The Pistons have officially signed second-round pick Khris Middleton, the team announced today (Twitter link). Terms of the deal aren't known, but it's likely not worth much more than the rookie minimum this season, perhaps with additional non-guaranteed years. As Keith Langlois of Pistons.com notes (via Twitter), the signing brings the Pistons' roster to 15 players.

Middleton, a 6'8" forward, averaged 13.2 points and 5.0 rebounds per game in his junior year at Texas A&M before declaring for the draft a year early. Considered the 48th-best available prospect by ESPN.com's Chad Ford, the 21-year-old was selected 39th overall by the Pistons, and showed flashes of promise in Orlando Summer League action.
