The Detroit Pistons have reportedly done a little maintenance to the back end of their roster.

According to Shams Charania of the Athletic, the Pistons have waived two-way forward Braxton Key and signed guard Jared Rhoden to a two-way deal.

Key, a 6-foot-8 forward in his fourth NBA season out of Virginia, played in three games for the Pistons this season, averaging 1.3 points and 0.3 rebounds in just nine total minutes. In 25 games with the Motor City Cruise in the G League, the 25-year-old Key averaged 17.2 points and 8.3 rebounds, shooting 43.9% from the field.
