Detroit Pistons sign Taj Gibson to a 10-day contract

Detroit Bad Boys

The Detroit Pistons, who released two reserve big men in the days following the NBA Trade Deadline, have fortified the big rotation by signing 38-year-old Taj Gibson to a 10-day contract.

Previously, the Pistons released two former Washington Wizards in Danilo Gallinari and Mike Muscala so the vets could land on contending teams. Gallinari eventually signed with the Milwaukee Bucks and Muscala signed with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Gibson has played 16 games for an injury-depleted New York Knicks team. The Pistons have 20 games remaining this season, and he could be on the Pistons roster moreso as a mentor and maybe even a potential coaching role after this season and not so much as a player expected to see any significant minutes on the floor.

He should be available for Detroit’s game Thursday night against the Brooklyn Nets.
