To compensate for various injuries to their backcourt, the Pistons have re-signed Walker Russell Jr., who attended training camp with the Pistons before being released and joining the Fort Wayne Mad Ants of the NBA D-League.

Russell Jr. averaged 16 points and a league-high 9.9 assists per game in the D-League in 16 games this season with the Mad Ants. The son of former Piston Walker D. Russell, Russell Jr. should continue to see spot minutes behind rookie Brandon Knight and veterans Ben Gordon and Rodney Stuckey.
