Jameer Nelson is available to play for the Pistons on Friday

Report: Bulls Trade Jameer Nelson to Pistons for Willie Reed

The Los Angeles Clippers originally traded Reed to the Pistons in the recent deal that also sent Blake Griffin to Detroit.

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. The Pistons have been short at guard since Reggie Jackson was sidelined with an ankle injury on December 26th. Nelson - who, like Reed, is on an expiring minimum contract - provided nothing to tanking Chicago. Reed is set to begin a six-game suspension as a result of domestic violence charges stemming from an incident this summer.

Jameer Nelson slides in as the primary backup to Ish Smith.

The Bulls acquired Nelson from the New Orleans Pelicans in the Nikola Mirotic trade strictly as salary ballast, and he nearly certainly would have been waived had Chicago not found a taker before the deadline. So far this season, he is shooting 41 percent from the floor and 36.4 percent from long-range distance.

The Pistons acquired James Ennis from the Memphis Grizzlies on Thursday for Brice Johnson and a 2022 second-round draft pick. Nelson was averaging 16.7 points per game back then which was his career-high, along with 50 percent from the field, 45 percent from the three-point line and 88.7 percent from the free-throw line. The Pistons have effectively made Griffin their backup center since the trade, using him and Anthony Tolliver together when Andre Drummond is on the bench. 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. Getting Ennis plugs that hole and allows them to have lanky defenders who can hit from 3-point range in the second unit, with Luke Kennard and Anthony Tolliver. For next season and later they have the ability to retain both Nelson (albeit unlikely beyond this season) and Ennis.
