DETROIT (AP) — The Detroit Pistons have exercised their team option for the 2020-21 season on Luke Kennard.
The Pistons also announced Thursday (Friday, PHL time) that they signed guard Craig Sword and waived Todd Withers.
The 6-foot-6 Kennard averaged 9.7 points last season and shot 39% from 3-point range. He was a first-round pick by Detroit in 2017.
Sword spent the last two seasons with the Erie Bayhawks of the G League.
