22-year-old point guard Saben Lee is set to return to the Detroit Pistons on a three-year contract, according to reports. Lee was a restricted free agent, meaning the Pistons could respond to any offer made to Lee before he could sign.
ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported the news via Twitter on Thursday.
