Detroit Pistons

Reggie Bullock is, in my opinion, one of the most underrated players in all of basketball. He’ll be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season, and Detroit may have a hard time keeping him around due to financial concerns, so maybe they will look to trade him.

He does so many things well. He can shoot, he’s a good cutter and he’s an excellent defender. He’d fit in nicely in Charlotte as a starter or as a bench player. Detroit adding Zeller would give them a really good backup behind Andre Drummond at center.

Jon Leuer is also talented, by the way. Injuries have really hurt him over the years, but he’s a mobile big that can put the ball on the floor and attack the rim. He’s shown in the past that he is capable of shooting from three-point range, but it’s not his greatest strength.

The big thing here is landing a player like Reggie Bullock, who would help the Hornets in so many ways. He’s definitely a player to watch throughout the season, as multiple teams will have interest in either trading for him, or signing him when he becomes a free agent after the season.
