Detroit native Chris Douglas-Roberts practicing with #Pistons but not part of Summer team. Played in China last season.

Douglas-Roberts actually had a couple of solid NBA seasons, but got a nice deal in Italy (not China as Langlois reported — I believe CDR did have a deal with a Chinese shoe company or something, so that’s probably where the confusion came from). He averaged 12.3 points per game last season. Not sure if he has another overseas contract or not, but he’s actually capable of helping a NBA team off the bench if he goes that route.
