Detroit Pistons trade Bruce Brown to Brooklyn Nets for Dzanan Musa, 2021 second round pick

The NBA’s trade moratorium was lifted Monday morning. Not long after, the Detroit Pistons made their first trade of the offseason.

The team is trading guard Bruce Brown to the Brooklyn Nets for forward Dzanan Musa and a 2021 second round pick, a source confirmed to the Free Press. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported it first.

Drafted 42nd overall by the Pistons in 2018, Brown started 99 games in two seasons and carved out a role as one of the best perimeter defenders on the roster. He averaged 8.9 points, four assists and 4.7 rebounds in 28.2 minutes per game last year.
