Pistons, Josh Harellson agree to two year deal

The Detroit Pistons signed center Josh Harrellson to a two year contract on Wednesday. The contract is worth the league minimum, and it also includes a team option for the second year.

Harrellson was a former second round pick of the 2011 NBA daft, chosen by the former New Orleans Hornets. However, the rights to the Kentucky center were traded to the New York Knicks on draft night.

Josh Harrellson is just another addition for the already stacked Detroit Pistons, who have made incredible moves this offseason to bolster the line up and try to contend for a playoff spot, or even a title. Aside from their newest acquisition, the Pistons were able to bring along players like Brandon Jennings, Josh Smith, Chauncey Billups, and Will Bynum just to name a few.

The last time Josh Harrellson saw any game time was actually last season, when he played in just six games with the two time NBA Champion Miami Heat.
