News: A person with knowledge of the deal says Joel Anthony has agreed to a two-year, $5 million contract to stay with the Detroit Pistons. The person spoke on condition of anonymity Thursday because no announcement has been made.
Impact: The 6-foot-9 Anthony played 49 games last season for Detroit, averaging 1.8 points and 1.9 rebounds. He hasn't been a regular starter since the 2011-12 season. But Anthony, who turns 33 next month, can provide size off the bench for the Pistons.

News: Anthony has agreed two a two-year deal with the Pistons worth $5 million, Vincent Ellis of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Impact: Anthony's second year of the deal is reportedly non-guaranteed as he'll head to Detroit and provide depth to coach Stan Van Gundy's bench. The veteran will certainly play behind Andre Drummond and he'll likely be slotted behind Aron Baynes as well, which hardly leaves any time for Anthony to produce viable numbers under most formats.
