Pistons Sign Lorenzo Brown To Second 10-Day

The Pistons have signed point guard Lorenzo Brown to a second 10-day contract, the team announced via press release. His initial 10-day pact expired overnight. The latest deal costs $55,722 and covers five games, against the Thunder, Mavericks, Bulls, Heat and Magic. Detroit is a game up in the loss column on Chicago for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

The first 10-day contract was essentially an insurance policy for the team, coach/executive Stan Van Gundy conceded, as Reggie Jackson nursed a virus and Spencer Dinwiddie dealt with a deep bone bruise in his ankle. Neither Jackson nor Dinwiddie currently appear on the CBSSports.com injury report, and fellow point guard Steve Blake is also healthy, but the Pistons are nonetheless keeping Brown in their 15th roster spot for the time being.

Brown has yet to appear in a game with Detroit. He averaged 2.5 points in 7.6 minutes per game across eight appearances on a pair of 10-day contracts with the Suns earlier this year. The 25-year-old who was the 52nd pick in the 2013 draft has spent most of the season with the Pistons D-League team. Detroit is plenty familiar with him not just from his D-League experience but also from his 2014 preseason stint on the Pistons NBA roster.

The Pistons will have an interesting decision to make in 10 days. It won’t cost them much to keep Brown through the end of the season if they still want him as insurance. But would they prefer the flexibility of an open roster spot like the Celtics are doing?

I feel like their are better Free Agent PG’s out there than Lorenzo Brown and Steve Blake.. If they wanna maybe somehow get to 6th/7th seed and possibly get out of 1st round I don’t think Brown helps.. Why not pick up a guy like Beno or Nate Robinson who actually have playoff experience to offer their young team???… I’m sure they aren’t demanding big bucks..
