Pistons Sign Free Agent Josh Smith

The Detroit Pistons have agreed on a four-year, $56 million contract with free-agent forward Josh Smith.

Smith had also considered the Rockets and Hawks.

The Pistons intended to make a splash in free agency and targeted Smith from the first moments of free agency this week.

Smith looked at several other options in free agency, as did the Pistons before coming to terms.

As of now, the Pistons are not involved in a sign-and-trade with the Atlanta Hawks, whom Smith is leaving after nine seasons, sources said.

Smith averaged 17.5 points, 8.4 rebounds and 3.8 assists for the Hawks last season
