2018 Fantasy Outlook
Bullock started the 2017-18 campaign on a five-game suspension and then struggled to stay in the rotation for roughly the first two months of the season before finally being given a chance for extended run. By mid-December, Bullock earned a starting role and ended up working with the top unit in 52 of the career-high 62 games he played in. His workload would become even more secure following the Blake Griffin addition, as that sent Avery Bradley to Los Angeles in the corresponding move and opened up a much clearer path to playing time on the wing. As a result, Bullock nearly doubled his time on the court with 27.9 minutes per game compared to 15.1 a year prior. The added time on the court allowed Bullock to up his production across the board and he finished the year with averages of 11.3 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.4 assists. Most notably, however, was his work as a three-point threat, as Bullock knocked down 2.0 deep balls per game at a blistering 44.5 percent clip. Heading into the upcoming season, Bullock appears primed to reclaim his role in the top unit, though it's unclear if that will be alongside Stanley Johnson again, or if coach Dwane Casey will go with a guy like Luke Kennard or Glenn Robinson. He split last season between both shooting guard and small forward and will likely continue to play both positions depending on which of the aforementioned players is on the court as well. Bullock doesn't provide the coveted multi-category production that Fantasy owners look for, but his work beyond the arc should bring him into consideration as a three-point specialist in deeper leagues.

$Signed a one-year, $2.5 million contract with the Pistons in July of 2017. Pistons exercised $2.5 million team option for 2018-19 in July of 2018.
Has option picked up

Bullock had his team option picked up Monday by the Pistons, Rob Beard of the Detroit News reports.
Bullock is coming a season filled with career-highs, making Detroit's decision far from a surprise and the $2.5 million option look like a bargain. Last season was filled with improvement for the former first-round pick, most noticeably a 44.5 percent mark from three, which was second in the NBA, making him an ideal component in today's offenses focused on spacing and the long ball. The question mark will be his ability to stay healthy after topping 60 games for the first time in his career after never playing more than 43 since his rookie season in the 2012-2013 campaign.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Bullock's second year with the Pistons, and fourth season overall, was his best yet. He averaged a career-high 15.1 minutes per game, while boosting his averages of 3.3 points and 1.8 rebounds in 2015-16 to 4.5 and 2.1, respectively. He continued to shoot well from the field at 42.2 percent, while also showing a reliable three-point stroke once again at 38.4 percent from deep. His improvement was rewarded with a two-year, $5 million contract extension in the offseason. However, that doesn't necessarily mean Bullock's in for a much bigger role. The Pistons let Kentavious Caldwell-Pope go in free agency, but then traded for Avery Bradley, who should take on the bulk of the shooting guard minutes. The team also selected Luke Kennard in the first round of the 2017 NBA Draft, which could further complicate Bullock's path to playing time. While Bullock can play both spots on the wing, look for a similar or slightly smaller workload during the upcoming campaign, which should keep him off the radar in the majority of standard formats.
Drafted in the first round by the Clippers in 2013 as a prototypical 3-and-D wing, Bullock's career has yet to really get off the ground, as he's only appeared in 116 games over three seasons while averaging 10.0 minutes per contest. The Pistons acquired him from the Suns last summer and didn't really hand him many opportunities behind starting wings Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Marcus Morris, with Bullock finishing the campaign with just 37 appearances and averages of 3.3 points, 1.8 rebounds, 0.7 assists and 0.6 three-pointers in 11.6 minutes per game. If there's a silver lining, it's that Bullock made a bigger impact when top reserve Stanley Johnson was injured for seven games in the second half. During that pivotal stretch in late February and early March, Bullock helped the Pistons surge back into playoff positioning while playing 23.3 minutes per game and averaging 9.0 points on 55 percent shooting from the field. His role declined when Johnson returned, but with coach Stan Van Gundy stating in the offseason that he hopes to reduce the minutes loads for Caldwell-Pope and Morris, Bullock could see his playing time increase in 2016-17. It's probably not going to be significant enough for Bullock to produce lasting fantasy value, but he could make for a decent DFS target or short-term pickup if either Caldwell-Pope or Morris fall victim to an injury.
After spending the first two seasons of his career dealing with being injured or stuck at the bottom of the depth chart on the Clippers and then the Suns, Bullock was traded to the Pistons this summer as part of the Marcus Morris salry dump. It's almost not even worth reviewing Bullock's stats in the NBA over the last two seasons, because he barely played. Where he did get a little run was in the D-League. Through four games with the Bakersfield Jam last season, Bullock averaged 23.8 points, 3.0 three-pointers, 9.8 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.5 steals, and 1.3 blocks. Those numbers are not the best representation of what he'll become in the NBA, but they can help highlight some of the 6-7 guard/forward's best skills. He's a competent rebounder and wonderful shooter with great size for defending the wing positions. Though the Pistons seem to have their core wing rotation metered out between Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Marcus Morris, and Stanley Johnson, Bullock could edge his way into the conversation during training camp.
Entering his second NBA season, Bullock is unlikely to play a significant role in the Clippers' rotation out of the gate. If the opportunity arises, he has value as a potential three-point threat in the Clippers' potent offense. However, some serious breaks would have to go his way, or he would have to show massive improvement to force the coaching staff's hand to receive more than spot minutes. Expect to see him on the floor in garbage time or taking a stint in the D-League to get some run.
Bullock was drafted 25th overall in this summer's draft, but joins a Clippers team with strong wing depth, likely limiting his involvement during his rookie campaign. When he sees the floor, Bullock is a knock-down shooter and a decent rebounder for his position as well.
