The Detroit Pistons have agreed to acquire guard Hamidou Diallo in a trade with the Oklahoma City Thunder, sending out Svi Mykhailiuk and the Houston Rockets' 2027 second-round pick.

The move adds another young wing player in Diallo to a Pistons team trying to figure out who its cornerstones will be as it tries to rebuild. Diallo, who will be a restricted free agent after this season, will have roughly two months to impress the league and increase his value. Meanwhile, the Thunder are hopeful that Mykhailiuk can provide some necessary outside shooting to a roster still identifying who the key pieces will be to build around Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Lu Dort.

Can Diallo carve out a future in Motown alongside Killian Hayes and Sekou Doumbouya? Will Mykhailiuk make a difference for the Thunder? And what will Oklahoma City do with all of those first- and second-round draft picks?

Kevin Pelton answers these questions and hands out trade grades for both teams.
