Detroit Pistons free agent options: Bryn Forbes – Unrestricted 

Bryn Forbes is a 6-foot-2 guard with elite shooting touch. The twenty eight year old is currently averaging 9.5 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.1 assists off the bench for the Nuggets.

The Michigan State standout and Lansing product has spent most of his career with the San Antonio Spurs. Under head coach Greg Popovich he became a marksman from the three point line. He’s now a seasoned veteran who boasts a career 3-point shooting percentage of 41.5 percent. He honed his talents last season when he helped the Milwaukee Bucks win their second NBA championship.

He’s been coached by two of the best coaches in the world in Tom Izzo and Gregg Popovich and Forbes benefited from those coaches greatly. He was learning winning basketball and how to be a true professional. Bryn will easily fit into any system and be effective in it.

He’s not the type of player who’ll have to start but can if needed. His shot alone makes him a viable asset next to Cade Cunningham.  The Pistons’ main priority should be surrounding Cade with spacing and guys who fit with the young core.

Forbes can be a locker room presence and a scoring threat. If he’s off the bench that’s quality firedpower and depth for any franchise. Not to mention he’ll be a good glue guy with his high basketball IQ and knowledge of the game.

He’s getting paid around 4.5 million dollars in 2022. This is not a lot considered the shooting he provides his teams. Remember, he was starting for the Bucks last season at times, leading to his first championship.

The Detroit Pistons should look to give him a two year deal if they go in his direction. Something similar to the one they provided Hamidou Diallo last year. Either off the bench or in the starting lineup this player would provide high value on a small contract.
