Detroit Pistons add Jameer Nelson, James Ennis before trade deadline

Chicago Bulls trade Jameer Nelson to the Detroit Pistons

The Chicago Bulls have sent Jameer Nelson to the Detroit Pistons in exchange for Willie Reed, per Shams Charania of The Vertical.

Nelson and Stan Van Gundy go way back from their Orlando Magic days, so it's possible Nelson jumps right in and backs up Ish Smith tonight, but it's unlikely he plays significant minutes. Though Nelson started much of last season for the Denver Nuggets, he's dependent on shooting a high percentage from 3 (as in 2016-17, but not this season) to score with even adequate efficiency at this point because he rarely creates for himself or others off the dribble.

Nelson has appeared in 871 games, averaging 11.4 points and 5.1 assists.

About a month before the trade deadline, it was reported the Pistons were one of the most aggressive teams on the market.

Jameer Nelson and Willie Reed will have new teams for the second time in a week. In 871 career games, he's averaging 11.4 points per game and 5.1 assists per game.

24, 2018 with New Orleans.

Drummond added A late addition for the NBA All-Star Game, Pistons centre Andre Drummond will now take part in the Skills Challenge, which will be held on February 17th. So Nelson can serve as insurance in case of further injuries at the point rather than as a part of the rotation.

Minutes later, the Pistons added small forward James Ennis from the Memphis Grizzlies for Johnson, the same person told the Free Press. The 23-year-old Johnson was a first-round pick by the Clipper In 2016 out of North Carolina University. They're in ninth place in the East, but the path forward is clear and they can make up plenty of ground before the All-Star break and throughout the last 29 games of the regular season.
