Pistons release training camp roster

The Pistons announced their training camp roster today, and there are no surprises. Chucky Atkins and Maceo Baston are in on non-guaranteed contract, and it’s highly unlikely either makes the team.

From a team release:

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. – Detroit Pistons President of Basketball Operations Joe Dumars announced the club’s training camp roster today.  In a related move, he announced the signing of guard Chucky Atkins and forward Maceo Baston to contracts.  Per team policy, terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

Atkins, 35, who spent four seasons with Detroit (2000-2004), returns to the Pistons after averaging 3.1 points, 0.8 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 12.9 minutes with Denver last season.  He played in just 32 games for the Nuggets, the second-fewest of his career.  In 265 games with the Pistons, the 5-foot-11 guard averaged 10.0 points and 3.5 assists.

Baston, 33, appeared in 27 games with the Indiana Pacers last season averaging 2.5 points and 1.9 rebounds in 8.0 minutes per game.  He scored a season-high 12 points in a Pacers win over Miami (1/30) and had seven rebounds, an assist and two steals in a season-high 19 minutes.  At Minnesota, (2/20), Baston tallied eight points, a season-high eight rebounds and a career-best three assists in 16 minutes.
