DETROIT - The Pistons have added a point guard ahead of the NBA Trade Deadline.
The Pistons have traded Willie Reed to the Chicago Bulls for Jameer Nelson, a point guard who played under Stan Van Gundy in Orlando. The Pistons and Bulls will also swap second round picks in 2022.
The Pistons are adding point guard depth as they wait for starter Reggie Jackson to return from injury.
The Pistons are 5-0 since trading for Blake Griffin. Willie Reed was sent to Detroit in the Griffin trade.
The 35-year-old is averaging 5.1 points, 3.6 assists and 2.2 rebounds this season. Shooting 41 percent in 20.9 minutes per game for New Orleans. https://t.co/YdcufFQoXy — Derick Hutchinson (@Derick_Hutch) February 8, 2018
