Kevin Knox, previously a forward for the Trail Blazers, has now committed to a one-year agreement with the Detroit Pistons, as reported by Shams Charania of The Athletic.
The specific terms of Knox’s agreement with the Pistons are still undisclosed. In 2022, he had signed a two-year, $6 million contract with the Pistons, featuring in 42 games for them before being traded to the Trail Blazers in a four-team deal that sent James Wiseman to Detroit.
Throughout the 2022/23 season, Knox played in a total of 63 games for both the Pistons and the Blazers, averaging 6.6 points and 2.8 rebounds in 15.1 minutes per game.
However, in June, Portland declined his $3 million team option for the 2023/24 season. The Blazers subsequently re-signed him on a non-guaranteed contract, but Knox did not make the regular season roster and instead joined the Rip City Remix, Portland’s G League affiliate, for training camp.
Now, he is set to occupy the 15th spot on the Pistons’ roster, offering depth to a team that has been dealing with multiple injuries this autumn.
Key players such as Bojan Bogdanovic, Alec Burks, Joe Harris, Jaden Ivey, Isaiah Livers, and Monte Morris are currently sidelined, with Jalen Duren experiencing on-and-off appearances due to an ankle issue.
