Dewayne Dedmon Waived By Pistons, Becomes Free Agent

On Friday, the Detroit Pistons acquired Dewayne Dedmon in a trade with the Atlanta Hawks. According to Vincent Goodwill of Yahoo Sports, the Pistons will now waive and stretch Dewayne Dedmon, making him a free agent.

The remaining $13.3 million of Dedmon’s contract will be dead money on the Pistons’ books, spread out over multiple years.

Dedmon, 31, should have several suitors on the open market as a free agent. A true 7-footer who can space the floor, Dedmon averaged 5.8 points and 5.7 rebounds per contest.
