The Detroit Pistons have made the last changes to their roster in a move that seemed expected given how the preseason went.
Zach Lofton, who the Pistons had originally signed to just a training camp deal, was converted into a two-way deal for the Pistons. To accommodate this, the Pistons cut Reggie Hearn, who had previously been signed to a two-way deal.
Update: The #Pistons have exercised its two-way player conversion option on guard Zach Lofton.
Guard Reggie Hearn has been waived.

Lofton had an impressive preseason, shooting over 40% from deep, to earn the deal after going undrafted. Hearn played his college ball at New Mexico state after several stops in his college career. As a result of a long-winding college career, he is 25 despite being a rookie.
Lofton will join Kennan Evans on two-way deals for the Pistons meaning that both players will be free to move back and forth between the Pistons roster and the Grand Rapids Drive of the G-League.
The move shows a change of thought-process about two-way deals from Stan Van Gundy. Despite guard being the strongest spot on the current roster, the Pistons opted to sign a pair of young players for their upside and potential for the future.
