The New York Knicks are acquiring forward Bojan Bogdanovic and guard Alec Burks from the Detroit Pistons ahead of Thursday’s NBA trade deadline, ESPN reported.

Per the report, the Pistons will receive guards Quentin Grimes, Evan Fournier, Malachi Flynn and Ryan Arcidiacono as well as two future second-round draft picks.

Bogdanovic, 34, is averaging 20.2 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 28 games (27 starts) this season. He is making 41.5 percent of his shots from 3-point range.

Burks, 32, is contributing 12.6 points, 2.6 boards and 1.6 assists in 43 games off the bench for Detroit. He played for the Knicks in 2020-21 and 2021-22 seasons.

Grimes, 23, is averaging 7.3 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 45 games (18 starts) this season, his third with the Knicks.

Fournier, 31, has played in just three games this season, contributing 4.0 points and 1.3 boards.

Flynn, 25, is averaging 2.2 points in 14 games off the bench this season.
