Khris Middleton signs with Pistons, filling roster with Ben Wallace still semi-retired


Keith Langlois of

"Pistons sign Khris Middleton to bring the roster to 15 .. He’s in Auburn Hills and working out."

Khris Middleton’s signing doesn’t mean Ben Wallacewho, at last report, had a “good chance” of returning – won’t be a Piston next year, but this move makes it at least somewhat less likely.

Perhaps, though, Middleton’s contract is fully or partially unguaranteed. There’s also still plenty of time to move another player before Oct. 1. Just because the Pistons’ roster stands at 15 now doesn’t mean it’s stuck that way. (A reminder: A player sent to the D-League still counts against the roster-size limit.)
