10:59am: The Pistons have signed center Mamadou N’Diaye to a contract, the team announced via press release. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but it is almost assuredly a minimum salary deal with little or no guaranteed salary included.

The 7’6″ big man went undrafted this year after spending three season at UC Irvine. The 23-year-old averaged 12.1 points, 7.2 rebounds and 2.4 blocks during his junior campaign in 2015/16.

N’Diaye played in the Las Vegas Summer League as a member of Golden State’s squad. In three contests he went scoreless, averaging 1.7 rebounds and 0.3 blocks in 5.8 minutes per outing. N’Diaye attempted two shots, missing both of them.
