(TSX / STATS) -- The Detroit Pistons signed guard Dwight Buycks to a two-way contract, the team announced on Tuesday.
Buycks spent the past two seasons with the Fujian Sturgeons of the Chinese Basketball Association, and averaged over 25 points in each campaign. The Marquette product averaged 4.8 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 20 career NBA games with the Toronto Raptors and Los Angeles Lakers.
Teams are permitted to sign two players to two-way contracts. Players under two-way deals play primarily with a team's G League affiliate but are allowed to spend up to 45 days with the NBA club.
Buycks will spend most of his time with the Grand Rapids Drive in the G League.
