The Detroit Pistons and free agent Jon Leuer have agreed to a four-year, $42 million deal, reports Marc Stein of ESPN.

The deal is the first big payday for the 27-year-old out of Wisconsin, whose previously deal was worth $2.9 million over three seasons.

Leuer had his best season in the NBA with the Phoenix Suns in 2015–16, averaging 8.5 points and 5.6 rebounds in 18.7 minutes per game.

The big man was drafted by the Milwaukee Bucks in the first round of the 2011 draft, and has also played for the Cleveland Cavaliers and Memphis Grizzlies.
