Chicago Bulls trade Jameer Nelson to the Detroit Pistons

The Detroit Pistons picked up some backcourt help at Thursday's National Basketball Association trade deadline.

Nelson, who played for the Magic during Van Gundy's tenure, was acquired on February 1 by the Bulls along with Tony Allen and Omer Asik for Nikola Mirotic and a draft pick. James Ennis, who was also acquired by the Pistons, will not be available after getting stuck in bad weather today. Jameer Nelson was acquired in the Nikola Mirotic trade that happened last week.

The Detroit Pistons kicked off the NBA's trade deadline period with a blockbuster transaction, acquiring Blake Griffin, Willie Reed and Brice Johnson more than a week before the deadline.

According to the NBC Sports Chicago's Vincent Goodwill, the Bulls will immediately waive Reed.

Nelson began this season with the New Orleans Pelicans, appearing in 43 games and averaging 5.1 points per game off the bench.

He was recently handed a six-game suspension for a "domestic violence incident" which occurred when he was with the Heat in August.

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

A native of Chester, PA., Nelson played collegiately at Saint Joseph's University where he was named the Consensus National Player of the Year as a senior (2003-04) by earning the Associated Press, Wooden, Naismith, Rupp, Robertson and Chevrolet Player of the Year Awards, after leading the Hawks to a ideal regular season (27-0), the school's first #1 seed in the NCAA Tournament and a trip to the Elite Eight. Nelson was averaging 16.7 points per game back then which was his career-high, along with 50 percent from the field, 45 percent from the three-point line and 88.7 percent from the free-throw line. The 23-year-old Johnson was a first-round pick by the Clipper In 2016 out of North Carolina University. They have been able to add some depth with two players who can contribute for two players who were now quite clearly little more than throw-ins to the Blake Griffin deal.
