Report: Pistons guards Reggie Bullock, Ish Smith garnering trade interest around the league
Detroit Pistons guards Reggie Bullock and Ish Smith are garnering interest around the league with the trade deadline approaching, according to Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press.
Bullock is in the final year of his contract and will become an unrestricted free agent after this season ends. The 27-year-old is making $2.5 million this season. Smith is also in the final season of his deal, and the 30-year-old is making $6 million this year.
A Pistons source told the Free Press recently Bullock, along with backup point guard Ish Smith, is garnering trade interest.
In 38 games for the Pistons this season, Bullock is averaging 12.3 points, 2.6 rebounds, and 2.4 assists per game. He is shooting 41.6 percent from the field, 38.4 percent from beyond the arc and 87.9 percent from the free-throw line.
Bullock is the best three-point shooter on the Pistons and helps space the floor for Blake Griffin and Andre Drummond. Smith, meanwhile, is one of the fastest players in the game. The nine-year pro is averaging 8.7 points, 1.8 rebounds, and 2.8 assists on the year and shooting 40.3 percent from the floor, 33.3 percent from the 3-point line and 66.7 percent from the foul line.
Smith is currently dealing with a groin injury which forced him to miss over a month of action. He re-aggravated his groin on Jan. 18.
