The Pistons have exercised their team option on Reggie Bullock.

It was a no-brainer for Detroit with Bullock slated to earn $2.5 million. Bullock averaged career-highs in points (11.3), rebounds (2.5), assists (1.5) and treys (2.0) last season, but things are more complicated this year with the Pistons adding Glenn Robinson III, Khyri Thomas and Bruce Brown on the wings.

Rodney Stuckey will host a private workout in Las Vegas on Thursday.

Several NBA teams will be in attendance as Stuckey attempts a comeback. The 32-year-old combo guard last played for the Pacers in 2016-17, averaging 7.2 points, 2.2 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 0.5 triples.
Jul 12 - 12:57 PM

Bruce Brown provided a rare highlight for the Pistons' Summer League team on Wednesday, scoring 15 points with 11 rebounds, six assists, five steals and one block.

Brown did his damage in 32 minutes and it's safe to say that he's past the foot injury that hampered him last season. Detroit committed to the second-round pick on a multi-year deal -- he's likely to spend most of his rookie season in the G League with Stanley Johnson, Glenn Robinson III and Luke Kennard blocking his path to playing time.
Jul 11 - 11:01 PM

Henry Ellenson put up 13 points, 10 rebounds, seven assists, one 3-pointer and two steals over 26 minutes in Monday's Summer League win over New Orleans.

Unfortunately, Ellenson also committed six turnovers and shot just 5-of-12 from the field, so it wasn't all good news for the 21-year-old forward. As long as Andre Drummond, Blake Griffin and Jon Leuer are healthy, it'll be tough for Ellenson to make an impact in fantasy hoops.
Jul 9 - 4:56 PM

Larry Drew II was forced out of Monday's exhibition against the Pelicans due to back spasms.

Drew will end his evening with nine points, one rebound, two assists, one 3-pointer and one block over 15 minutes. He should be able to get back out there for Detroit's next Summer League game, but there's really no way he'll be on the Pistons' regular-season roster this season.
Jul 9 - 4:33 PM

The Pistons waived C Eric Moreland on Sunday.

Zaza Pachulia just agreed to a one-year deal as Andre Drummond's backup, and the Pistons quickly saved some money and cleared a roster spot by waiving Moreland. He's a dubious fantasy asset no matter where he lands.
Jul 8 - 8:10 PM

Zaza Pachulia has agreed to a one-year, $2.4 million deal with the Detroit Pistons.

It was reported after the Finals ended that it would be a "sure thing" that Golden State would move on from Pachulia, now this has proven to be true. Zaza will fall back into a bench role backing up Andre Drummond in Detroit.
Jul 8 - 1:10 PM

Henry Ellenson made 5-of-21 from the field for 15 points with seven rebounds, three assists, seven turnovers, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes against the Grizzlies.

He attempted 10 shots from deep, so the Pistons were not kidding about him having a bright green light. It would be nice if Ellenson could actually hit shots and wasn't so sloppy at times with 31 possessions used today. Plus, it doesn't help that he's struggled to get clean looks around the basket. As long as he's active, he'll be a very strong bet to be among the leaders in field goal attempts. He hasn't helped himself for the regular season yet, though.
Jul 7 - 10:59 PM

Bruce Brown scored 12 points with seven rebounds, two assists, one turnover and one 3-pointer against the Grizzlies on Saturday.

The strength is on display and he had a strong dunk on a drive down the lane. The Pistons aren't necessarily committed to too many wings right now and Stanley Johnson still hasn't got it together yet. Still, the No. 42 pick is likely to start his career in the G League.
Jul 7 - 10:56 PM

The Pistons have signed Bruce Brown to a multi-year contract.

Detroit selected Brown with the 42nd overall pick in the 2018 draft. He averaged 11.4 points, 7.1 boards, 4.0 assists, 1.3 steals, 0.8 blocks and 0.8 treys as a sophomore. Brown did miss two months of the season due to a foot injury, but said in June that he is now 100 percent healthy. Still, it's very unlikely he makes a fantasy impact in 2018-19.
Jul 7 - 12:58 PM

Henry Ellenson scored 16 points with five rebounds, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes against the Bucks on Friday.

He was scoreless in the first half with the Pistons having the worst offense so far in Vegas. Ellenson has a green light as a shooter, and it'll get even greener with Luke Kennard out for this event. Considering Anthony Tolliver is gone, the Pistons are really hoping Ellenson can make the rotation.
Jul 6 - 9:08 PM

The Pistons will waive Dwight Buycks.

He had a roster guarantee coming up, so the Pistons decided to free up some space and save some money. He was at times better than the other Pistons point guards, but Buycks struggled with consistency. He'll get a camp invite unless he wants to go overseas.
Jul 5 - 9:26 PM

Henry Ellenson has the green light to shoot at summer league, and he's expected to play both power forward and center.

He has not done much in his first two seasons, but now the Pistons have put a little extra pressure on him with Anthony Tolliver headed to Minnesota. Ellenson should have enough experience to make an impact in Vegas.
Jul 5 - 8:02 PM

Andre Drummond said he's been doing yoga.

He kept it a secret for a while and said he started taking the yoga seriously two summers ago. The Pistons hired Dan Gottlieb, and he's been working with Drummond since January 2017. The yoga seemed to have worked last year with Drummond putting up career-high numbers in several categories, earning an All-Star nod in the process. He'll likely be coming off the board in the second round of drafts even with his free throw woes.
Jul 4 - 4:05 PM

Luke Kennard suffered a knee strain during Monday's practice and will no longer participate in Summer League play.

This is a bummer for Pistons fans hoping to watch last year's lottery pick, but this shouldn't have much of an impact on Kennard as he prepares for 2018-19. Yet, there will be pressure on him to improve next season, especially considering he is the player Detroit picked right before the Jazz selected Donovan Mitchell.
