Multiple sources are reporting that the Detroit Pistons have invited forward Ike Diogu to training camp. He'll be the 16th player on the team's roster. Diogu is a 6-foot-9 forward in his fourth NBA season. He sat out all of the 2009-10 season with a left knee injury.
The Pistons will be Diogu's fifth NBA team. He was drafted out of Arizona State by the Golden State Warriors in 2005. Two years later, he was traded to the Indiana Pacers, where he spent two seasons before being dealt to Portland. In less than one season, the Blazers traded him to Sacramento, where he played out the final year of his contract. Diogu signed last year with New Orleans, but aggravated a knee injury in training camp. He had microfracture surgery on that left knee last December.
For his career, Diogu has averaged 6.1 points and 3.1 rebounds per game. His best numbers were with the Kings, averaging 9.2 points and 3.9 rebounds in 10 games.
