BREAKING: Detroit Pistons sign former Michigan State standout

According to reports, the Detroit Pistons have signed a point guard.

James Edwards III is reporting the Pistons have signed former Michigan State standout Kalin Lucas to a two-way deal. In a corresponding move, they have cut Zach Loften.

During his senior season with the Spartans, Lucas averaged 17 points and 3.4 assists per game.

His only NBA experience came during the 2014-2015 season when he played in one game for the Sacramento Kings, recording one steal.

This was the second player the Pistons signed to a two-way deal on Tuesday as they did the same with Isaiah Whitehead earlier in the day.

Detroit Lions’ Fans: Chill out, the best OC candidate is still available

When news broke that Jim Bob Cooter would not be returning to the Detroit Lions in 2019, head coach Matt Patricia was immediately charged with what will be the most important move the team will need to make this offseason. Hiring a new offensive coordinator.

Within hours (maybe even sooner) of the news Cooter was not coming back, the speculation began as to who would be the best choice to replace him. There were reports Adam Gase was going to be fired by the Miami Dolphins (which he eventually was) and that he would be a top target for the Lions. Well, that may or may not have been the case, but Gase decided to take the head coaching job with the New York Jets.

Other possible candidates included Kliff Kingsbury (HC Arizona), Freddie Kitchens (HC Cleveland), Todd Monken (OC Cleveland), Nathanial Hackett (OC Green Bay), and Steve Sarkisian (OC Alabama).

As the announcements came that those coaches had taken other jobs, coupled with the Lions being silent about the matter, something predictable happened.
