Oklahoma City Thunder Trade Reggie Jackson to Detroit Pistons

The Oklahoma City Thunder have agreed to trade Reggie Jackson to the Detroit Pistons.  The Pistons will send Kyle Singler and D.J. Augustin to the Thunder, who will send Kendrick Perkins to the Utah Jazz for Enes Kanter.  The Jazz also end up with a first and second round draft pick.

Jackson's value is at an all time high now, and gets to play Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe.

Detroit  is just two games out of the playoffs in the weak Eastern Conference

The injury to Brandon Jennings a few weeks ago allowed this trade to happen and the reason Jackson was not traded to Brooklyn for Brook Lopez .

Kanter will probably get even less minutes with the Thunder, than his 27 minutes with the Jazz.  His value seems to take a hit with this deal.  Steven Adams had started all 50 games he has played in for the Thunder this season, up until the Sunday before the All-Star break, when he fractured his hand.  He will return sometime in March.  You would have to guess that Kanter would take over as the teams starting Center until Adams returns.

Adams value shouldn't change much once he is back.

Augustin had done a nice job filling in for Jennings, but will return to a bench player and loses nearly all of his fantasy basketball value.
