Pistons interested in bringing back Lakers wing Bullock

Lakers forward/guard Reggie Bullock enters free agency at the end of the season.

The Detroit Pistons traded shooting guard Reggie Bullock to the Los Angeles Lakers in February but may have an interest in bringing him back, as relayed by Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press.

Bullock is averaging 8.5 points in 15 appearances with the Lakers entering Tuesday’s game at the Milwaukee Bucks. That’s down from the 12.1 points he scored with the Pistons this season. He is also shooting 29 percent on 3-pointers, compared to 41 percent with the Pistons.

“Talked to Bullock the other night and he definitely seemed interested in a return engagement,” Ellis reported. “And from what I’m hearing, Pistons are also interested in bringing him back. Depends on what Bullock can get elsewhere. Played poorly for Lakers so price may go down.”

Bullock is earning $2.5 million this season and becomes a free agent at the end of the season. He is one of eight players on the Lakers who are eligible for free agency in July — joining Rajon Rondo, Lance Stephenson, JaVale McGee, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Mike Muscala, Tyson Chandler and Alex Caruso.
