Luke Kennard and his representatives are "very confident that they will get an eight-figure deal in free agency," per James Edwards III of the Athletic.
Writer's Analysis: The Pistons can make Kennard a restricted free agent and he is set to make $5.3 million next season. Kennard has been sidelined since December 21st due to a patellar tendinitis in both knees. He should be all systems go once the NBA season resumes. Kennard would have to prove he is fully healthy before a team would commit to an eight-figure deal. The 23-year-old averaged 15.8 points, 3.5 rebounds, 4.1 assists and 2.6 triples across 15 games this year.
