Pistons sign sharpshooter Sirvydis to three-year deal


Pistons GM Troy Weaver has already discarded most of the young players he inherited in Detroit.

But he committed to one of them with a three-year deal on Tuesday: Lithuanian sharpshooter and 2019 second-round pick Deividas Sirvydis, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

A 6'8 wing who can space the floor and hit the three? Sounds about right.

The 20-year-old Servydis appeared in five games for the Pistons in the 2019 NBA Summer League, connecting on half of his threes. He's spent the past three years playing professionally in Lithuania.

In 40 games for his club team last season, mostly off the bench, Servydis averaged 6.1 points and shot 35 percent from three.

Sirvydis comes from good basketball stock. His father played professionally in the EuroLeague.

"My dad was a very good shooter," he said the night Pistons drafted him. "Shooting is my strong side."

Now he'll get a chance to show it in Detroit. Servydis will join the Pistons for the start of training camp on Tuesday, with the 2020-21 season slated to start Dec. 22.
