JULY 2, 9:54am: The Pistons will sign Viacheslav Kravtsov when the moratorium period ends, according to agent Jeff Schwartz (link via ESPN.com's Marc Stein). Pistons president Joe Dumars confirmed the agreement in a statement.

"We are engaged in negotiations with Viacheslav Kravtsov and will enter into a player contract when the moratorium period ends," Dumars said (Twitter link).
