The Knicks are trading center Nerlens Noel and guard Alec Burks to the Pistons, sources tell ESPN. The Knicks will unload $19M more in salary, clearing the way for cap space to try and sign free agent guard Jalen Brunson.
New York will send Detroit back its 2023 second-round pick, a 2024 second-round pick via Miami and $6 million, sources tell ESPN.
Detroit is eager to utilize center Nerlens Noel and guards Alec Burks next season. GM Troy Weaver had Noel on his team in Oklahoma City, and Burks is an ideal veteran to mentor the Pistons talented young group of guards.
The Knicks are including two future second-round picks and cash in the deal to incentivize the Pistons, sources tell ESPN. https://t.co/sjuX7PIhkw

What a life the Pistons 2023 2nd rounder has lived:
Traded to Philly for Khyri Thomas in 2018
Traded to Clippers for Tobias Harris in 2019
Traded to Minnesota for Daniel Oturu in 2020
Traded to the Knicks in a 3-team deal with OKC the same night
Traded back to Detroit tonight
Adding the Pistons to my League Pass teams to watch for next season
After acquiring Nerlens Noel and Alec Burks, plus extending the qualifying offer on Marvin Bagley III, the Pistons are now operating over the cap.
Adding in the draft night addition of Jalen Duren, Detroit should officially be ruled out for a potential pursuit of Deandre Ayton.
"Assuming [Brunson] does decide to come here, this is an all-in move for Leon Rose and his group"
on what the Knicks' trade of Alec Burks and Nerlens Noel to the Pistons means: https://t.co/hMmliHV0Uv
O Detroit Pistons agora também adquire os veteranos que podem ajudar a equipe.
Detroit pode manipular esse CAP e mandar embora um dos dois ou deixar eles na equipe para ajudar na busca do Play-in.
Lembrando que o Kemba Walker NÃO fica em Detroit.
Again, a rebuilding team demonstrates the value of cap space. It’s not tied entirely to the ability to sign FA.
The Pistons extracted Jalen Duren and six second-round picks from Knicks solely by being able to absorb (expiring!!) contracts NY was desperate to dump.
Great point by Collin, the Pistons' max cap space potential drops to $21.3 million.
Looks like the Spurs are now the lone team that can offer Ayton a max offer sheet if they want to try to sign him. https://t.co/KbhfgfAIQX
I've long been under the impression that 2023-24 is the year the Pistons want to turn a corner. The trade with the Knicks stamps that.
You may not like it, but the Pistons have a plan. And it's been executed very well, so far...
My column (sub for $1)
Over the last few weeks my favorite thing about Pistons fans convincing themselves Miles Bridges was coming to Detroit is that they forgot who their Daddy was. We whooped their ass for 4 years straight, 15 times in a row and they had the audacity to think he’d wanna go there. https://t.co/8sbf7MR8Xa

New York also sends 2 future second-round picks and cash.
Lakers could very very easily make that Pistons/Knicks trade into a 3 teamer…..
Spending power update following the Burks/Noel trade:
Cap space: Spurs ($29-$34.4M)
Thunder ($23.4M, expires June 30)
