Recent Three-Point Contest participant signing with Pistons

Beasley, 27, averages 10.9 points for his career and is a skilled marksman, shooting 38.5% from beyond the arc in 496 games, He was incredibly durable last year, starting in 77 of 79 games for the Bucks and making 41.3% of his threes.

Interest in Beasley from the Pistons was reported on Friday night from HoopsHype’s Michael Scotto. The fit between the two sides makes sense, as Detroit ranked 29th in made three-pointers and 26th in three-point percentage last year during their franchise-worst season.

Now, Beasley joins Tobias Harris (career 36.8% three-point shooter) and Tim Hardaway Jr. (36.0% from deep) as some of Detroit’s key offseason additions who can make an impact from outside. Combine these additions with the fact that the franchise is bringing in assistant Fred Vinson, known for his work with players from the three-point line, and it’s clear that spacing the floor for young guard Cade Cunningham was a top priority this offseason.

Beasley played for Milwaukee on a minimum contract last year and, after a successful individual year in which he participated in the NBA’s Three-Point Contest, is signing in Detroit’s cap space.
