The Detroit Pistons have decided to release Peyton Siva after he apparently did not do enough this summer to earn a spot on the team. In 3 games, Siva averaged 10 points, 5 assists, and 2.3 rebounds in 23 minutes per game. He also averaged less than 2 turnovers per game (1.6). Not too bad for a point guard.

Cards in the NBA Summer League 7/8/14

NBA

Be sure to check out CardinalSportsZone.com over the next few weeks to keep up with how the former Cards are doing in the NBA Summer Leagues. When all the games are done for the day (with former Cards in them), we will update you on how they did for that day.

Tuesday saw only one former Card in action, as Peyton Siva and the Pistons beat the Miami Heat 80-78. After two great games to start the summer, this one was cut short. He played 12:38 but left the game with a sore hamstring and did not return. He finished with 2 points, 2 assists, and 1 rebound with 1 turnover. He shot 0-3 from the field, including 0-1 from 3-point and was 2-2 from the foul line.

The Pistons are back in action Wednesday evening as they take on the Celtics at 7:00 pm ET on NBA TV. Hopefully Siva is better and can play in this one.

Tomorrow the Magic play again at 3:00 pm ET against the Grizzles on NBA TV. Also, Peyton Siva and the Detroit Pistons play at 5:00 pm ET against the Miami Heat. That game will also be on NBA TV. In two games, Siva is averaging 14 points, 6.5 assists, and 3 rebounds per game.

The NBA Summer League’s are always exciting because you have guys out there fighting for a job. If you see a game, you may see about 10-20 people watching on the sidelines, so it may not look like the games mean much. But those guys are out there battling for a roster spot. That will be the case this summer for former Louisville Cardinal Peyton Siva with the Detroit Pistons.
