It had been rumored for a week or so, but tonight it became official. Josh Harrellson has signed with the Detroit Pistons. According to a report on Yahoo! Sports, the Pistons have reached a contract agreement with Harrellson who becomes the squad’s 15th man.
Early this year Jorts played with Brujos de Guayama in Puerto Rico, but was released on May 18. He then joined Chongqing Fly Dragon in the Chinese National Basketball League for two months before finding his new home in Detroit.
According to the report, Harrellson could see some playing time behind big man Andre Drummond, Greg Monroe and Josh Smith, filling the role-player spot left by the trade of Slava Kravtsov. His deal with Detroit is a partial-guarantee for two years, with a team option on second season.
Best of luck to Jorts up north as a Piston!
