Pistons Claim Udrih Off Waivers, Waive McCallum

5:50pm: Detroit has confirmed the moves via press release.

4:37pm: The Pistons have waived Ray McCallum to clear a roster spot for Udrih, Vincent Ellis of The Detroit Free Press reports (on Twitter).

4:17pm: The Pistons, who are in need of backcourt depth, have taken to the waiver wire to help fill that need, with the team claiming Beno Udrih off waivers from the Heat, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports (on Twitter). Detroit is now responsible for the veteran’s cap hit of $980,431 as a result of the claim, which gets Miami off the hook for that amount. With Udrih earning the veteran’s minimum this season, Detroit did not need to use an exception to add him to the team. Udrih’s actual salary for 2016/17 is approximately $1.5MM.

Udrih played 36 games with Miami last season before agreeing to a buyout in February to help the team avoid the luxury tax, which certainly gained him some fans within the organization. In those 36 games for the Heat last season, Udrih averaged 4.4 points, 1.8 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 16.3 minutes per outing. He shot .434/.333/.882 from the field.

With starter Reggie Jackson likely sidelined until mid-November due to injury, Udrih will see minutes off the bench for Detroit.

  1. Any idea what number Beno will wear?

    • Eddie Scarito

      Official team roster has him currently listed as #9. Not sure if that’s final…but it’s the latest info I can relay.

      • Thanks Eddie. They previously had Gbinije at #9. Has his number changed on the official team roster you have?

        • Eddie Scarito

          Actually…they must have changed things since I responded to your comment. Gbinjie has #9 and Udrih is now blank. So….TBD on both I suppose.

          • My guess is he’ll go with #19. He’s worn that for most of his career and currently no one on the Pistons owns it.
