Confirmed that the #Pistons are trading with the #Knicks to get Nerlens Noel and Alec Burks.
Troy Weaver still a unicorn. - 9:58 PM

TJ McBride @TJMcBrideNBA
I could see a team out there needing a backup center (Noel) or extra scoring off the bench (Burks) so this trade still might have some dividends to pay out to Detroit in a handful of months. - 9:58 PM

Fred Katz @FredKatz
There was lots of talk for the past few weeks of the Knicks trying to move two of Kemba Walker, Alec Burks and Nerlens Noel. They could open up in the realm of $25M of room that way. Turns out, they moved all three and the 11th pick for no salary back. More than $30M in room now. - 9:58 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
That is a whole lot of money unloaded by the Knicks. Over $28M between Alec Burks, Nerlens Noel & Kemba Walker.
Detroit is eating up a lot of their available cap space, but it's always possible they re-flip Burks or Noel to someone else.
This is gonna be a large deal when done. - 9:57 PM

Mark Deeks @MarkDeeksNBA
You'd have to think there's pre-ordained plans to reroute Burks and Noel, because otherwise, it feels like they had more leverage than that. - 9:56 PM

Bobby Marks @BobbyMarks42
Detroit inherits the $10M contract of Alec Burks and $9.2M salary of Nerlens Noel.
Both players have a team option for 2023/24.
The trade leaves DET with $23M in room but that doesn't factor the FA hold for Marvin Bagley III.
DET tendered Bagley III a $7.2M Qualifying Offer. - 9:53 PM

James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Can confirm that the Pistons are acquiring Nerlens Noel, Alec Burks, two seconds (one of which is Detroit's own) and cash from the Knicks.
The Pistons are not sending any players to New York, per sources. ESPN first. - 9:53 PM

John Hollinger @johnhollinger
Knicks also could operate as "over cap team" and retain full non-taxpayer MLE if Kemba, Burks, Noel lumped into one big 3-way sign-and-trade with Dallas for Brunson. Looks like Knicks could even start Brunson at $24.25M or less and generate a $9.2M TPE for Kemba. - 9:49 PM

More on this storyline

Adrian Wojnarowski: New York will send Detroit back its 2023 second-round pick, a 2024 second-round pick via Miami and $6 million, sources tell ESPN. -via Twitter @wojespn / June 28, 2022

Several teams, including the Boston Celtics, have a degree of interest in trading for Burks, per sources. -via SportsNet New York / June 28, 2022

The Knicks also dangled Alec Burks on the trade market to several teams, including the Pacers and Cavaliers, before it was reported Burks underwent foot surgery and is expected to return for the start of training camp, league sources told HoopsHype. -via HoopsHype / June 24, 2022

The New York Knicks have had exploratory discussions on trading center Nerlens Noel to the Los Angeles Clippers, league sources told HoopsHype. Noel could fit into the Clippers' $9.7 million trade exception previously generated by the Serge Ibaka trade. The Knicks have a surplus of draft pick compensation -22 picks total over the next seven years) to dangle-. -via HoopsHype / June 28, 2022

The Knicks are widely regarded as a team looking to shed a number of contracts (such as those possessed by Alec Burks, Kemba Walker and Nerlens Noel) to create salary-cap space for the potential free-agent pursuits of Dallas' Jalen Brunson and perhaps even (gasp) Brooklyn's Kyrie Irving. Yet Monday night also delivered the strongest rumbles I've heard to date that a new multiyear deal to keep Mitchell Robinson in New York is looming. -via marcstein.substack.com / June 21, 2022
