Expendable difference-maker: Bojan Bogdanovic

The Detroit Pistons might be the worst team in the NBA. As much talent as the team has, it's difficult to see how they're going to be able to turn it around before the season becomes a loss cause. In fact, you can probably already call this season a lost year. One player that is 100 percent an expendable piece on the roster is Bojan Bogdanovic. He's a player who was added in an attempt to help skip a couple of steps in their development, but that narrative is now completely out of the realm of possibility.

At this point, the Pistons are basically wasting Bogdanovic's time. At the age of 34 years old, it would be pretty unfortunate if the Pistons didn't move forward in trading him ahead of this year's NBA Trade Deadline. Bogdanovic is still playing effective basketball and could legitimately help a contender.

The Pistons are a young team that might need to take a step back before they end up taking a step forward. Bogdanovic is a player that absolutely doesn't belong on Detroit's roster right now.
