The Detroit Pistons have agreed to a two-year, $3.75 million contract with Italian League MVP Luigi Datome, according to multiple reports.

The 6-foot-9, 220-pound forward posted on his Facebook page earlier Tuesday that he was leaving the Italian League to join the Pistons, according to the reports.

Datome, 25, averaged 16.6 points and 5.8 rebounds for Virtus Roma last season, shooting 47 percent from the field (41 percent on 3-point attempts) and 92 percent from the free throw line.

The Pistons can't announce contract agreements with free agents until Wednesday, when the league moritorium on signings is lifted. According to sources, the Pistons had agreed to deals with forward Josh Smith and guard Will Bynum in addition to the reported addition of Datome.
