Report: Pistons Sign Isaiah Whitehead, Kalin Lucas, to Two-Way Deals

The Detroit Pistons made a switch-up of their two-way contracts. Letting Zach Lofton and Keenan Evans go, they signed Isaiah Whitehead and former Michigan State standout Kalin Lucas yesterday.

Evans and Lofton are able to remain with the Drive, but simply not on two-way contracts. Whether or not they will do that will be seen.

Moving on from Evans is not a huge shock, he has been effective but hasn’t really stood out that much. Whitehead has consistently been one of the G League’s top performers and has some NBA experience with the Nets.

Moving on from Zach Lofton is a bit of a surprise. Lofton has had injury issues this season including a concussion that held him out for an extended period of time, but the Pistons spoke very highly of him and he even received a little playing time early in the season.

It is possible that the moves back up the claims that the Pistons are desperately trying to make a trade. Whitehead is more proven and ready for NBA minutes now if the Pistons find themselves a point-guard short from a trade.
