The Los Angeles Clippers, Brooklyn Nets and Detroit Pistons officially completed a three-team trade on Thursday:
- Nets receive: G Landry Shamet and draft rights to F Reggie Perry (57th overall pick in 2020 NBA draft) from Los Angeles; G Bruce Brown from Detroit
- Clippers receive: G Luke Kennard, C Justin Patton and four second-round draft picks (Portland 2023, Detroit 2024, 2025 and 2026) from Detroit; draft rights to G/F Jay Scrubb (55th overall pick in 2020 NBA draft) from Brooklyn
- Pistons receive: Draft rights to Saddiq Bey (19th overall pick in 2020 NBA draft), F Dzanan Musa, draft rights to G Jaylen Hands and Toronto's 2021 second-round draft pick from Brooklyn; G Rodney McGruder and cash considerations from Los Angeles
Villanova's Saddiq Bey was selected at No. 19. The Pistons had drafted Killian Hayes at No. 7 and Isaiah Stewart at No. 16 (via the Portland Trail Blazers). Bey averaged 16.1 points, 4.7 rebounds and 2.4 assists with 47.7 percent shooting in 33.9 minutes per game last season.
Shamet, who was drafted by the Philadelphia 76ers with the No. 26 pick out of Wichita State in 2018, was dealt to the Clippers midway through his rookie year. He appeared in 79 games that season, and in 53 outings in 2019-20, he posted 9.3 points, 1.9 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game with 40.4 percent shooting.
The 12th selection in 2017, former Duke star Kennard had appeared mostly off the bench for the Pistons throughout his first two seasons. He put together a career campaign last season, posting 15.8 points per game in 28 contests, including 25 starts, before he was sidelined by knee tendinitis, according to Matt Charboneau of the Detroit News.
The 29-year-old McGruder, who made his NBA debut with the Miami Heat in 2016 and was claimed by the Clippers off waivers in April 2019, appeared in 56 games in 2019-20, posting 3.3 points and 2.7 rebounds per game.
