After trading forwards Tayshaun Prince and Austin Daye in the deal that brought Jose Calderon over to the Pistons and then losing Calderon to the Dallas Mavericks in free agency, the Pistons have a big need on the wing right now. They drafted Kentavious Caldwell-Pope to be the answer at shooting guard moving forward, but the small forward position is pretty thin after Jonas Jerebko.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, the Pistons are reportedly filling out the wing with Italian shooter Luigi “Gigi” Datome on a two-year deal that will bring the 25-year old forward to the NBA.
