Bulls Trade Jameer Nelson To Pistons For Willie Reed

Bulls Trade Jameer Nelson To Pistons For Willie Reed

According to a report from Yahoo Sports, the Pistons are largely making the trade to address some of the issues they had at guard this season.

General manager Jeff Bower went to work and a flurry of trade deadline activity allows Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy to be reunited with his old point guard. Reggie Jackson has been recovering from an injured ankle, leaving Ish Smith as the starter in that spot. Reed was suspended six games Tuesday after the National Basketball Association looked into the circumstances surrounding his arrest last August on a domestic violence charge. Jameer Nelson was acquired in the Nikola Mirotic trade that happened last week. So far this season, he is shooting 41 percent from the floor and 36.4 percent from long-range distance.

Charania also reported the teams will swap second-round picks in 2022 as part of the deal. He is averaging 3.9 points and 4.5 rebounds per game.

The Pistons are trying to see if they can make an impact in this year's Eastern Conference playoffs, so adding a player like Ennis on an expiring $3 million contract makes total sense. Johnson was acquired from the Los Angles Clippers in the Griffin trade, but has not appeared in a game for the Pistons since the deal. Through two National Basketball Association seasons, Reed has averaged 4.9 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 0.7 blocks per game with a.600 true shooting percentage.

Considering how hamstrung the Pistons are with regards to salary, the organization will likely value the opportunity to use early Bird rights to retain his services.

Minutes later, the Pistons added small forward James Ennis from the Memphis Grizzlies for Johnson, the same person told the Free Press.

Overall, the Pistons got better, both with the Griffin deal and Thursday's additions.
