The Pistons will sign second-round pick Saben Lee to a two-way contract, James Edwards III of The Athletic tweets.
Detroit acquired the No. 38 overall pick in a draft-night trade and selected Lee, a junior guard out of Vanderbilt who averaged 18.6 PPG. 3.5 RPG and 4.2 APG last season. The Pistons’ front office had graded Lee as a first-round prospect, according to Edwards.
The Pistons didn’t have a second-rounder entering the draft but acquired the 38th pick, along with center Tony Bradley, from the Jazz for future considerations and cash.
Teams frequently make bargains with agents of second-round prospects to take their clients if they’ll agree to a two-way deal. However, Lee could compete for minutes on a rebuilding team.
