Detroit again played with a depleted line-up last night. The new players obtained in Tuesday’s trades haven’t yet arrived.

In exchange, Detroit gets Quentin Grimes, Malachi Flynn, Evan Fournier, Ryan Arcidiacono and two second-round picks. Detroit also got Danuel House Jr. and a second-round pick in this year’s draft from the 76ers. That’s a salary cap deal, and House is expected to be released. To make room on the roster, Detroit waived Killian Hayes, who was their first-round draft pick in 2020.
