Pistons working to sign Quincy Miller for rest of season

Thursday March 12th, 2015

The Detroit Pistons will keep forward Quincy Miller throughout the remainder of the season. The Pistons are working on a non-guaranteed contract with Miller and his agent which would allow the forward to participate in summer league and then training camp, according to the Associated Press

Pistons head coach Stan Van Gundy announced the team was working on a deal prior to Wednesday’s game against Golden State. 

Van Gundy said Miller is “a guy with size and length and athletic ability and can shoot the ball, so he's somebody who we want to see. It's not a huge investment for us. He's a guy who has great potential to develop.”

Miller, 22, averaged 2.8 points and 2.0 rebounds in six games with the Kings earlier this season.

On February 21, Miller signed his first 10-day contract with the Pistons. He then went to play for the Grand Rapids Drive in the D-League, before being recalled earlier this month and signing his second 10-day contract with the team. 

Miller was a second-round pick by the Nuggets in 2012 out of Baylor and played the first two seasons of his career in Denver.
