The Detroit Pistons have agreed to terms on a three-year deal with Spencer Dinwiddie, who they selected with the No. 38 pick in the draft, as first reported by ESPN's Marc Stein. The first two years of the deal are fully guaranteed, per the Detroit News' Vincent Goodwill. An official announcement is coming as soon as Dinwiddie completes a physical, according to the Detroit Free Press' Vince Ellis.

Dinwiddie is recovering from a torn ACL, but he had first-round numbers and talent. If his knee heals properly, he could be a steal. As a result of his health, though, he's seen as a risk. That's why he and his agent would have wanted two guaranteed years. That third year might make this into a bargain for Detroit if he can stay on the court.
