Pistons Plan to Sign Quincy Miller to 10-Day Contract

With a little bit of an opening at the small forward position following the departure of Kyle Singler, Luigi Datome, and Jonas Jerebko in two separate trades, MLive reports the Pistons intend to shore up their frontline by signing Quincy Miller to a 10-day contract.

Miller, who stands six-foot-ten, is currently playing for the Reno Bighorns, the Sacramento Kings’ D-League affiliate. He’s produced gaudy numbers at that level this season, scoring 25.3 points per game on 50.6 percent shooting from the field and 35.2% from deep.

Miller’s acquisition will aide in re-developing a sense of depth at the forward positions following today’s trades. As it currently stands, the depth chart at small forward includes Tayshaun Prince (acquired today via trade), Anthony Tolliver, and Cartier Martin, the last of whom has been hampered by injuries of late. Miller’s size should allow him to split time between the small forward and power forward positions.

Spending parts of three seasons in the NBA as a member of the Kings and Denver Nuggets, Miller is only 22 years old, having declared for the draft following his freshman year at Baylor. Miller was regarded as one of the best players in his graduating class coming out of high school, wowing many with his steady handles and smooth floor game for a player of his height.

The news of Miller’s impending signing rounds out a massive day of transactions for the Pistons. In addition to the re-acquisition of Prince from the Celtics (in exchange for Datome and Jerebko), Detroit pulled off a stunner earlier in the afternoon, sending guard D.J. Augustin and Kyle Singler to the Thunder for Reggie Jackson.
