The Utah Jazz will trade Bojan Bogdanovic to the Detroit Pistons for Kelly Olynyk and Saben Lee, sources say

The Utah Jazz are closing in on a trade to send veteran forward Bojan Bogdanovic to the Detroit Pistons for Kelly Olynyk and Saben Lee, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Bogdanovic becomes the third high-profile player traded by the Jazz this offseason, who also parted ways with All-Stars Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell in separate blockbuster deals, signaling a rebuilding franchise.

Bogdanovic, who averaged 18.1 points per game last season, now joins a young Pistons team that includes Cade Cunningham, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 draft, and Jaden Ivey, who was selected fifth overall this year.

Bogdanovic, 33, is a career 39% 3-pointer and will improve the long-range shooting of the Pistons, who finished second-worst in the NBA last season at 32.6% from beyond the arc. He has averaged 15.0 points and 3.6 rebounds over seven seasons with the Jazz, Pacers, Wizards and Nets.

The 6-foot-31 Olynyk played primarily as a backup for the Pistons last season, averaging 9.1 points and 4.4 rebounds in 40 games. The former Gonzaga star could bolster Utah’s frontcourt as it looks to replace Gobert.

Lee, 23, has shown promise in his two seasons with the Pistons, but likely would have struggled to find playing time in a crowded backcourt that already includes Cunningham, Ivey, 2020 lottery pick Killian Hayes and veterans Alec Burks, Cory Joseph and Rodney McGruder.
