The Detroit Pistons are trading guard Delon Wright to the Sacramento Kings for guard Cory Joseph and two second-round picks, sources told ESPN on Wednesday night.

The picks going to Detroit will be a 2021 second-rounder via the Los Angeles Lakers and the Kings’ own 2024 second-rounder, sources told ESPN. The Pistons now own three second-round picks in the 2021 draft, including Charlotte’s, Toronto’s and now Sacramento’s.

The deal reunites Joseph with his former Toronto Raptors coach, Dwane Casey, in Detroit.

Wright, 28, is guaranteed $8.5 million for next season. He moves into the Kings’ guard rotation with De’Aaron Fox, Tyrese Haliburton and Buddy Hield.

Wright has averaged 10.5 points, 4.6 rebounds and 5.1 assists for the Pistons this season.

Joseph, 29, has averaged 6.7 points in 43 games this season.
