Pistons Re-Sign Louis King To Two-Way Contract

The Pistons have re-signed free agent forward Louis King to a new two-way contract, according to Keith Smith of Yahoo Sports (Twitter link).

King, who went undrafted out of Oregon in 2019, spent his rookie season on a two-way deal with Detroit. He didn’t see much action at the NBA level, logging limited minutes in 10 games, but averaged 15.0 PPG, 5.4 RPG, and 2.8 APG in 31 games (28.5 MPG) for the Grand Rapids Drive, the Pistons’ G League affiliate.

King will occupy one of Detroit’s two-way contract slots alongside second-round pick Saben Lee.

The Pistons also officially finalized their previouslyreported training camp deals with LiAngelo Ball and Anthony Lamb, according to Smith (Twitter link). The three signings give Detroit a full 20-man training camp roster.

    I wonder what the Pistons’ plans are for Jaylen Hands? I assumed he’d have been their other 2-Way to go along with Lee. I can understand not wanting two PGs on 2-Way deals, but what are they going to do with him?
    Do draft rights to a player ever expire? Or is Hands only path into the league through the Pistons?

      The Pistons will hold his rights indefinitely (barring a trade) until he signs with them or they renounce those rights.
