Small forward Reggie Bullock will be a Piston for the foreseeable future, as the Detroit Pistons and Bullock agreed on a two-year, $5 million deal to keep the 26-year-old in the Motor City, according to The Vertical’s Shams Charania.
Bullock, a 2013 first-round pick, spent the last two seasons in Detroit and averaged 3.9 points per game in that span. He also knocked down 39.7 percent of his shots from beyond the arc in that time frame. Bullock played in 68 games in two seasons and started five times last season, while averaging 4.5 points and 2.1 rebounds.
It’s hard to tell at this time if Bullock will crack the starting lineup, especially since the Pistons just traded for Boston Celtics shooting guard Avery Bradley and drafted sharpshooter Luke Kennard out of Duke.
Even though Bullock re-signed with the Pistons, he will have to serve a five-game suspension for violating the NBA’s anti-drug policy. Bullock is a solid three-point shooter who could continue to play a key role on this team.
