Jalen Duren is getting traded somewhere.
Mass hysteria broke out on Twitter after Duren was drafted at No. 13 by the Hornets – with reports simultaneously linking him to the Knicks and Pistons. It turned out to be both.
The Memphis University center was traded to the Knicks and then dealt to the Pistons, along with point guard Kemba Walker.
Is is unclear what the Knicks, who previously traded the No. 11 pick Ousmane Dieng to the Thunder for multiple draft picks, got in return. However, Marc Stein then reported the move would help the Knicks free up salary cap space in their pursuit of Jalen Brunson.
