According to reports, the Detroit Pistons and point guard Isaiah Whitehead have agreed to a two-way contract.
Sources @TheAthleticNBA @WatchStadium: Guard Isaiah Whitehead has agreed to a two-way NBA contract with the Detroit Pistons. Whitehead was Brooklyn’s second-round pick in 2016 and had played overseas this season.

Whitehead was originally selected in the second round of the 2016 NBA Draft by the Brooklyn Nets. In 89 career NBA games, he has averaged 7.2 points and 2.4 assists in 20.5 in 20.5 minutes per game.
With the Isaiah Whitehead signing, the #Pistons would need to release one of their other two-way signees (Keenan Evans or Zach Lofton).

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.
Many Lions’ fans began to panic.
Those fans started to post messages on social media saying the best candidates were just passing the Lions by and that Patricia and general manager Bob Quinn was going to have to settle for the last pick, which, of course, would end up being a failure.
Well, I have something to say about that…
CHILL OUT! THE BEST OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR CANDIDATE IS STILL AVAILABLE!!!
