Pistons, Meeks agree to $19.5M 3YR deal

Posted: Updated:
    DETROIT (AP) -- The Detroit Pistons have decided to invest in Jodie Meeks' future, banking on his best basketball being ahead of him.
 
   Meeks has agreed to a $19.5 million, three-year deal with Detroit, a person familiar with the situation said Tuesday night.
 
   The person, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because free agents can't sign contracts until the league's moratorium ends July 10, also said Cartier Martin had agreed to a one-year contract with the rebuilding franchise.
 
   The 6-foot-4 Meeks averaged a career-high 15.7 points and scored a team-high 1,209 points last season for the Los Angeles Lakers. The shooting guard has averaged 9.7 points over his five-year career.
 
   Milwaukee drafted Meeks in the second round in 2009 and traded him during his rookie season to Philadelphia. The Lakers signed him as a free agent in 2012 and exercised a team option last year to keep him on the roster for a second season.
 
   Martin, a 6-7 small forward, has averaged 5.4 points over his six-year career.
