John Lucas III Rumors
Detroit Pistons General Manager Jeff Bower announced today that the club has signed guard John Lucas III for the remainder of the season following two consecutive 10-day contracts. Per team policy, terms of the agreement were not disclosed. The 5-foot-11, 166-pound guard has averaged 5.0 points, 3.3 assists and 12.2 minutes in eight games with Detroit. He scored a season-high 10 points at Indiana (2/4) and has dished out a season-high six assists twice.
John Lucas III doesn’t have promises beyond his 10-day contract with the Detroit Pistons. But that’s OK for the veteran point guard, who signed this morning. After his second stint in the Chinese Basketball Association, the 31-year-old is just glad to be back in the world’s top league. “There’s never a promise in the league,” he said with a laugh after a long Pistons practice. “It’s all up to me. When I step foot on that court, it’s what I’m capable of doing. Nobody is responsible for anything.
