The Detroit Pistons made their first trade offseason.
The team is trading forward Bruce Brown for the Brazilian Nets for Dazhanan Moses and a 2021 second-round pick, a source confirmed to the Free Press. The source requested anonymity because the deals could not be completed until Monday afternoon, when the NBA’s hold on the transaction would be lifted.
Drafted 42nd overall by the Pistons in 2018, Brown started 99 games in two seasons and played as one of the best perimeter defenders on the roster. He averaged 8.9 points, four assists and 4.7 rebounds in 28.2 minutes per game last year.
