However, Reed, who was suspended for six games by the league after a domestic violence incident, will be waived. Adding Nelson gives them insurance at point guard until Reggie Jackson is ready to return a reliable backup for the rest of the season. As Charania later reported, Chicago will also have the right to swap second round picks in 2022 as part of the deal. Nelson - who, like Reed, is on an expiring minimum contract - provided nothing to tanking Chicago. After the Blake Griffin trade thinned out the Pistons' wing rotation, Galloway is more important there, so there was some need for a steadier hand at the point.

Reed, 27, was acquired from the L.A. Clippers on January 29, 2018.

Nelson has come off the bench for the New Orleans Pelicans and was traded to the Bulls before being moved to the Pistons. Nelson was a member of the 2009 Orlando Magic team with Dwight Howard that Stan Van Gundy coached to an NBA Finals appearance. Sports, the Pistons will be acquiring veteran point guard Jameer Nelson in a trade with the Chicago Bulls while sending back big man Willie Reed as compensation.

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 saw limited action in three games before his suspension.

Johnson, 23, a 2016 first-round pick by the Clippers, was averaging 1.8 points this season for the Pistons. He is averaging 3.9 points and 4.5 rebounds per game.

Ennis is averaging almost seven points and three and a half rebounds per contest with the Grizzlies. Injuries at the position have hampered the Pistons the last two seasons, and all their progress is just a Smith injury away from hurting their season again.
