AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) -- The Detroit Pistons signed free-agent guard/forward Jarvis Hayes on Thursday.
The 6-foot-8 Hayes appeared in 81 games last season for the Washington Wizards, averaging 7.2 points, 2.6 rebounds and 20.1 minutes.
"We are pleased to add Jarvis Hayes to our roster," team president Joe Dumars said. "Jarvis has proven himself as a solid NBA player over the last four seasons, and we like the flexibility and depth he will bring to our team at the small forward position."

Not a bad pickup for the Pistons; they're addressing their need of adding depth to their bench, which killed them in the Cleveland series. From their pretty good draft picks to their other offseason moves, they're doing pretty well.
