Rumors have been going around about the Pistons shopping Jodie Meeks. Shams Charania of The Vertical reports that the Pistons have finally pulled the trigger on a Meeks deal with the Orlando Magic. Here is the Vertical article with more details.

According to the article, the Pistons would be receiving a 2019 second round pick. This would free up $6.5 million dollars for the Pistons, putting them over $20 million available going into free agency on Friday.

$20 million is near-max money; could the Pistons use the extra room to bring in an Al Horford or another max-level player? Are you ok with a Meeks for 2019 second round swap? Does this trade remind you of last year's Marcus Morris trade, inverted? Let us know your thoughts and adjustments in the comments.
