Pistons Sign Second-Round Pick Isaiah Livers

Hoops Rumors

The Pistons have officially signed former Michigan forward Isaiah Livers, according to NBA.com’s transactions log.

While terms of the deal aren’t yet known, Detroit had been operating under the cap, giving the team the ability to offer Livers a three- or four-year deal that starts above the rookie minimum.

The 42nd overall pick in this year’s draft, Livers spent all four years of his college career with the Wolverines, putting up career-best marks in PPG (13.1), RPG (6.0), APG (2.0), and 3PT% (.431) as a senior.

Livers won’t be available for Summer League, as he continues to recover from the right foot surgery that ended his college career. However, as we relayed on Thursday, he’s hopeful that he’ll be fully cleared for basketball activities this fall, around the start of the 2021/22 season. Detroit figures to play it safe with the 6’7″ rookie and may have him spend time in the G League.

The Pistons selected four players in this year’s draft — Livers, Luka Garza, Balsa Koprivica and, of course, No. 1 overall pick Cade Cunningham.
