Bulls Trade Jameer Nelson To Pistons For Willie Reed

Chicago and Detroit will also swap 2022 second-round picks as a part of the deal. Wherever Reed lands, he won't be available to play until February 25 thanks to a six-game suspension due to an offseason domestic violence incident.

Neither Johnson nor Reed had much of a role or future with the Pistons but they were able to be flipped for two players who should be able to help down the stretch.

During Reggie Jackson's absence with a severely sprained ankle, which has made Ish Smith a starter, Van Gundy has struggled to settle on a backup point guard. He was traded to Chicago last week in the multi-player deal that sent Nikola Mirotic to the Pelicans, but he didn't play in a game for the Bulls.

Nelson will be reunited with Stan Van Gundy, for whom he played during the coach's tenure with the Orlando Magic from the 2007-08 season to the 2011-12 season. They replenished some of that with the other two acquisitions in the Clippers deal: Willie Reed and Brice Johnson.

'US to move troops from Iraq to Afghanistan'
The United States began its drawdown of troops from Iraq, an Iraqi spokesman and Western contractors told the Associated Press . The contractors spoke on condition of anonymity in line with regulations and declined to reveal the exact size of the drawdown.

Overall, the Pistons got better, both with the Griffin deal and Thursday's additions. He averaged 5.1 points and 3.6 assists and shot 36 percent on 3-pointers in roughly 21 minutes per game.

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. Reed, who had played just nine minutes over three games since being acquired with Griffin, didn't appear to be in Detroit's plans.

Ennis is averaging almost seven points and three and a half rebounds per contest with the Grizzlies.

Johnson, 23, a 2016 first-round pick by the Clippers, was averaging 1.8 points this season for the Pistons.
