Detroit Pistons Los Angeles Lakers NBA

Lakers Contact Pistons Regarding Reggie Bullock

Written by TrevStone

With the Detroit Pistons season going down in a spiral there has been reports that they would be making a trade… And well guess who reached out to them? The Los Angeles Lakers.

The Lakers have been actively pursing Anthony Davis, but with the Lakers bad shooting adding a three-point shooter in Reggie Bullock could be a solid spark for Los Angeles.

The Lakers are currently the fourth worse- three point shooting team(33.7%). This season, Bullock is shooting 37.1 percent from behind the arc, 38.3 percent on catch and shoot threes and 38.8 percent on “open” 3-pointers. Open must give the shooter 4-6 feet to shoot.

Bullock only makes $2.5 million annually, he would be relatively easy to acquire if the Pistons are open to a move. The Pistons are just $482,000 below the luxury tax, per Bobby Marks of ESPN, so they can’t take any money back. They had trade exceptions that would have helped them facilitate a trade with the Lakers, but they expired on Jan. 29.

The Pistons are two games back of the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference and with Andre Drummond and Blake Griffin on their roster it’s possible to make a run. They have a ton of pressure to make the postseason. Detroit hasn’t made the playoffs since 2016.

Who could the Lakers possibly give up? Your guess is as good as mine. KCP back to Detroit? Please not. But there could be, Ivica ZubacSvi MykhailiukMoritz Wagner or Isaac Bonga.

What’s up with Lonzo?
