A year after becoming a second-round pick in the 2019 NBA draft, Deividas Sirvydis is officially coming to Detroit. 

Sirvydis, the 37th pick of last year’s draft, has agreed to a three-year contract with the Detroit Pistons, a league source confirmed to the Free Press. The Pistons traded for the 6-foot-8 Lithuanian wing on the night of the draft, sending three second-round picks to the Dallas Mavericks to acquire him.

A draft-and-stash pick, Sirvydis played professionally in Lithuania last season and averaged 6.6 points and 2.8 rebounds in 15.5 minutes per game. He hit 38.2% of his 3-pointers. 

The expectation for Sirvydis this season, per a source, is for him to spend significant time in the G League after competing in training camp, which begins Tuesday

Sirvydis is represented by agent Michael Tellem, who is Pistons vice chairman Arn Tellem’s son.
