Ahead of tonight’s NBA Draft, the Pistons have traded Jerami Grant to the Trail Blazers in a three-team swap that also involves the Bucks. Detroit will receive Milwaukee’s first-round draft pick in 2025, unless it falls in the top four. The Pistons swap second-round picks with the Trail Blazers in tonight’s draft, and also get second-round picks from Portland in 2025 and 2026.
That leaves Detroit with the fifth and 36th picks in tonight’s draft.
The swap also clears a significant amount of salary cap space heading into next season.
Javier Báez’ two-run homer in the first inning gave Detroit an early lead, but the Tigers wound up losing to the Red Sox 6-2 last night. Tarik Skubal gave up four runs in the third inning, and left as Boston scored two more in the fifth.
The Tigers have today off, and open a series at Arizona tomorrow. Coverage will begin at 9:20 on 99.3 The Lift.
The Brewers fell 5-4 to the Cardinals last night. Eric Lauer gave up all five runs through six frames. Rowdy Tellez and Andrew McCutcheon homered.
The Brewers host the Cardinals again this afternoon. Jason Alexander will start against Dakota Hudson.
