DETROIT – The Detroit Pistons are at a crossroads - to rebuild or compete.

The team owns the 12th pick in the upcoming NBA Draft - and according to one report, the team is open to moving it.

ESPN's Marc Stein tweeted Tuesday afternoon that the team is open to trading the pick for a 'win-now' veteran.

This would be a signal that the Pistons are looking to continue building to compete - not to rebuild.

The Pistons had a disappointing 2017 season, missing the playoffs the year after making the postseason in 2016 for the first time in six years.

There's much uncertainty with the roster moving into the offseason.
