The Detroit Pistons made a big move at the deadline, acquiring Reggie Jackson from the Oklahoma City Thunder, according to Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski. The team had been linked with Norris Cole for weeks -- and Brooklyn's Jarrett Jack for much of the day -- but instead they pulled the trigger to acquire Jackson, a talented 24-year-old point guard whose role diminished in Oklahoma City after the Thunder acquired Dion Waiters from the Cleveland Cavaliers.
It's not yet clear who the Pistons gave up to acquire Jackson, but it will almost certainly be a rotation player -- and perhaps even Greg Monroe -- not the collection of expiring contracts previously thought to be available.
Update: D.J. Augustin could be going to Thunder, reports Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press:

So, now that we kind of have a good idea of what went down, what do you think?
