In addition, the Pistons and Bulls will be swapping second-round draft picks in 2022.

Reed was suspended this week by the National Basketball Association because of a domestic violence incident that occurred last August.

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. However, he should provide the Pistons with some of the outside shooting that they desperately need after Detroit shipped two of their best shooters in Avery Bradley and Tobias Harris to the Los Angeles Clippers.

Nelson was moved to Chicago in the deal that sent Nikola Mirotic to the Pelicans on February 2.

The 6-foot Nelson is a 14-year veteran who was averaging 5.1 points and 3.6 assists in 43 games this season for the New Orleans Pelicans.

With Detroit's newfound strengths and the fact that they are unbeaten since the Blake Griffin trade, we could say that they are going to make the playoffs this year.

General manager Jeff Bower went to work and a flurry of trade deadline activity allows Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy to be reunited with his old point guard.

After earlier trading away center Willie Reed, the Pistons have now traded away the other player they acquired in the Blake Griffin deal. The Chicago Bulls have sent Jameer Nelson to the Detroit Pistons in exchange for Willie Reed, per Shams Charania of The Vertical.

Ennis has found a regular role with the Grizzlies over the last two seasons after spending time bouncing between the National Basketball Association and D-League prior to that.

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

Ennis is making just over $3 million this season and isn't signed beyond 2017-18.
