Back in July, there were rumors the Pistons were interested in former first round pick Terrence Williams. At the time, Vincent Goodwill of The Detroit News shot down those rumors. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! reported Thursday the Pistons have indeed signed Williams to a training camp contract, however:

Williams and Lawrence Frank are familiar with each other briefly from their New Jersey days — Frank was the Nets’ coach for the first 16 games of Williams’ rookie season.
Williams is still a long shot to make the roster. He plays Detroit’s deepest position, so if the roster stays as is, he’ll have to convince them to cut or trade someone else to make room for him.
