The free agency can do a lot for a team who was nowhere near to a .500 record last season, and that has been the case for the Detroit Pistons, who have been able to do magic thanks to GM Troy Weaver.
Following the additions of free agent Centers, Mason Plumlee and Jahlil Okafor, who reached an agreement with the Pistons, Detroit has added yet another two players with hopes of making the playoffs next season.
Josh Jackson and Jerami Grant will be joining Dwane Casey's squad, and so far the Pistons have had the most impressive free agency signings.

Jackson, 23, was the fourth overall pick in the 2017 Draft to the Suns. He spent last season with Memphis, splitting the season between the G League and Grizzlies.
For Grant, he wanted a new challenger after being such an important player in the Nuggets playoff run to the Conference Finals last season. The Athletic's Shams Charania reported Denver matched the three-year, $60M offer Jerami Grant received from Detroit but he wanted to have a more offensive role with the Pistons.
Troy Weaver had already made a couple of moves as the team's new GM, including trading for Dzanan Musa and Trevor Ariza, as well as drafting Killian Hayes with the 8 overall pick.
