Mason Plumlee signs 3-year, $25 million contract with Pistons

Mason Plumlee, Pistons

Free agent big man Mason Plumlee has agreed to a three-year, $25 million contract with the Detroit Pistons, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Plumlee served as a rotational big for the Denver Nuggets last season and played a pivotal role in their postseason success. Most of his minutes came alongside or behind Nikola Jokic, which could’ve led to the 30-year old desiring a larger platform to showcase his skills. He finished last season averaging 7.2 points along with 5.2 rebounds. He only averaged roughly 17.3 points per game, which was a significant drop from his 2018-19 minutes of 21.1.

The Pistons are possibly in the mix of shaking up their frontcourt after trading Andre Drummond in February. Their other standout big in Christian Wood is set to enter free agency as well, which could possibly lessen the possibility of him returning after the Pistons came to terms with Plumlee on Friday.

The Pistons finished the 2019-20 season 13th in the Eastern Conference with a 20-46 record. They’ve started to initiate a rebuild phase after making some interesting moves on draft night as well.

Plumlee will likely serve as the starting big upfront for the Pistons alongside Blake Griffin as they continue to fill out the remaining spots on their roster going forward.
