The Detroit Pistons have made their first trade of the offseason.
The team is trading guard Bruce Brown to the Brooklyn Nets for forward Dzanan Musa, a 2021 second-round pick and cash considerations, a source confirmed to the Free Press. The source requested anonymity because deals cannot be completed until noon Monday, when the NBA’s moratorium on transactions will be lifted.
Drafted 42nd overall by the Pistons in 2018, Brown started 99 games in two seasons and carved out a role 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.
Musa is a 6-foot-9 forward who was drafted 29th overall by the Nets in 2018. He appeared in 40 games last year, averaging 4.8 points while shooting 37.2% overall and 24.4% from the 3-point line.
The 2021 second-round pick will be sent to Detroit via Toronto.
