Dwight Buycks reaches agreement with Detroit Pistons

Dwight Buycks, a 28-year old free agent point guard, has reached an agreement with the Detroit Pistons, according to Michael Scotto of Basketball Insiders. League sources have told Chris Reichert of that the deal will be a two-way contract, joining Derek Willis.

Buycks played with the Dallas Mavericks earlier this year in the Orlando Summer League, where the Pistons staff got a good look at the talented guard. Undrafted out of Marquette University in 2011, Buycks has played in the NBA with the Toronto Raptors and Los Angeles Lakers and in the NBA G League, as well as internationally in China.

In 20 career NBA games, Buycks averaged 4.8 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.2 assists. His shooting numbers were 37.5% FG, 42.9% FG3% and 89.5 FT%.

 He’ll look to fill the third point guard during training camp behind Reggie Jackson and Ish Smith.

With the Raptors’ recent signing of Lorenzo Brown to his own two-way contract, Buycks will also have a shot at playing for the Piston’s G League affiliate, the Grand Rapids Drive, if he misses out at making the parent club’s roster.
