Guard-Forward Damien Wilkins Signs With Detroit Pistons

The Detroit Pistons have announced that they've officially signed guard-forward Damien Wilkins on Friday. There's no news yet on the terms of the deal, as they have not been disclosed by the team. Wilkins is 31 years old, and most recently played for the Atlanta Hawks, appearing in 52 games last season, averaging 3.5 points and 1.7 rebounds, with exactly 13 minutes per game average. He averaged only 1.8 points, 1 rebound and 4.9 minutes in eight playoff appearances with the Hawks.

Wilkins, undrafted coming out of the University of Georgia, has played for Atlanta, Minnesota, Oklahoma City and Seattle, averaging 6.8 points a game, 2.6 rebouns and 1.5 assists over his 442 career games overall. He's played, through the course of his career, an average of 20 minutes per game. His best season is far behind him though, back in 2007-08 when he averaged 9.2 points a game with Seattle. He notched his 2,000th career point three years ago in 2008.
