Montero was most recently waived by the Heat in 2016 after spending training camp with them, and he'll now have another shot at the league in Detroit. Montero played in summer league for both the Mavericks and Kings this year and will likely spend majority of the 2017-18 season in the G League upon singing this deal.
Willis singed a one-year contract with the Pistons on Thursday, Chris Haynes of ESPN.com reports.
The terms of the contract have yet to be disclosed, but it's likely just a non-guaranteed training camp deal. Willis, one of the rare four-year players out of Kentucky, finished his senior campaign with averages of 7.0 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.0 block across 21.8 minutes. The 6-foot-9 big man showed the ability shoot from all over the floor, including an impressive 38 percent from behind the three-point line. If he does ultimately make the final roster, he'd likely just be a deep reserve in the frontcourt and could see plenty of time with the team's affiliate in the G-League.
Coach Stan Van Gundy said Johnson will see more minutes at small forward during the upcoming season, Rod Beard of the Detroit News reports.
Johnson is one of a few candidates to take over the starting small forward spot following the departure of Marcus Morris, but it doesn't appear coach Stan Van Gundy is ready to confirm he's that guy at this point in the offseason. That said, Johnson still has a much clearer path to playing time in his third season in the league, which should mean a decent bump in the 17.8 minutes per game he averaged during the 2016-17 campaign. We should get a better indication of Johnson's role following the completion of training camp, but he'll have as many opportunities as possible to earn a spot in the top unit.
Jackson missed a bunch of games during the 2016-17 campaign, as a knee injury forced him to be shut down for the final nine games of the season. However, after changing up his routine with less court time and more flexibility training, Jackson is already feeling the benefits and his knee appears to be back to full strength. Whether that can last a whole season is up for debate, but it appears Jackson is fully expected to be at full strength for training camp. While Jackson is the favorite to open the season as the team's starting point guard, the Pistons did float his name around in potential trade scenarios, which will be something to monitor over the next few months.
Tolliver, who saw his role fluctuate heavily during his time in Sacramento, will join the Pistons on a one-year deal. The veteran shot an impressive 39.1 percent from beyond the arc last season and should help provide floor spacing from the small forward and power forward positions. He saw 22.7 minutes per game last season and posted 7.1 points, 3.6 boards and 1.2 assists, which are numbers he could likely put up on his new team. That said, it seems doubtful that he'll be very relevant in fantasy, though could make for a nice flier here and there in DFS when a wing or frontcourt player suffers an injury.
