DETROIT -

The Detroit Pistons continue to fine tune their roster.

After signing guard DJ Augustin and small forward Caron Butler, the team was set to have 18 players on a team with room for only 15. So, today the team cut ties with second year point guard Peyton Siva and big man Josh Harrellson.

Siva led Louisville to the 2013 national championship, beating Michigan in the final, and was drafted in the second round last year by Detroit. As a rookie with the Pistons, he played in 24 games and averaged 2.3 points, 1.4 assists and 0.6 rebounds.

Harrellson played in 32 games in his only season with the Pistons (2013), averaging 2.9 points and 2.4 rebounds and shooting 46.3%.

Both players tweeted their goodbyes, saying thanks to the fans and to the team.
