Oklahoma City's Reggie Jackson Traded To Detroit Pistons In Multi-Team Deal

This year's NBA trade deadline has been absolutely bonkers, so good luck trying to keep up with where former Boston College guard Reggie Jackson will land...

Jackson, 24, has been looking for a new franchise after turning down a four-year, $48 million rookie contract extension with Oklahoma City. On Wednesday, he requested a trade in the hopes of landing a starting point guard job. Seemingly overnight, Jackson became one of the hottest commodities during today's NBA trade deadline.

At the start of the day, it was looking like Oklahoma City was ready to ship Jackson to the Brooklyn Nets for Brook Lopez.

Less than an hour later, OKC was thinking of pulling the plug on that deal and shipping Jackson to Utah for Enes Kanter.

Enter a third team in the Reggie Jackson sweepstakes: the Detroit Pistons.

And ANOTHER team: the Indiana Pacers.

The Pacers then exited the Reggie Jackson sweepstakes almost as soon as they entered them.

With just 20 minutes remaining before the trade deadline, everyone basically threw their hands up.

And when the dust finally settled, Jackson was shipped off to Detroit as part of a multi-team trade with Oklahoma City and Utah. Utah sends Enes Kanter to Oklahoma City for center Kendrick Perkins, while the Thunder get guards DJ Augustin and Klye Singer from Detroit.

Jackson has averaged 12.4 points, 4.2 assists and four rebounds for the Thunder this season and will become a restricted free agent in July. A first-round draft pick (24th overall) of Oklahoma City in the 2011 NBA Draft, Jackson has averaged 9.0 points, 3.0 assists and 3.0 rebounds in four seasons with the Thunder.

Best of luck to Reggie Jackson in Detroit.
