The Detroit Pistons claimed center/forward Paul Reed off waivers on Tuesday, three days after the Philadelphia 76ers had released him.

Reed, 25, averaged 7.3 points, 6.0 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 1.0 blocks and 19.4 minutes in 82 games (24 starts) last season for Philadelphia.

The 76ers selected him in the second round of the 2020 NBA Draft out of DePaul. He has averaged 5.1 points, 4.2 rebounds, 0.8 assists, 0.8 blocks and 13.1 minutes in 215 games (28 starts).

Reed is entering the second year of a three-year, $23 million contract, with $15.7 million remaining for two non-guaranteed seasons. Reed had signed an offer sheet with the Utah Jazz as a restricted free agent last summer, and Philadelphia matched the offer.

He joins a Pistons roster that has added guard Tim Hardaway Jr., forward Tobias Harris and, reportedly, guards Malik Beasley and Wendell Moore Jr. in the offseason.
