Pistons have yet to have buyout talks with Reggie Jackson

The Detroit Pistons have yet to have any buyout talks with veteran point guard Reggie Jackson.

The Pistons traded All-Star center Andre Drummond to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday.

Jackson becomes an unrestricted free agent after this season ends. It’s pretty doubtful he re-signs with the Pistons since the franchise loves Derrick Rose and has youngster Bruce Brown to develop.

Jackson has appeared in just 10 games for the Pistons this season because of a serious back injury. He’s averaging 14.1 points, 3.2 rebounds and 4.6 assists while shooting 37.5 percent from the field, 40.4 percent from beyond the arc and 78.3 percent from the free-throw line.

Jackson has been with the Pistons since February 2015. The Oklahoma City Thunder traded him to Detroit and then Jackson signed a multi-year contract with the Pistons.

For his career, Jackson averages 12.9 points, 3.0 rebounds and 4.6 assists. He played his college ball at Boston College.

The Pistons are 19-34 on the season. They are in 10th place in the Eastern Conference standings. Detroit begins the post-Drummond era on Friday against Chris Paul and the Oklahoma City Thunder.
