Default Pistons Sign Josh Harrellson

It looks like we signed our last player, and it was a big guy.

Quote:
The Detroit Pistons have reached an agreement with forward Josh Harrellson on a two-year deal, a league source told Yahoo! Sports. Harrellson, 24, will hold a partial salary guarantee for the 2013-14 season, and the Pistons will hold the team option for the 2014-15 season, a source said. Yahoo

At least they went young, which is what I wanted them to do. I don't expect Harrellson to see much playing time at all anyhow. It would be nice to know how much they paid him. I bet it isn't much of an investment.

Article for those that want it. MVP OF THE CBA!!! Well, I can't say I've ever heard of the guy but hey...MVP is MVP yea?

Seeing as how Jason Collins wouldn't have costed much money besides the vet minimum, I don't see why we didn't sign him. He could've gave helpful pointers on savvy vet moves.

Ah well, LET'S GET THIS YEAR ROLLING!!!! MONROE W/ THEM 6 ASSISTS A GAME MINIMUM!!!

MOTOR LOB CITY!!!!!!!!!

Good move. As long as we added one more big body, 6'10+, I was going to be happy. Collins,Harrelson,Whiteside, its all the same to me. None are particularly good,but all fill the role.

I didn't realize he was the MVP over in China. I guess this is the move to put the Pistons in contention . I'm glad it wasn't Collins. I feel like his career is done. Not that Harrellson will be a good NBA player, but I'd rather go with the younger guy. We have Sheed to give the big guys advice. We don't necessarily need another vet to try to do the same.

I love that style of basketball. While it doesn't translate to ESPN, I find it fun to watch on television. We do have a tough roster this season too (at least on paper). I'm ready for the season to start already!

Nice pick-up. He played well for the Knicks two seasons ago and has a pretty wide array of skills. He's actually got a nice jump-shot with range all the way to 3pt land. I think he'll surprise people if there are a few injuries and he gets pt.

He brings a toughness / grit / blue collar approach which fits in with the culture we are trying to rebuild here. I am happy with having guys at the end of the bench with this attitude - good pick-up, might give us some flexibility of we decide to move Charlie-V as Josh can play the stretch tall position too...

From what I've seen of Charlie V over the past couple of seasons, Harrellson is better.

My left nut struggles from the charity stripe but is still better than Charlie-V...
