The Pistons have expressed interest in retaining small forward Damien Wilkins, who will be an unrestricted free agent after the season, tweets FOX Sports' Chris Tomasson. According to Tomasson, who spoke to Wilkins with Detroit in town to face the Heat, the veteran has the following to say:
“They indicated they want me back but we’ll see what happens.’’ Wilkins added that he wants to resign with the Pistons “as long as they want me here.’’
Wilkins is a 32-year-old journeyman who is on his fourth different team in four years. He has only averaged 3.4 points-per-game in just under 16 minutes, but it appears as though that might have been enough for him to stick. Stay tuned.
