Pistons Exercise Option On Svi Mykhailiuk

Hoops Rumors

Pistons small forward Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk has had his $1,663,861 third-year team option for the 2020/21 season exercised, per Keith Smith of Yahoo Sports (Twitter link). The move doesn’t guarantee his salary, but it’ll become guaranteed if he remains on the roster through this Saturday, which is a lock.

Mykhailiuk enjoyed a modest breakout season in 2019/20, appearing in 56 of a possible 66 games for Detroit as a solid part of the team’s rotation. He averaged 9.0 PPG, 1.9 APG, and 1.9 RPG – all career highs – in 22.6 MPG, knocking down 40.4% of his three-point attempts.

After playing out the 2020/21 season, Mykhailiuk will become eligible for restricted free agency during the summer of 2021.

The Pistons, who missed the NBA’s Orlando restart with a 20-46 record and the No. 13 seed in the East, will have the seventh pick in tomorrow’s draft. They’ll also have a much bigger free agency decision facing them on Friday, when standout power forward Christian Wood hits the market.
