The Detroit Pistons have announced this morning that they have decided to part ways with second year guard Peyton Siva.

Siva is a Seattle native who was the 56th overall pick by the Pistons in the 2013 draft.  He played just about nine minutes a game last year and averaged a paltry 2.3 points and 1.4 assists a game.

With the Pistons signing Jodie Meeks to an outrageous contract, also picking up serviceable backup D.J. Augustin and drafting potential starting point guard of the future in Spencer Dinwiddie there wasn't a whole lot of minutes or even seconds left to be shared with Siva.

Siva will have to try to make a roster out of training camp, as there is not much time  for him to get with a Summer League squad with less than a week left. While he averaged 10 points and five assists in the Pistons first three Summer League games in Orlando, Siva did not play in the last two due to a coach's decision.  He looked markedly better than he did all of last season as a rookie, albeit against lesser competition.

Here's to hoping the right squad in either the NBA or the D-League picks him up.
