(DETROIT) – The Detroit Pistons made two trades before the deadline Thursday, acquiring point guard Jameer Nelson from the Chicago Bulls and forward James Ennis from the Memphis Grizzlies. The Bulls acquired Willie Reed from the Pistons and then waived the center, it was announced. The Bulls and Pistons also traded 2022 second-round picks. The Grizzlies will get Brice Johnson and a future second-round pick from Detroit. Chicago acquired Nelson on Feb. 1 in the trade that sent Nikola Mirotic to the New Orleans Pelicans. Nelson will provide depth at point guard for the Pistons, who are without starter Reggie Jackson (sprained right ankle). 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. Nelson spent 10 seasons with the Magic and also has played for the Celtics, Mavericks and Nuggets during his career. The NBA suspended Reed this week for six games without pay because of a domestic violence incident in August. The Pistons acquired Reed from the LA Clippers on Jan. 29 as part of the Blake Griffin trade. Detroit (27-26) has won five games in a row since the Griffin deal. Ennis, a second-round pick of the Heat in 2013, averaged 6.9 points and 3.5 rebounds in 45 games for Memphis this season, his third with the team. He also had a short stint with New Orleans during the 2015-16 season.
