The Detroit Pistons will acquire veteran point guard Jameer Nelson from the Chicago Bulls for recently acquired center Willie Reed, a person with firsthand knowledge of the process told the Free Press on Thursday morning.

Nelson, 35, spent his first 10 seasons with the Orlando Magic, where he played for Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy.

The Bulls acquired Nelson last week in the Nikola Mirotic trade.

At the very least right now the Pistons alleviate some of the stress of being without Jackson by adding Nelson who is averaging 5.1 points and 3.6 assists per game this year.

Simmons is averaging 16.6 points, 7.9 rebounds and 7.3 assists this season, making a srtrong case for Rookie of the Year honours. Newly acquired Pistons forward Blake Griffin tweeted out his congratulations for Drummond.

But with Reggie Jackson still sidelined, Detroit is relying on a hodgepodge at point guard: Ish Smith, Dwight Buycks and Langston Galloway. That much was clear the moment they traded for Blake Griffin on January 29 and embarked on their current five-game win streak. He was acquired by the Pistons on January 30 in the trade involving Blake Griffin and the Los Angeles Clippers.

What the Bulls did get in the deal was a swapping of future second-round draft rights with the Pistons. In 871 career games, he's averaging 11.4 points per game and 5.1 assists per game.

The Pistons play the Clippers, Atlanta (twice), and New Orleans in the next four games leading up to the ALl-Star Break. 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. He's served one of his six games so far. Now he flipped the other piece of that trade Brice Johnson for Memphis Grizzly James Ennis. Just this past week the Pistons have acquired their much-needed superstar in Blake Griffin and are now starting to put more depth around him. He has appeared in nine games this season.
