The Detroit Pistons have struck a verbal agreement to sign Ukranian center Vyacheslav Kravtsov to a multiyear deal, according to his agent. "Vyacheslav intends to sign a player contract with the Pistons when the moratorium period ends," Kravtsov's representative, Jeff Schwartz, said Sunday night.
Kravtsov averaged 10.6 points and 5.5 rebounds in 22 minutes per game last season for BC Donetsk in the Ukranian league. Scouts regard him as an excellent athlete who plays above the rim and is primarily known for his defensive abilities as a rebounder and shot blocker. ESPN.com
I don't know much about him but I guess it gives Detroit another big. I'm sure it's a small contract and he's about 7' so it's worth a gamble to see if he can develop into anything. It would seem like Detroit is pretty close to a full roster at this point. I just get this feeling Joe D is planning on some kind of trade.
