The Pistons have signed lottery pick Jaden Ivey to his rookie scale contract, the team tweets.
The Purdue point guard was chosen with the No. 5 overall pick. Ivey’s deal, assuming the usual 120% of the rookie scale, will be for four years and $32,951,083. His first-year salary, under those terms, will be $7,252,200.
Ivey is expected to jump right into Detroit’s rotation and pair up in the backcourt with last year’s No. 1 overall pick, Cade Cunningham.
Detroit is also acquiring No. 13 overall pick, center Jalen Duren, from a draft-night trade. However, it cannot officially sign Duren until that trade becomes official.

With this kind of money available in the NBA it’s no wonder there are so many “One and done” college players for those good enough to play in the NBA. Wow!
Wish he was in NY ……..
Jaden and Cade will make a serious backcourt. Both can play both positions. This is good talent. Hope it blends and mixes.
