Detroit Pistons sign injury-plagued 6-foot-11 center Justin Patton

DETROIT (AP) — The Detroit Pistons signed center Justin Patton on Friday, hoping the 2017 first-round pick can stay healthy to help the franchise’s turnaround. Patton had surgery for a broken foot in 2018 for the second straight year.
The 6-foot-11 player was selected No. 16 overall three years ago by the Chicago Bulls, who traded him on draft night to Minnesota as part of the Jimmy Butler trade.
