Pistons Sign Veteran Forward To Extension

The Detroit Pistons have an exciting up-and-coming young core. But all of their key pieces being 23 or younger, they decided this summer to bring in a proven, solid veteran scorer to fill a void in both their lineup, and their locker room. And Bojan Bogdanovic has not disappointed. Now, he'll be sticking around for a while. 

The Pistons have signed the 33-year-old to a two-year, $39M extension, keeping him in the Motor City through the 2024-25 season. 

Bogdanovic is off to a tremendous start with Detroit, leading the team in scoring at 22.7 points with a blistering 51% from three-point range. And his work off the court is impressing the young Pistons just as much as his on-court exploits. 

"He’s very knowledgable about the game, and he shares his knowledge,” Cade Cunningham said about Bogdanovic. “He doesn’t hold it to himself. He makes sure that all of us are on the same page." 

And while that page doesn't include a lot of wins just yet, at 2-5, they're building something in Detroit, and Bogey wants to be a part of it. 

With 24 threes through the team's first six games (he added another three triples Sunday night), Bogdanovic set an All-Time Pistons record, originally set by Joe Dumars, who hit 21 shots from downtown through the first six games of the 1996-97 season.
