and we have our next deal.

The latest “Woj Bomb” and the Trade Deadline:

Bagley has been a bit of a disappointment with the Kings, as the former second overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, as the 22-year-old is averaging just 9.3 points and 7.2 points per game.

Bagley normally averages 14 points per game, so a fresh start in Detroit could be a welcome to his career.
