Adrian Wojnarowski is definitely a busy man these days. He’s so busy, he can’t even take a break from posting a Woj Bomb, even on live TV.
While discussing the future of the Toronto Raptors on ESPN’s SportsCenter on Wednesday, Wojnarowski paused in the middle of his explanation to post on Twitter a trade that had just taken place between the Sacramento Kings and the Detroit Pistons. And host Scott Van Pelt absolutely loved it!

Now, you can proudly tell your kids that you witnessed a Woj Bomb as it happened.
According to Wojnarowski, the Kings sent guard Cory Joseph and a pair of second round picks to the Pistons for Delon Wright. While both players are not household names, the deal makes sense for both teams. With guards De’Aaron Fox and Tyrese Haliburton on the roster, Joseph sees little playing time with the Kings. Wright is an upgrade from Joseph and he made the most out of his increased minutes with Pistons this season.
Contrary to what their record indicates, it appears the Kings aren’t tanking. The addition of Wright should help the team win a couple of more games. In 36 outings this season, he averaged 10.4 points, 4.6 rebounds, 5.0 assists, and 1.6 steals per game.
As Wojnarowski would probably point out, the Pistons received a veteran point guard with extensive experience in Joseph, who won a championship with the 2013-2014 San Antonio Spurs. He’s expected to add stability to the PG position behind reclamation project Dennis Smith Jr. The two second round picks, meanwhile, will be helpful in the Pistons’ full-on rebuild.
Fans are anxiously waiting for the big-time Woj Bombs to drop, the ones that have the potential to change the NBA landscape. And if Adrian Wojnarowski has to tweet them again on live TV, even better.
