AUBURN HILLS, MI (WTVB) - The Detroit Pistons push to add a third center appears to have been taken care of with the reported signing of 8-year veteran Aaron Gray, who would back up Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe. The no sign-no comment period on free agents from other teams remains in place until Thursday.
Sources say the 7-foot, 270-pound Gray and Detroit have reached agreement on a 2-year deal. Gray has played with 4 teams, including 37 games last year with Toronto and Sacramento.
The Pistons announced yesterday the hiring of Brian Wright as assistant general manager. Wright spent 8 seasons in scouting and player development with Orlando, including time working with ex-Magic coach and new Detroit head coach and president of basketball operations Stan Van Gundy.
