Thunder trade deadline roundup
Thursday February 19th, 2015

The Oklahoma City Thunder have traded point guard Reggie Jackson to the Detroit Pistons as part of a three-team deal with the Utah Jazz, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports reports.

The Thunder will acquire Kyle Singler and D.J. Augustin from the Pistons and will also send Kendrick Perkins to the Jazz in exchange for Enes Kanter, Wojnarowski reports.

Oklahoma City will also send forward Grant Jerrett to Utah, the Jazz's David Locke reports. The Jazz will send forward Steve Novak to Oklahoma City, according to Darnell Mayberry.

On Wednesday, Wojnarowski reported Jackson had asked the Thunder for a trade, as his playing time has steadily decreased this season. In the 18 games since the Thunder acquired Dion Waiters, Jackson averaged 8.5 points, 3.6 rebounds and 2.7 assists in just 20 minutes per game.

Kanter had also reportedly requested a trade. The 22-year-old was the No. 3 pick in the 2011 draft and is averaging 13.8 points and 7.8 rebounds while shooting 49.1 percent in 27.1 minutes this season.

Jackson was behind Russell Westbrook in the Thunder's lineup and will have an opportunity for more playing time in Detroit because point guard Brandon Jennings is out for the season with a torn Achilles.

With Westbrook and Kevin Durant out of the lineup earlier this season, Jackson averaged 20.2 points, 7.8 assists and 5.2 rebounds in 13 starts. He will be a restricted free agent this summer. In past years, the Thunder have also traded Jeff Green and James Harden before they reached restricted free agency.

The Jazz reportedly plan to buyout Perkins' contract. Once his buyout is complete, the Cleveland Cavaliers, Los Angeles Clippers and Chicago Bulls are the leading contenders to acquire the center, according to Wojnarowski.

Heat acquire Goran Dragic from Suns

The Pistons are 21-33 on the season and are two games behind the Miami Heat for the final playoff spot.

Oklahoma City won five of its last six games before the All-Star break to pull within a half-game of the Phoenix Suns for the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference. The Thunder host the Dallas Mavericks on Thursday.
