Pistons Prepare For Summer League

The Pistons have announced that the following players will join them for Summer League play: Will Bynum, Walter Sharpe, Trent Plaisted, Deron Washington, Austin Daye, DaJuan Summers, Jonas Jerebko, Matt Freije, Dwayne Jones, Ibrahim Jabber and Clay Tucker.

Daye, Summers and Jerebko were selections in last week's NBA Draft, while Sharpe, Plaisted and Washington were '08 Pistons second-rounders. Apparently Freije may be looking at other options since he plays the same position as all three rookie forwards. Jabber played for the Pistons' Summer League team two years ago, backing up Rodney Stuckey at the point.

Michael Curry, Pistons Head Coach, will run the team's practices, but he'll have assistants Darrell Walker and Pat Sullivan coaching the games. An official Summer League schedule and roster will likely be announced later this month.
