The Detroit Pistons continue to shape the roster in Troy Weaver’s image, as made evident by the recent Hamidou Diallo acquisition. Now, how about Aaron Gordon? Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports recently reported that Detroit is one of the teams that are possibly interested in acquiring Gordon from the Orlando Magic. Does he make sense for the new-look Pistons?

Matt and I discuss our thoughts on what it’d cost to land Gordon, and if it’d make sense from a team building perspective.

We also discuss the following topics

  • Detroit’s three game losing streak following the All-Star break
  • Killian Hayes’ role once he returns to the lineup
  • Sekou Doumbouya’s minutes and inconsistent play
  • Our thoughts on Hamidou Diallo, and how he fits with Detroit
  • Svi Mykhailiuk’s career in Detroit, and future in the NBA
