The Detroit Pistons will look to bolster their roster by any means available to them this offseason, including the draft, trades and free agency.

The Pistons will have the cap space to pursue just about any free agent on the market, but their most pressing need is for more impact talent at the wing position.

Not only will they look for a starting caliber player in free agency, but they will also need to improve the bench.

Detroit needs more players who can spread the floor, and there might be a low-cost option on the market soon.

Detroit Pistons: Free agent Donte DiVincenzo

According to Michael Scotto of HoopsHype, Donte DiVincenzo is likely to decline his player option for next season, which would make him an unrestricted free agent.

"“Within Golden State and among rival NBA executives, there’s a belief Donte DiVincenzo will decline his $4.7 million player option and will likely be too expensive for the Warriors to re-sign once he hits unrestricted free agency.”"

DiVincenzo is coming off the best season of his career in terms of 3-point shooting and games played, as he suited up 72 times for the Warriors this past season while shooting just under 40 percent from long range.

The Pistons may be able to steal him away from Golden State without breaking the bank and he’d potentially add another high-end 3-point shooter to the bench and possibly even replace Alec Burks if Detroit decided to move him in a trade.

DiVincenzo is also a crafty, underrated defender who is also coming off a career-high 1.3 steals in 26 minutes per game for the Warriors. He’s not just a standstill shooter, as he can make plays off the bounce.

He’s just entering his prime and the Detroit Pistons could potentially get him for $7 or 8 million per year, which could be a bargain.

DiVincenzo hit some big shots for the Warriors this season and got some experience in the playoffs, so he’s the type of younger veteran the Pistons could target when filling out their bench.
