The Detroit Pistons backcourt is finally settled with the NBA regular season rapidly approaching. According to Adrian Wojnarowski, guard Rodney Stuckey has agreed to a 3-year, $25 million deal that will keep the dynamic combo-guard in Pistons uniform for the near future.

Earlier reports had Stuckey holding out for about the same money per year but for a 5-year deal. Considering the current NBA market, this should be considered a solid compromise by both sides which comes after Detroit finally released veteran guard Richard Hamilton with a buy out allowing him to move on to the Central Division rival Chicago Bulls.
Stuckey will help add versatility to the Pistons back court which saw rookie Brandon Knight, Ben Gordon and Will Bynum play the bulk of the minutes in Friday night's preseason loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
