RUMOR: Reggie Bullock, Pistons interested in reunion this summer
The Pistons traded Bullock to the Los Angeles Lakers at this year’s February trade deadline. The guard played in 174 games with Detroit and was well-liked by his teammates and the front office.
Bullock becomes an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
And from what I’m hearing, #Pistons are also interested in bringing him back. Depends on what Bullock can get elsewhere. Played poorly for Lakers so price may go down. #Pistons just have MLE and part of it likely goes to PG. https://t.co/KPA5zbObT5

As Ellis points out, Reggie Bullock could be had by the Pistons this summer for cheap since he’s struggled in his time with the Lakers.
In 15 games with Los Angeles, Bullock is averaging 8.5 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.1 assists per contest while shooting 39.8 percent from the field, 29.9 percent from beyond the arc and 73.3 percent from the free-throw line.
The Lakers traded for Bullock because they were in need of perimeter shooting. For whatever reason, Bullock just hasn’t been able to get it going with the Purple and Gold.
The Lakers are going to miss the playoffs this season, while the Pistons — barring a late-season collapse — will make it for the first time since 2016.
Bullock is making $2,500,000 this season. We’ll see once free agency starts on July 1 what his market will be and which teams will pursue him.
