The Utah Jazz are on the verge of trading Bojan Bogdanovic to the Detroit Pistons in exchange for forward Kelly Olynk and point guard Saben Lee, multiple outlets reported Thursday.

Bodganovic, 33, would join the list of stars to exit Utah amid the team’s rebuild. The Jazz sent Rudy Gobert to Minnesota for a package of draft picks and players and then dispatched Donovan Mitchell to Cleveland for another haul of picks and players.
