A Trade in the Making?
In his report, Fischer stated the following:

Can Oladipo help the Rockets win another game? According to league sources, Houston has held trade talks with Detroit about Alec Burks, and the experienced ball-handler has a $10.5 million salary that is virtually a direct match. Monty Williams, the Pistons’ new head coach, may start rookie swingman Ausar Thompson and bring sophomore standout Jaden Ivey off the bench. Marcus Sasser, the No. 25 pick in this year’s draft, has also impressed in preseason, and there are still minutes to go around for Joe Harris and Killian Hayes, as well as Monte Morris off the bench.
