Bullock, making $2.5 million this season, will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason so the Pistons must weigh re-signing him, trading him or risk losing him for nothing. The Pistons would like to re-sign Bullock and Smith (also a free agent) this offseason, according to the team source. It makes for a tricky situation. There are certain trade proposals that would be a no-brainer. If a team offers a first-round pick, it would be smart for the Pistons to move Bullock. Adding a solid first-rounder to their own pick would go toward the Pistons accumulation of assets. But a second-rounder? The decision becomes hazy.
The Detroit Pistons announced today that the team has signed free agent guard Ish Smith and free agent forward Jon Leuer to multi-year contracts. Per team policy, terms of the contracts were not disclosed.
Keith Pompey: A source said Smith will get a three-year $18 million deal with the #DetroitPistons. He made $1.1 million last season.

The 76ers want to bring Ish Smith back. The point guard, who will become an unrestricted free agent at 12 a.m. Friday, has been informed of the Sixers’ interest. The only thing is, they are looking at him in a backup role. Smith doesn’t have a problem with that. He intends to battle for the starting position wherever he goes.
He’s going to work on his weaknesses this summer and take that next step, wherever it leads him. Brown and Smith hope that’s back in Philly. “I enjoy having him around,” the coach said. Said Smith: “Yeah, I love this city. Fans have been great. Man I would love to, but you never know.”
Despite that, the Sixers (9-63 through Friday) offered Smith, shooting guard Nik Stauskas, and a protected first-round pick to the Atlanta Hawks for point guard Dennis Schroder at the Feb. 18 trade deadline, according to sources. The uncertainty surrounding the re-signing of Smith this summer was a holdup for the Hawks, according to one source. Smith, whose stock has risen, is expected to have plenty of suitors when he becomes a free agent.
The New Orleans Pelicans announced today that the team has signed guard Ish Smith. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Undrafted out of Wake Forest in 2010, Smith has appeared in 246 career regular season games with Houston, Memphis, Golden State, Orlando, Milwaukee, Phoenix, Oklahoma City and Philadelphia, holding career averages of 3.6 points, 2.3 assists and 1.5 rebounds in 12.3 minutes per game. New Orleans’ roster now stands at 15.

Scott Kushner: #Pelicans only have 14 on roster, so no other move necessary to add Ish Smith. Expect an official announcement sometime tomorrow. @hoopshype
