Former Oregon Ducks big man Bol Bol is not headed to the Motor City after all. According to a tweet from Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Detroit Pistons failed Bol on his incoming physical with the team, which allowed them to void the trade.

After one injury-shortened season in Eugene, Bol was the 44th overall pick of the 2019 NBA draft, and was traded one day later to Denver for a future second round pick.

Now he’ll remain with Denver for the time being, a team that has had little use for him this season. Bol has only appeared in 14 games for Denver this year, playing less than five minutes per game.

It is unclear at this point why exactly Bol did not pass his physical, but it stands to reason this could impact Denver’s ability to trade Bol again this season – which is a bummer for Bol who would have had a much better opportunity to see the floor in Detroit.
