Veteran Forward Taj Gibson Signs 10-Day Deal with Detroit Pistons: A Boost for Rebuilding Team

According to a report by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, experienced forward Taj Gibson has agreed to a 10-day deal with the Detroit Pistons. Gibson, aged 38, notably excelled during his time with the Chicago Bulls and most recently played for the New York Knicks.

Gibson showcased his skills as a reliable rebounder and scorer during his tenure with the Bulls from 2009-10 to 2016-17. Since then, he has had stints with the Oklahoma City Thunder, Minnesota Timberwolves, Washington Wizards, and the Knicks.

His journey with the Knicks began in the 2019-20 season and extended until 2021-22, after which he briefly joined the Wizards for the 2022-23 season. Uncertainty surrounded Gibson’s NBA future in 2023-24 until he secured a 10-day contract with the Knicks in January 2024, following an earlier stint with the team that season.

Despite averaging only 10.3 minutes per game, Gibson’s veteran presence and leadership have been valued. This is a quality he is expected to bring to the rebuilding Pistons.

The Pistons have struggled significantly during the 2023-24 season, currently holding a 9-52 record, which ties them with the Washington Wizards for the worst record in the NBA. Gibson’s addition is anticipated to benefit the youthful Pistons roster, offering valuable experience and mentorship.

While it remains to be seen how much playing time Gibson will receive, the Pistons prioritize giving their younger players significant minutes. Nonetheless, Gibson’s overall influence on the team could prove to be substantial.
