Maxiell signs contract to retire as member of Pistons

The Detroit Pistons have signed Jason Maxiell to a contract, allowing him to retire as a member of the organization.

The team announced the move Friday (Saturday, PHL time). Maxiell was drafted by the Pistons in 2005, and after his eight seasons with them, he joined Orlando and Charlotte before signing overseas.

“The best years of my professional career were spent in Detroit and it’s important to me to retire as a Detroit Piston,” Maxiell said. “This is a special franchise with great tradition and history. I want to thank all the fans who supported me during my eight seasons representing Detroit.”

Detroit general manager Jeff Bower said Maxiell and his representatives reached out to the Pistons about his desire to sign one last contract with the team before retiring.
