Pistons Sign Recent Three-Point Contest Participant

Free agent guard Malik Beasley is set to join the Pistons on a one-year, $6M deal, as reported by Shams Charania.

Beasley, who played for the Bucks last season, has a career average of 10.9 points and is known for his three-point shooting skills. He hit 38.5% from beyond the arc in 496 games and started in 77 out of 79 games last year, making an impressive 41.3% of his threes.

The Pistons showed interest in Beasley because they struggled with three-pointers last season, ranking near the bottom in both made threes and percentage.

Detroit’s New Additions:

Now, Beasley will team up with Tobias Harris and Tim Hardaway Jr., both known for their three-point shooting abilities. This move aligns with Detroit’s strategy to improve their spacing on the floor for young star Cade Cunningham. They also brought in assistant coach Fred Vinson, who specializes in working with shooters from long range.

Fans might think this could be exactly what Detroit needs to turn things around.

Last year, Beasley was on a minimum contract with Milwaukee but still managed to participate in the NBA’s Three-Point Contest. Now he’s moving to Detroit’s cap space after proving his worth.
