Chris Wilcox uses player option to stay with Pistons

Detroit Pistons forward/center Chris Wilcox has exercised his player option for next season.

Wilcox, 27, will earn $3 million next season. Signed as a free agent last summer, Wilcox averaged 4.5 points and 3.4 rebounds in 34 games last season.

Wilcox provides depth in the frontcourt, but he could prove valuable this summer in a trade package if matching salaries don’t correspond.
