I don't think Gordon would keep them from taking Beal. They likely made that deal for the pick from Detroit, and they're so far away from contention that by the time they might have a chance at the playoffs, Gordon will likely be off the books.
That said, I don't think they're taking Beal anyway.
Eh the pick is lottery protected for the pistons. I think they did it for Gordon more than for the pick.
