The Detroit Pistons have agreed a sign-and-trade deal with restricted free agent Brandon Jennings from the Milwaukee Bucks, according to ESPN.com.
The 23-year-old is expected to sign a three-year contract worth in excess of $25m, with Brandon Knight, Khris Middleton and Viacheslav Kravtsov all moving in the opposite direction.
Jennings, who has been with the Bucks since 2009 after he became the first player to skip college to play professional basketball in Europe, seemed unlikely to be moving teams this month, but the Pistons look to have spared him.
The point guard became a restricted free agent when the Bucks decided not to renew his contract in 2012, despite others from his draft class receiving new deals, and he was considering staying with the Bucks on a one-year qualifying offer.
The Pistons have already signed three other free agents during the offseason, with Josh Smith, Chauncey Billups and Luigi Datome already joining the Michigan-based team.
