The Pistons have reportedly agreed to terms with free agent forwards Tayshaun Prince and Jonas Jerebko. They have also waived reserve guard Terrico White.

Prince will sign a four-year contract worth $27 million, while Jerebko's deal is also four years at $16 million. White, a combo guard, missed his entire rookie year last season with a broken foot.

Jerebko's signing comes as no shock, but the re-signing of Prince is surprising given the Pistons' amount of young forwards and several other teams' interest in the veteran Prince.

Ben Wallace appears ready to play one more season after taking his physical today. Training camp begins tomorrow, when the Pistons are expected to officially announce the signings of Prince and Jerebko. They are also likely to continue discussions with restricted free agent guard Rodney Stuckey.
