Troy Weaver has done it again and traded the last remaining piece from the wagon list, which he took over less than 15 months ago.
That Detroit Pistons‘second-year general manager last Friday traded Rescue Doumbouya to NBA title favorite Brooklyn Nets in exchange for veteran center DeAndre Jordan, four second-round picks and $ 5.78 million, according to a source familiar with the situation, who wished to remain anonymous because the deal is not yet official. The stamps also send Jahlil Okafor.
The stamps will undergo a $ 20 million acquisition on Jordan’s contract over two years so they can save some money on the deal. Jordan, 33, dropped out of coach Steve Nash’s rotation late last season. The one-time All-Star averaged 7.5 points and 7.5 rebounds in 21.9 minutes per game.

The four second rounds Nets sends the stamps: Nets ‘in 2022, Washington or Memphis (more favorable) in 2024, Washington or Golden State (more favorable) in 2025 and Nets’ in 2027.
The notches refill a pull cabinet that was bare after Weaver gave four second rounds, along with Luke Kennard, during the NBA draft in 2020 to acquire Saddiq Bey with the 19th election. The Stamps have traded their own second-round pick through 2026 and owe a heavily protected first-round pick to Oklahoma City.
Before acting, Detroit had 16 guaranteed contracts and needed to clear a roster of training camps less than a month away. Following a purchase of Jordan, they have an opening with 14 players on the roster.
Doumbouya, 20, was the 15th overall choice from France in the 2019 draft of the former regime, which was led by senior adviser Ed Stefanski, who remains in the organization.
But after a rookie season where he showed some glimpses, Doumbouya had a tough time in Year 2, getting playing time behind the Pistons’ logjam on the forward, which included new additions in Jerami Grant, Bey and Josh Jackson.
Moving Doumbouya is not surprising, despite his draft pedigree and youth. He did not show enough and his place in the future of the team was dangerous, with the addition of another defensive forward in No. 1 selection Cade Cunningham.
Doumbouya played in 56 of a possible 72 games last season starting at 11 and averaging 15.5 minutes. He put up 5.1 points, 2.6 rebounds on 37.9% shooting and 22.6% on 3s (2.1 attempts per game).
As a rookie in 2019-20, he started 19 of his 38 appearances and played 19.8 minutes per game. Match with an average of 6.4 points and 3.1 rebounds, while shooting 39% and 28.6% from 3 (2.6 attempts).
Doumbouya joins Bruce Brown (trade) and Griffin (dropout) on the Nets as former stamps from which Weaver has moved.
Okafor, 25, was signed into free agency by Weaver last November on a two-year $ 4 million deal as a backup center, but a left knee injury that required surgery and the development of rookie Isaiah Stewart quickly moved Okafor to the end of bench. He played 27 games, averaging 5.4 points and 2.4 rebounds on 61.8% shooting in 12.9 minutes per game. Match.
The deal saves Nets $ 47 million in payroll and taxes, according to ESPN.
