Bulls send Jameer Nelson to Pistons

The Detroit Pistons picked up some backcourt help at Thursday's National Basketball Association trade deadline.

Nelson goes back with Van Gundy to their days with the Orlando Magic. James Ennis, who was also acquired by the Pistons, will not be available after getting stuck in bad weather today.

Jameer Nelson is on the move again, as the Chicago Bulls reportedly traded him to the Detroit Pistons on Thursday for center Willie Reed ahead of the National Basketball Association trade deadline, according to Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports.

According to the NBC Sports Chicago's Vincent Goodwill, the Bulls will immediately waive Reed.

The Pistons are adding point guard depth as they wait for starter Reggie Jackson to return from injury. 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 NBA suspended Reed on Tuesday for six games due to a domestic violence incident.

Reed and Johnson was acquired from the Clippers as part of the Blake Griffin trade on January 29.

Nelson, 6-0, 190, has averaged 11.4 points, 3.0 rebounds, 5.1 assists and 28.0 minutes in 871 career National Basketball Association games with Orlando, Dallas, Boston, Denver and New Orleans.

The Bulls also received the right to swap second-round draft picks with Detroit in 2022. He is in the last year of the two-year, $6 million contract he signed with the Grizzlies in July 2016.

While the Pistons are likely to part ways with Nelson after the season, there may have been a longer-term plan in place for Ennis.

Johnson was rumored to be part of a deal the Pistons were pursuing to add Dante Cunningham from the New Orleans Pelicans but ultimately it is the Grizzlies and Ennis with which they find the fit to get a deal done.
