The Oklahoma City Thunder have traded Reggie Jackson to the Detroit Pistons in a three-team deal, a source confirmed to ESPN.com.

Pistons acquired promising young point guard Reggie Jackson from the Oklahoma City Thunder and longtime Pistons star Tayshaun Prince from the Boston Celtics, according to a person with knowledge of the deals.

And it appears the price isn’t steep, with the Pistons having to surrender small forward Kyle Singler and point guard D.J. Augustin to the Thunder and forwards Jonas Jerebko and Luigi Datome to Boston just before today’s 3 p.m. trade deadline.

Jackson, 24, has expressed desire for a starting role, but with the inability to get it in Oklahoma City, his agent requested a trade. Jackson is set to be a restricted free agent this summer and is in search of a contract near the max. Jackson is averaging 12.8 points and 4.3 assists in 28.0 minutes per game, but has seen his playing time significantly dip since the Thunder added Dion Waiters in January.
