"Vyacheslav intends to sign a player contract with the Pistons when the moratorium period ends," Kravtsov’s representative, Jeff Schwartz, said Sunday night.
Kravtsov averaged 10.6 points and 5.5 rebounds in 22 minutes per game last season for BC Donetsk in the Ukranian league. Scouts regard him as an excellent athlete who plays above the rim and is primarily known for his defensive abilities as a rebounder and shot blocker.
I don’t know anything about Kravtsov other than what I’ve read, but I’m pleased the Pistons are interested. Even if he’s not a lock to belong in the NBA, 7-footers are hard to come by. Outside of drafting one in the top of the first round, teams must take chances to acquire quality bigs.
