Damn, GRIII has done a lot better financially than I expected when he declared for the draft (and once he was drafted).  Good for him, he's made some solid bank in the league.

Good deal for both parties. Pistons needed a 3&D wing and that’s what they’ll get. Low risk contract for Pistons and solid chance for playing time for GRIII. Win-Win

It looks like Nik Stauskas will sign with Portland. Per 24/7....

"it appears that Stauskas is headed to the West Coast after signing a one-year deal with the Portland Trailblazers. The contract is for the league-minimum salary, which, according to NBCSN analyst Peter Socotch, is expected to be worth $1.6 million next season."

"The Nets opted against tendering Stauskas a qualifying offer, which would've made him a restricted free agent for the Nets. Instead, he became an unrestricted free agent."

Good to see he is still in the league but his career hasn't gone as well as hoped considering he was a top 10 pick.

Great news.  I do wonder what this means for Stanley Johnson, since he's underwhelmed thus far and seems to be the odd man out.
