Pistons Picking Up Option On Eugene Omoruyi

The Pistons have exercised their $1.9MM option on Eugene Omoruyi, sources tell James L. Edwards of The Athletic. (Twitter link).

The 26-year-old small forward joined the team in early March on a pair of 10-day deals and earned a contract that extends through 2023/24.

Although the Pistons have reportedly picked up his option, it’s believed that Omoruyi’s salary for next season won’t immediately become fully guaranteed.

Omoruyi impressed team officials with the effort he shows when he’s on the court, Edwards adds. In 17 games with Detroit, he averaged 9.7 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 21.9 minutes per night.
