Reggie Bullock signed a two-year, $5 million deal Monday to return to the Pistons, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports.
Bullock was limited by a knee injury to just 31 games in which he average 4.5 points and 2.1 rebounds over 15.1 minutes. Expect him to play a similar role for the Pistons next season, his third in Detroit and fifth in the league. Bullock, however, will miss the first five games of the season due to a suspension for violating the NBA's Anti-Drug Program.
Reggie Bullock was suspended Thursday for five games for violating the terms of the league's Anti-Drug Program, Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Bullock appeared in just 31 games for the Pistons last season while recovering from a left meniscus tear that left him out for an extended amount of time. When healthy, he served as the team's primary backup at shooting guard behind Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. For next season, while the state of Detroit's rotation is currently unknown, Bullock starting out the season inactive could open up an opportunity for Stanley Johnson to see extended time and establish himself as a key member of the rotation to open up his third NBA season.
