The Detroit Pistons have re-signed restricted free agent point guard Reggie Jackson to what sources told ESPN.com is a five-year, $80 million contract.

The contract has no options for either team or player, the sources said.

Jackson was the center of intense trade talks at the deadline before the Oklahoma City Thunder shipped him to the Pistons in a three-team deal involving the Utah Jazz. The Thunder also were in serious discussions with the Brooklyn Nets for Jackson.

Detroit, after losing Brandon Jennings to a season-ending Achilles injury, turned to Jackson and are investing in him as their starter of the future. The Boston College product averaged 17.6 points, 9.2 assists and 4.7 rebounds in 27 games with the Pistons.
