In what has become a quickly developing story, the Detroit Pistons have reportedly finalized a trade with the Orlando Magic for forward Tobias Harris in exchange for Ersan Ilyasova and Brandon Jennings. According to Chris Broussard, the trade is done and Harris is or will very shortly be officially made a Pistons.

It appears that the trade is a straight up swap, which is great for the Pistons. Not having to give up a draft pick is a huge benefit. The only downside of this trade is that Steve Blake or Spencer Dinwiddie will now become the backup point guard, which makes me wonder if Stan Van Gundy isn't quite done making deals with the Thursday deadline right around the corner.
