The Pistons will be bringing back one of their wing free agents this summer. Reggie Bullock has reportedly agreed to a two year, $5 million deal, first reported by Shams Charania.

Bullock came to Detroit as a throw-in for the Marcus Morris trade, a salary dump by the Phoenix Suns. It turns out that Bullock will outlast Morris.
He’s been a reliable perimeter threat in the few minutes he’s gotten on the court for the Pistons, shooting 40 percent over the past two seasons. But his health hasn’t been as reliable, especially last season as he missed extended time with a knee injury. He’ll also be suspended for the first five games of next season for a violation of the league’s anti-drug policy.
Bullock will once again be fighting for minutes with a crowded wing situation in Detroit, but his ability to fill time at small forward will be valuable after the team traded Morris for Avery Bradley.
Welcome back Reggie.
