C - WAS - TWO-WAY
The Pistons reportedly picked up the $1.9 million option on Eugene Omoruyi.
Omoruyi earned two 10-day contracts before signing for the rest of the season to end last campaign. He has earned himself a spot in the Pistons rotation once again next season.
Eugene Omoruyi poured in 20 points (8-10 FG, 5-6 3P, 1-2 FT) to go along with three rebounds, an assist, and a steal over 27 minutes in a Friday evening 132-113 win over the Raptors.
Omoruyi is part of a committee filling in for the injured Darius Bazley and he stepped up big time off the bench on Friday. The 22 points came at an incredibly high clip and marked a season-high in points by a longshot. Omoruyi had been averaging under ten minutes per game prior to Friday but proved that he deserves more playing time going forward. He can quickly become a part of the regular rotation with performances like these.
