Undoubtedly, Bullock had his best season of his five year career as he set career highs in just about every statistical category. The former North Carolina guard is set to make $2.5 million during his final season of his two-year contract signed back in July 2017.
Bullock will be shut down for the rest of the season due to a knee injury, Rod Beard of the Detroit News reports.
Details on the injury are unclear, but with the Pistons officially eliminated from playoff contention, it makes sense to sit the 27-year-old for the final four games. Coach Stan Van Gundy confirmed that rookie Luke Kennard will move into the starting five in Bullock's place. Bullock will close what was by far his best NBA season with averages of 11.3 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 27.9 minutes per game.
Bullock generated 16 points (6-14 G, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, three assists and two steals across 33 minutes in Saturday's 115-109 win over the Knicks.
Bullock seemingly can be counted on for scoring in the mid-teens at a minimum each night and some serviceable complementary work in other categories. He wrapped up March with averages of 15.4 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.3 assists and has now drained multiple threes in 12 straight contests. The fifth-year veteran is enjoying a career year while getting his first extended opportunity in a starting role since being drafted in the first round by the Clippers in 2013.
Bullock poured in 17 points (7-13 FG, 3-6 3Pt) and added two assists across 31 minutes in Monday's 106-90 win over the Kings.
The sharpshooting wing was at it again, churning out his 16th consecutive double-digit scoring effort, a feat partly accomplished by Bullock draining multiple threes for the sixth straight contest. The former Tar Heel has also shot between 50.0 and 75.0 percent in each of the last five games, a torrid stretch that speaks to his value as a pure scorer. His contributions in other categories remain decidedly modest, hower, as Bullock is averaging just 2.9 rebounds and 2.3 assists over the eight March tilts he's suited up for.
Bullock recorded 13 points (5-10 FG, 3-5 3 PT), three rebounds, two assists and two steals in 31 minutes during Saturday's 100-87 loss to the Trail Blazers.
Bullock has played his way into a starting role this season and though he can be a bit inconsistent, he appears to be a key part of Detroit's future plans, something that Detroit will begin to address as their playoff aspirations slip away. This should only result in added responsibility for Bullock as the season comes to a close. If he gets sufficient minutes, he can be a very effective fantasy play.
