Pistons acquire Jameer Nelson from Bulls, James Ennis from Grizzlies

Report: Bulls Trade Jameer Nelson to Pistons for Willie Reed

Nelson was a member of the 2009 Orlando Magic team with Dwight Howard that Stan Van Gundy coached to an NBA Finals appearance.

Later in the after, the Bulls waived the 27-year-old Reed, who was averaging 4.6 points and 2.9 rebounds in 10.2 minutes per game in 42 games this season.

Energized by Blake Griffin, the Pistons are back in the thick of the playoff race. Adding Nelson gives them insurance at point guard until Reggie Jackson is ready to return a reliable backup for the rest of the season.

Ennis has found a regular role with the Grizzlies over the last two seasons after spending time bouncing between the National Basketball Association and D-League prior to that.

Nelson was moved to Chicago in the deal that sent Nikola Mirotic to the Pelicans on February 2.

The role of third point guard is probably appropriate for Nelson as he prepares to celebrate his 36th birthday Friday. He is in the last year of the two-year, $6 million contract he signed with the Grizzlies in July 2016. Maybe. I doubt the present-focused Van Gundy blinked at the cost, especially considering he had no attachment to Willie Reed (who came to Detroit in the Griffin trade).

The Detroit Pistons made two trades before the deadline Thursday, acquiring point guard Jameer Nelson from the Chicago Bulls and forward James Ennis from the Memphis Grizzlies. 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. He was a first-round pick in the 2016 draft by the Clippers, but has played less than 50 minutes in his National Basketball Association career.

Make no mistake, the Pistons are going for it. He is now shooting 41 percent from the floor, 36.4 percent from three-point range and 76.5 percent from the free-throw line in 2017-18.
