Pistons acquire Nelson in trade with Chicago

The 2018 National Basketball Association trade deadline is off to a roaring start. Nelson, a veteran in his 13th year in the league, should prove capable of running an offense and generate the desired chemistry coach Stan Van Gundy has been looking for.

The Pistons send the Bulls Willie Reed, who was acquired by the Pistons in the deal that brought Blake Griffin to Detroit. 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.

As for Reed, the Pistons had little need for a backup big who was recently suspended six games for a domestic violence incident back in August.

In return they only had to give up Johnson, who didn't even play in a game for the Pistons after coming over in the Griffin trade, and a future second-round pick that clearly doesn't concern them at this point. Chicago and Detroit will also swap 2022 second-round picks as a part of the deal.

Detroit acquired Reed during the Blake Griffin trade, but the combination of losing Avery Bradley to the Clippers and Reggie Jackson's current injury has thinned the team's backcourt.

Nelson, 6-0, 190, has averaged 11.4 points, 3.0 rebounds, 5.1 assists and 28.0 minutes in 871 career National Basketball Association games with Orlando, Dallas, Boston, Denver and New Orleans. They, along with Pistons owner Tom Gores, had been coveting an elite-level player to help carry the load, along with franchise centerpiece Andre Drummond.

Minutes later, the Pistons added small forward James Ennis from the Memphis Grizzlies for Johnson, the same person told the Free Press.

While the Pistons are likely to part ways with Nelson after the season, there may have been a longer-term plan in place for Ennis.
