Anthony has agreed two a two-year deal with the Pistons worth $5 million, Vincent Ellis of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Anthony's second year of the deal is reportedly non-guaranteed as he'll head to Detroit and provide depth to coach Stan Van Gundy's bench. The veteran will certainly play behind Andre Drummond and he'll likely be slotted behind Aron Baynes as well, which hardly leaves any time for Anthony to produce viable numbers under most formats.

Anthony saw limited action in 49 contests in 2014-15, averaging 1.8 points and 1.9 rebounds per game.

Anthony was traded from Boston to Detroit two weeks before the start of the regular season, and he primarily provided veteran frontcourt depth for the Pistons. The 32-year-old is very limited on the offensive end, but he remains a dependable rebounder and interior defender. An unrestricted free agent this offseason, Anthony will likely seek a roster spot with a contender for a near-minimum salary.

Anthony scored six points (3-3 FG) with six rebounds, one assist, one steal and four blocks in 26 minutes Saturday.

Anthony saw some extra run with Anthony Tolliver battling foul trouble and Greg Monroe (knee) sidelined. In only 15 minutes over his last five games, Anthony is averaging 2.0 blocks per game, but offers little aside from that category to fantasy owners and when Monroe return, Anthony will likely see his role reduced significantly, or possibly minimised completely.

Anthony scored a season-high 10 points (5-9 FG, 0-1 FT) with five rebounds and one block in 21 minutes Saturday.

Anthony was called into action with Andre Drummond going down with a concussion and played a season high in minutes as well as scoring in double-digits for the first time. The 10 points were more than he had scored in his previous nine games combined, but if Drummond is forced to miss time, Anthony may be a sneaky source of blocks and rebounds in deeper leagues.
