AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- The Detroit Pistons have signed Vyacheslav Kravtsov to a multiyear contract.
The team announced the signing Saturday after saying earlier this month that it planned to sign the 24-year-old Ukrainian center.
Pistons president of basketball operations Joe Dumars says Kravtsov has good rebounding and shot-blocking ability.
The 6-foot-11 Kravtsov has played for the Ukrainian national team since 2006. He averaged 10.6 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.6 blocks in the Ukrainian Superleague last season.
