Pistons Acquire Jameer Nelson From Bulls For Willie Reed

Pistons Acquire Jameer Nelson From Bulls For Willie Reed

What the Bulls did get in the deal was a swapping of future second-round draft rights with the Pistons. Reed was suspended six games Tuesday after the National Basketball Association looked into the circumstances surrounding his arrest last August on a domestic violence charge.

No, it's not a glamorous trade, but Nelson will improve the Pistons' depth.

Though his name is bigger than his current production, Nelson should be a solid addition for a Pistons team that's thin at point guard due to Reggie Jackson's injury.

Nelson was moved to Chicago in the deal that sent Nikola Mirotic to the Pelicans on February 2. Since the deal was announced, the Pistons have turned an eight-game losing streak into a five-game winning streak and jumped back in the playoff picture. Reed was acquired in the Griffin deal and was suspended earlier in the week.

Nelson, 35, spent his first 10 seasons with the Orlando Magic, where he played for Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy.

Overall, the Pistons got better, both with the Griffin deal and Thursday's additions. At 6-foot-7, 210 pounds, Ennis has good size, defends well and is a 37-percent 3-point shooter in his four-year National Basketball Association career.

The first trade that the Bulls made was trading Jameer Nelson to the Detroit Pistons.

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.

Ennis, 27, is in his fourth National Basketball Association season, averaging 6.3 points and 3.3 rebounds in his career. He is averaging 6.9 points per game, 1.1 assists per game and 3.5 rebounds per game. But at least he's just 27 if the Bulls want to take a flier on evaluating him for next season, and moving up in the second round only helps.
