The Detroit Pistons will shut down starting shooting guard Reggie Bullock for the remainder of the NBA season, giving rookie Luke Kennard the chance to start for the last four games of this 2017-18 campaign, according to Rod Beard of The Detroit News.

With the team already out of playoff contention, Bullock has been one of the few shining points of this season — benefitting from more consistent playing time and aided by the Blake Griffin trade, which freed up minutes at the shooting guard and small forward positions with Avery Bradley and Tobias Harris moving out of town.

The North Carolina product has been a marksman from deep, connecting in 44.5 percent of his 3-point shots, currently trailing Indiana’s Darren Collison for the 3-point percentage crown.

Kennard has played a very limited role in his first year with the team, but made a splash in the Summer League, hitting game-tying and game-winning clutch buckets to take the Pistons to the finals, where they lost in overtime to the Dallas Mavericks.

A lefty sniper, who is able to put in on the floor, Kennard has a chance to play himself into a rotation spot if he shows enough promise as a starter through these last four games of the season.
