NBA trade rumors: Pistons interested in Evan Fournier; in talks to trade Stanley Johnson

The Pistons have climbed back into playoff position after a rough start to December, but they may still undergo a few roster changes before this year’s trade deadline.

According to ESPN.com, Detroit has been among the most active teams trying to find a trade partner, with wing help its top priority.

The Pistons — winners in two of their their last three, climbing to seventh in the Eastern Conference standings — are interested in Magic shooting guard Evan Fournier, the report stated.

Stanley Johnson is a name the Pistons have floated as a potential trade piece, with other teams believing the former lottery pick is available.

Fournier, 25, is averaging 17.8 points per game this season. The report said it was unclear whether the Magic would be interested in Johnson in a potential swap.

Teams also have asked the Pistons about 2017 first-round pick Luke Kennard, but the report says Detroit appears unlikely to move him at this time.

The Pistons could use a bit more wing scoring in order to make a postseason run, and Fournier could flourish in Stan Van Gundy’s system.
