The Detroit Pistons decided to not extend a qualifying offer to forward DaJuan Summers. Because he didn't receive an offer, Summers became an unrestricted free agent.
There is nowhere for him to sign in the NBA with the lockout currently going on, so Summers decided to pack up his things and head to Italy, signing a two-year deal with Montepaschi Siena, a team in Italy's Lega Basket Serie A.
Summers may not have been extended a qualifying offer, but the Pistons did tender offers to guard Rodney Stuckey and forward Jonas Jerebko. Both players are restricted free agents as a result, allowing the Pistons to match any offers that come their way. Jerebko is expected to re-sign whenever the lockout ends and that is possible, but Stuckey is a candidate to be traded.
Guard Terrico White could also become a free agent for the Pistons, but as of last week the team had not decided if his option will be picked up.
