The Pistons continued their active offseason Tuesday, acquiring point guard Brandon Jennings from the Bucks in a sign-and-trade deal, according to The Associated Press. The Bucks will receive former top-10 pick Brandon Knight and two other prospects in the deal.

Jennings, who reportedly agreed to a three-year, $24 million contract with the Pistons, averaged 17.5 points and 6.5 assists per game last season in Milwaukee. He joins newcomers Josh Smith, Chauncey Billups and Luigi Datome in Detroit, as the Pistons continue to make high-profile moves in an effort to end a four-season postseason drought.

The Bucks added to their young talent pool with Knight and the two other prospects — Ukranian center Viacheslav Kravtsov and forward Khris Middleton.

Knight has been an average player in his first two seasons in the NBA. He averaged 13.3 points, 4.0 assists and 31.5 minutes per game in 2012-13. Kravtsov averaged 3.1 points and 1.8 rebounds in 9.0 minutes per game, while Middleton averaged 6.1 points and 1.9 rebounds in 17.6 minutes per game.

The Bucks also reportedly are finalizing a two-year, $6 million deal for combo guard Gary Neal, who averaged 9.5 points in 21.8 minutes per game last season with the Spurs.
