2020 NBA Draft

Reports: Clippers, Nets and Pistons agree to three-team deal

The Pistons reportedly will add the 19th overall pick in exchange for Luke Kennard, who will head to the Clippers.

From NBA media reports

Luke Kennard averaged 15.8 points in 28 games for Detroit last season.

The LA Clippers have agreed to acquire Luke Kennard from the Detroit Pistons as part of a three-team trade that includes the Brooklyn Nets, according to reports from Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN and Shams Charania of The Athletic.

The Clippers will send Landry Shamet to the Nets in exchange for the No. 19 pick, which LA will then send to the Pistons for Kennard.

LA will also send Rodney McGruder to the Pistons as part of the deal, according to Wojnarowski. In addition, the Clippers reportedly will send the 55th pick to the Nets for the 57th.

Kennard missed most of the 2019-20 season due to knee tendinitis. Over 28 games, the 12th overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft averaged career-highs for points (15.8), assists (4.1) and rebounds (3.5) as a starter for Detroit.

Shamet, who reportedly is headed to Brooklyn, has been solid during his first two seasons in the league with averages of 9.2 points and 1.8 rebounds in 24.7 minutes. He was selected by the Philadelphia 76ers with the 26th overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft.

The 19th overall pick was used to select Saddiq Bey.
