Replace or fix this XX head

I recently bought a blown up xx knowing I was going to need to do a rebuild on the motor. When I tore into the motor I found the piston let go and bent in half. I think the piston hit the head. My question in is the head salvageable with me sanding out the nicks and polishing the head from where the piston hit or do I need to buy a used head? I attached pictures below.

Just have someone deck the head. Looks like it tapped it but not deep. If the valves are straight then deck the head and call it a day.
