The Detroit Pistons announced Sunday they have signed former Duke guard Frank Johnson to a two-way contract. 

Jackson, 22, was selected No. 31 overall in 2017 after a season with the Blue Devils. After missing his entire first season because of a broken right foot, Jackson spent two seasons with the New Orleans Pelicans. He averaged 6.3 points and one assist in 13.5 minutes per game last year over 59 appearances.

Jackson will occupy the Pistons’ second two-way contract spot, which opened up after the organization parted ways with Louis King before the start of the regular season last week. 

Along with 2020 draft pick Saben Lee, the Pistons now have a pair of young, athletic guards who could see extended time with the Motor City Cruise, their G League affiliate which will play in Midtown beginning next season.
