The Detroit Pistons are among the teams that are looking for ways to improve this offseason. They missed the playoffs last season, as they finished 10th in the Eastern Conference standings with a 37-45 record. The year before, the Pistons did make it to the playoffs but they got swept by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the first round. Having said all of this, it's obvious that the things aren't shaping up the way the Pistons fans and front office would like it to.

Earlier this summer, they made a trade that sent Marcus Morris to the Celtics in exchange for Avery Bradley. Maybe this is the first step that could hep Detroit make a deep playoff run next season.

Reggie Bullock stays in Detroit

On Monday, Shams Charania of The Vertical reported that the Detroit Pistons have re-signed Reggie Bullock to a two-year deal. Reportedly, the deal is worth around $5 million.

Bullock entered the league in 2013, as he was the 25th overall pick, drafted by the Los Angeles Clippers. He spent the first two seasons of his career with the Clippers and the Phoenix Suns, and for the past two seasons, he has played for the Detroit Pistons. The 2016/2017 season was the best of his career, as he averaged 4.5 points and 2.1 rebounds per game with the Pistons. He played an average of 15 minutes per game and shot 38% from the three-point line.

The 6-foot-7 small forward from Baltimore solidified himself last season as a reliable three-point shooter and a solid defender. He was a free-agent this summer and the Pistons decided to keep him for at least two more seasons by re-signing him.

The league announced earlier this offseason that Bullock violated the NBA's anti-drug policy, and he will have to serve a five-game suspension when the season starts. Bullock will most likely continue to come off the bench for Detroit next season.

San Antonio signs Lauvergne

Michael C. Wright of ESPN reported on Tuesday that the San Antonio Spurs have signed a two-year deal with Joffrey Lauvergne. It is still unknown how much will the deal be worth, as the Spurs continue to upgrade their roster this summer.

They've already acquired free-agent Rudy Gay, and they are reportedly working on a deal to keep Pau Gasol. The Vertical was the first to report the news about Lauvergne's signing with the Spurs.

Lauvergne was a free-agent this summer, after playing for the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Chicago Bulls last season.

He is a 6-foot-11 center and holds career averages of 6.1 points and 4.0 rebounds per game. He improved his three-point shooting last season as he connected on 32% of his shots behind the arc during the 2016/2017 campaign.
