The Detroit Pistons might have finally found their 15th man. According to a report on Yahoo! Sports, the Pistons have reached a contract agreement with fringe player Josh Harrellson. At 6'10", Harrellson brings the size Detroit needed, but he's short on NBA experience. Harrellson was drafted by New Orleans in the second round of the 2011 draft, and immediately sold to the New York Knicks. He played 14.6 minutes a game in an injury-plagued rookie season, averaging 4.4 points and 3.9 rebounds in 37 games. After the season, he was a throw-in when the Knicks traded for Houston's Marcus Camby, and was waived by the Rockets without playing a game. He was picked up briefly by Miami last season, playing 31 minutes over six games, but finished the season with teams in Puerto Rico and China. Harrellson could see some playing time in the post behind Andre Drummond, Greg Monroe and Josh Smith, filling the role left vacant by the trade of Slava Kravtsov.
