MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Detroit Pistons have acquired veteran Ersan Ilyasova from the Milwaukee Bucks, adding a long-range shooter to their frontcourt.

Detroit sent forwards Caron Butler and Shawne Williams to Milwaukee in the trade announced Thursday.

Butler returns to the Bucks after signing as a free agent with Milwaukee in 2013, though Butler and Williams might be most valuable to Milwaukee for their expiring contracts.

Ilyasova is under contract through the 2016-17 season. He was the longest-tenured player on the Bucks with seven seasons in Milwaukee.
