Lucas joins the Pistons after spending the season in China with the Fujian Sturgeons of the Chinese Basketball Association where he averaged 26.6 points in 26 games.
D.J. Augustin and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope both scored 28 points as the Detroit Pistons held off former teammate Josh Smith and the Houston Rockets 114-101 on Saturday night.
Smith says he has no hard feelings toward the Pistons and was glad to see their hard work pay off when they won seven straight games immediately after waiving him.
The Pistons said Jennings would undergo further evaluation after the guard needed help getting to the locker room.
Greg Monroe led Detroit with 16 points and 20 rebounds. Andre Drummond added 13 points and 18 rebounds, but made only 3-of-12 free throws.
Singler shot 6-of-8 on 3-pointers and Monroe finished with 12 points and 13 rebounds as the Pistons won for the ninth time in 11 games and improved to 6-15 at home.
Many called Drummond gifted, but not motivated; that he lacked a “motor.” Fitting enough, Drummond seems to be finding his motor in the Motor City.
Jennings took the inbounds pass and held for the last second shot. He drove to the bucket and missed the layup, but Drummond was there for the tip-in with 0.3 seconds to go.
Brandon Jennings had 34 points and 10 assists, and the Detroit Pistons won for the ninth time in 10 games, beating the Toronto Raptors.
Detroit, which has won eight of nine since releasing Josh Smith, also got 16 points and 17 rebounds from Greg Monroe and 14 points and nine boards from Andre Drummond.
