By Edward Cardenas

AUBURN HILLS (CBS Detroit) – The Detroit Pistons formally announced Thursday that the organization has acquired three players from the Phoenix Suns for a 2020 second round draft selection.

The Pistons acquired forward Marcus Morris, guard Reggie Bullock and forward-guard Danny Granger in the trade.

Morris, 25, appeared in 81 games (35 starts) with Phoenix last season averaging career highs in points (10.4 ppg), rebounds (4.8 rpg), assists (1.6 apg) and minutes (25.2 mpg).

Bullock, 24, completed his second NBA season with averages of 1.9 points, 1.4 rebounds and 9.4 minutes in 36 games (two starts) with Phoenix and the Los Angeles Clippers.

Granger, 32, appeared in 30 games (six starts) with the Miami HEAT last season before being acquired by the Suns, averaging 6.3 points, 2.7 rebounds and 20.4 minutes per game.

The Suns reportedly traded the players to free up cap space to pursue LaMarcus Aldridge. He signed with the San Antonio Spurs, according to his Twitter account.
