Will Bynum will re-sign with the Detroit Pistons, FOXSportsDetroit’s Dave Hogg reported, easing some of the team’s problems at the point guard position. Bynum and the Pistons agreed to a two-year deal worth $5.75 million. That number works out to $2.875 million per season, if it’s split evenly. A $2.875 million cap hit for Bynum would bring the Pistons just north of $50 million in salaries committed for the 2013 season, still well below the $58.5 million salary cap. The current Pistons under contract, with their 2013 cap hits: • Josh Smith: $13 million • Charlie Villanueva: $8.58 million • Rodney Stuckey: $8.5 million • Jonas Jerebko: $4.5 million • Greg Monroe: $4.087 million • Brandon Knight: $2.794 million • Andre Drummond: $2.462 million • Slava Kravtsov: $1.5 million • Kyle Singler: $1.045 million • Khris Middleton: $789K Kim English could drop another $789K salary onto the cap, if the Pistons opt to hold onto him for his second NBA season. Should they choose to part ways with English, his salary would come off the books. Detroit also has yet to sign rookie Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, who will command a first-year salary of $2,210,900, per the NBA’s rookie wage scale. Fellow draft picks Tony Mitchell and Peyton Siva would be looking at contracts near the rate of Middleton and English, Detroit’s second-round picks in 2012. Add it all up, and the Pistons still have room to play the free-agent market — somewhere between $5 million and $6 million left under the cap, plus the available mid-level exception that would permit Detroit to bump over the $58.5 million figure. Bynum’s return coupled with Knight’s apparent move back to point guard may mean the Pistons do not have to pursue another PG on the free-agent market. If not, they’ll likely go into the season with Knight, Bynum, Caldwell-Pope, Stuckey and possibly English to play their two guard spots.
