Reed (suspension) will be waived by the Bulls, Vincent Goodwill of NBC Sports Chicago reports. This isn't too surprising given that Reed is in the middle of serving a six-game suspension and wouldn't have much of a role on Chicago anyway. Given the the question marks surrounding Reed's status following his domestic violence incident, it seems unlikely that the big man will be able to find a home before the end of the 2017-18 season.
Reed (suspension) was traded to the Bulls on Thursday in exchange for Jameer Nelson, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports. This is the second time in just over a week that Reed has been traded after the Clippers shipped him to Detroit as part of the Blake Griffin deal. Reed was recently suspended six games for his role in a domestic violence incident, so he'll have to serve the rest of that before putting a Bulls uniform on, but given that Chicago is likely more focused on the development of their young frontcourt talent like Cristiano Felicio and Bobby Portis, Reed's role on his new team will likely be limited once he returns.
Reed has been suspended six games for his role in a domestic violence incident back on Aug. 5, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports. Reed was arrested on Aug. 5 on a misdemeanor battery charge and as originally expected, he'll now face discipline from the league. Look for Reed to miss the next six games, which makes his first opportunity to return a Feb. 25 matchup against the Hornets. Since being traded from the Clippers to the Pistons at the end of January, Reed has seen action in three games, but logged a total of just nine minutes and appears to be outside the regular rotation. His absence shouldn't have a drastic impact elsewhere on the roster.
Reed is available to make his Pistons debut Thursday against the Grizzlies, Keith Langlois of Pistons.com reports. It's unclear how big of a role Reed will play with his new team, so we'll likely have to use a wait-and-see approach. With the Clippers this season, he averaged 4.9 points and 3.1 rebounds across 10.7 minutes per game.
Reed, who was acquired from the Clippers on Monday, won't be available for Tuesday's game against the Cavaliers, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports. None of the three players traded to Detroit -- Blake Griffin and Brice Johnson were the others -- will suit up Tuesday as they get acclimated to their new surroundings. Reed had been serving as the backup to DeAndre Jordan in Los Angeles, and will likely fill as a similar role behind Andre Drummond in Detroit, though he may face competition from Eric Moreland on that front.
