SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Former Syracuse guard Michael Gbinije has agreed to a 3-year deal with the Detroit Pistons, according to The Vertical's Sham Charania.
The Pistons took Gbinije 49th overall in the 2016 NBA draft.
In his final season with the Orange, Gbinije led the team with 17.5 points per game and shot just under 40 percent from 3-point range. He was a major part of Syracuse's Final Four run. In his first full season playing the point guard position for Jim Boeheim, Gbinije had an assist-to-turnover ratio of 1.5. He also grabbed 4.1 boards a game.
Gbinije committed to Duke out of high school, where he played one season for Mike Krzyzewski. He then sat out the 2012-13 season after transferring to Syracuse. His role significantly increased over his three years with the Orange.
In his first season, Gbinije played just over 14 minutes per game and averaged 3.4 points. In his second season, his minutes skyrocketed to 35 a game, along with his production - 12.7 points per game.
Gbinije joined the 1,000 point club this season, becoming just the 61st player in school history - and the third transfer student - to do so.
The terms of Gbinije's deal with the Pistons has not yet been revealed.
