Pistons acquire Nelson in trade with Chicago

Updated 2/8/2018 2:28 PM

DETROIT -- The Detroit Pistons have acquired guard Jameer Nelson from the Chicago Bulls for center Willie Reed.

The teams announced the trade Thursday.

The Bulls also received the right to swap second-round draft picks with Detroit in 2022. Chicago immediately waived Reed.

Nelson, who turns 36 on Friday, averaged 5.1 points a game with New Orleans this season before being traded to Chicago last week. He hasn't played since.

The Pistons acquired Reed last week as well, as part of the trade that sent Blake Griffin to Detroit. Reed was suspended six games Tuesday after the NBA looked into the circumstances surrounding his arrest last August on a domestic violence charge.

Nelson played for Detroit coach Stan Van Gundy when they were both with the Orlando Magic.
