The Pistons received commitments Friday night from centers Mason Plumlee and Jahlil Okafor, people familiar with those deals told AP. ESPN, which first reported the Plumlee agreement, said he would sign a three-year deal for $25 million.

Plumlee later posted a thank-you letter to Denver fans on his Twitter account, saying he “has no doubt” that big things await the Nuggets. He also said he’s excited to join the Pistons, calling them “one of the league’s most storied franchises.”

The Pistons also agreed to a deal with Detroit native Josh Jackson. He's the former fourth overall pick in 2017 who hasn't found success in the NBA. Jackson is still only 23.

Jerami Grant is the fourth player the Pistons are adding, according to ESPN. The Nuggets forward is reportedly getting a three-year, $60 million deal.
