The Pistons have agreed to a trade with the Bulls that sends power forward Cameron Bairstow to Detroit in exchange for combo guard Spencer Dinwiddie, the team announced. The deal is official, per the press release. Chicago has confirmed the trade with a press release of its own.

Bairstow, 25, appeared in 18 games with Chicago last season, averaging 1.9 points, 1.6 rebounds in 5.7 minutes per outing.  The two-year veteran was drafted out of the New Mexico with the No. 49 overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft.  As a senior for the Lobos, he averaged a Mountain West Conference-high 20.4 points, 7.4 rebounds and 32.9 minutes in 34 games. Bairstow holds career averages of 1.2 points, 1.0 rebounds and 4.6 minutes in 36 NBA games with the Bulls. His 2016/17 salary of $980,431 is non-guaranteed.

Dinwiddie, 23, completed his second NBA season with averages of 4.8 points, 1.8 assists, 1.4 rebounds and 13.3 minutes over 12 contests.  He was drafted by the Pistons with the No. 38 overall selection in the 2014 NBA Draft. Dinwiddie owns career averages of 4.4 points, 2.7 assists, 1.4 rebounds and 13.3 minutes in NBA 46 games. The player is also set to earn $980,431 next season, an amount that is non-guaranteed.

Probably won’t mean much in the long run, but I am leaning towards the Bulls as winners. Dinwiddie is still young and could make an impact with a better jumper and more playing time, which may be why he was at the end of the bench this year. Bairstow is a “what you see is what you get” kind of player. I see Bairstow getting waived unless SVG can turn him into a legit stretch 4 or keep him as an undersized 5.

Meh…nothing more than two teams trying to get some fresh faces in and to shake up the depth chart. Their contracts are the same so if both don’t impress I imagine they would get cut. Although I agree that Chicago gets the slight edge. Of the two, Dinwiddie seems to be the slightly better player.

As a Pistons fan, I think it’s a win-win. Bulls need depth at PG, Pistons need depth at PF. Dinwiddie is going to be a solid player off the bench in the future, young and very smart minded. Good trade
