The Detroit Pistons announced today that the team has signed rookie forward Henry Ellenson to a multi-year contract. Per team policy, terms of the contract were not disclosed. Ellenson, a 6-foot-11, 245-pound forward out of Marquette, was selected by the Pistons with the 18th overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft. In the recently completed Orlando Pro Summer League, he averaged 12.4 points, 7.4 rebounds and 29.4 minutes in five games (all starts).
But with the Detroit Pistons’ fourth-year shooting guard eligible for a contract extension, the questions will keep coming until it’s resolved. Caldwell-Pope says the situation is not on his mind. “I haven’t thought about it,” Caldwell-Pope told the Free Press on Monday after working against Team USA as part of the USA Select team on UNLV’s campus. “I’m focusing this summer on getting better, and let my agent handle all that. I haven’t even talked to my agent about that. I’m just working on my game for next season.”
