Pistons waive Deron Washington

From a team release:

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. – Detroit Pistons President of Basketball Operations Joe Dumars announced today that the club has requested waivers on guard/forward Deron Washington. He averaged 3.3 points, 0.6 rebounds and 6.4 minutes in seven preseason games.

Washington was drafted by Detroit with the 59th overall pick in the 2008 NBA Draft. He played on the Pistons’ summer league teams each of the last two years and averaged 14.8 points and 7.0 rebounds in 27 games for Hapoel Holon of the Greek League in 2008-09.

Bit of a shocker. I think it was assumed Washington would make the team.

I guess this means Chucky Atkins will make the roster – unless the Pistons are going the cheap route with just 13 players.

    Funny.  I never assumed this.  His numbers were bad, he is a horrendous shooter, and AAfflalo, a guy in a supposedly similar mode, was better and we jettisoned him.  Unfortunately for DW, he is not a kid who can stick in the league.  Now about Chucky and why on Earth he would make it….hmmm

    good for deron gt his quarter mil and can get back to playing over seas for now. He’s very athletic and fun to watch but doesn’t fit in to well in the drag your ass don’t play defense 80% of the itme NBA. NBA has turned into crap and is more for the show this is why other countries are doing as well as us in the olympics .
