The Detroit Pistons have signed forward Quincy Miller to a second 10-day contract, the team announced in a news release.
Pistons head coach and president Stan Van Gundy has said from the beginning that Miller has been seen as a developmental prospect so the second 10-day contract is no surprise. Neither would it be a surprise if he was eventually signed for the rest of the season after this 10-day pact expires.
Miller was originally signed by the Pistons on Feb. 21. In two games with the Pistons' D-League affiliate, the Grand Rapids Drive, Miller averaged 11.5 points, 9.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.0 blocks in 19.7 minutes per game.
In six games with the Sacramento Kings earlier in the year, the 6-foot-9 Miller averaged 2.8 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 10.2 minutes per game. Miller has also played 15 games with the D-League's Reno Big Horns where he averaged 25.3 points, 7.6 rebounds, 3.6 blocks, 1.9 assists and 1.6 steals in 28.9 minutes per game.
With the Pistons likely to be fighting for a playoff spot until the last days of the season, it is uncertain how much floor time Miller can expect with his new club. However, if Detroit's Grumpy Old Men (Tayshaun Prince in the role of Walter Matheau and Caron Butler in the role of Jack Lemmon), a spot in the rotation might just open up.
