Pistons confirm they have signed Josh Harrellson to two-year deal

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) — The Detroit Pistons signed center Josh Harrellson to two-year contract for the league minimum with the team holding an option for the second season Wednesday.

Harrellson played sparingly in six games last season for the Miami Heat.

The 6-foot-10, 275-pound Harrellson was drafted by New Orleans out of Kentucky in the second round in 2011, then traded that night to the New York Knicks. Harrellson averaged 4.4 points and 3.9 rebounds in 14.6 minutes as a rookie and played in four playoff games during the 2012 playoffs with the Knicks.

    Congrats to Josh! His development at U.K. was remarkable.
    He certainly earned everything that he has worked for.

    A product of Calipari development… recovered from the Clyde years. Harrelson worked hard and was vital to our return to the FF after a UK (sad)-record drought.

    Remember his gallant effort when we beat Ohio State !

    Jorts certainly fits the blue collar reputation that Detroit used to have during its glory days. I was hoping that he would pick up a contract with his recent stellar play in China. Congratulations, Josh!

    Way to go Jorts! He could end up having a long and productive NBA career. I bet he’s glad he posted that stuff on Twitter now. :)

    Happy for Josh. I wonder if he knows cutoffs are passe now? LOL I think the game that stands out for me is when he crushed that ‘other’ school!
