James Edwards III, The Athletic’s Detroit Pistons writer, reported Tuesday that the Pistons aren’t picking up their option for the second year of Luka Garza’s two-year contract with the team.
The 2021 National Player of the Year at Iowa signed the deal last year with only his 2021-22 salary of $925,258 guaranteed. Garza was a second-round draft pick last year.
He played in 32 games for Detroit as a rookie, averaging 5.8 points. He also played in 16 games for the Pistons’ Motor City G League affiliate, averaging 20.6 points and 9.5 rebounds.
