Detroit Pistons waive Killian Hayes as roster balloons after trades

The Killian Hayes era has come to an end.

The Detroit Pistons officially parted ways with the 2020 No. 7 overall pick — the first selection by general manager Troy Weaver — on Thursday, releasing him with less than two hours to go before NBA trade deadline.

The Pistons on Wednesday added forward Simone Fontecchio from the Utah Jazz, then a few hours later, dealt Monte Morris to Minnesota for Shake Milton, Troy Brown Jr. and a 2030 second-round pick. On Thursday, the team traded Bojan Bogdanovic and Alec Burks to New York Knicks in exchange for guards Ryan Arcidiacono, Malachi Flynn, Quentin Grimes, forward Evan Fournier and two second-round draft picks. The Pistons also added 76ers guard Danuel House and a 2024 second-round pick (which originally belonged to the Knicks) in exchange for a highly protected 2028 second-round pick.
