At the trade deadline, the Detroit Pistons made a number of moves to shake up the roster for the future. Along with securing intriguing young talent, they also signed a slew of veterans.

Because the Pistons are at the bottom of the rankings, they chose to treat the veterans with respect. Multiple players received buyouts, allowing them to sign with more competitive teams. Shake Milton, Mike Muscala, Danilo Gallinari, and Danuel House are among others who have recently released new music.

Earlier this week, Pistons coach Monty Williams explained why the team decided to waive so many players. He indicated that the front staff made the decisions with the players’ best interests at heart.

“We felt like we wanted to do the right thing by players who weren’t playing,” Williams told ESPN. “Troy has always been about doing right by the player.”

After being bought out by Detroit, some of these players have signed with teams seeking to compete this season. Gallinari promptly signed with the Milwaukee Bucks, the Eastern Conference’s top-three team. Muscala ended up returning to the Oklahoma City Thunder, where he played from 2019 to 2023.

Milton was the latest Pistons player to get a new contract. He is now with the New York Knicks, who have been one of the hottest teams in basketball after several major transactions.

Waiving the veterans also benefits the Pistons in the long run. With them off the roster, they have greater opportunity to develop young players in the closing weeks of the season.
