NBA Trade Grades: Bulls sending Jameer Nelson to Pistons

Pistons Jameer Nelson

The Pistons also got the ball rolling on trade deadline day, making the first deals of any team as they sent out Reed and Johnson.

Nelson, who turns 36 on Friday, averaged 5.1 points a game with New Orleans this season before being traded to Chicago last week.

The Pistons made a pair of shrewd deals ahead of Thursday's trade deadline - getting veteran guard Jameer Nelson from the Chicago Bulls for Reed and small forward James Ennis from the Memphis Grizzlies for Johnson - to restock their reserves. Reed will be waived, per Vincent Goodwill of NBC Sports Chicago. Bobby Marks from ESPN reported that the Bulls created a $1.43M trade exception with the trade.

Nelson started the season with the Denver Nuggets, but was soon cut after a one-on-one battle between Jamal Murray and Emmanuel Mudiay for the starting point guard spot.

Reed received a six-game suspension this week as the result of an National Basketball Association investigation into an August 5 domestic violence incident.

There has been a considerable amount of inconsistency behind Ish Smith with Galloway and Buycks both receiving multiple DNP-CDs as Stan Van Gundy has tried to navigate following Reggie Jackson's grade three ankle sprain late in December. He is averaging 4.6 points and 2.9 rebounds per game.

On "The Ingraham Angle", Laura Ingraham said Trump should wear this criticism from Bush as a "badge of honor". He added: "It's problematic that a foreign nation is involved in our election system".

The teams will also be swapping second-round picks in 2022.

Willie Reed is 27 years old and has been in the National Basketball Association for three seasons.

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

The Pistons are trying to see if they can make an impact in this year's Eastern Conference playoffs, so adding a player like Ennis on an expiring $3 million contract makes total sense.

What did the Pistons get from this trade?
