Former Michigan State guard Matt McQuaid signs undrafted free agent deal with NBA team
Former Michigan State sharpshooter Matt McQuaid may have gone unpicked in the 2019 NBA Draft on Thursday night, but the ex-Spartan will get a chance to prove himself at the professional level.
On Friday, McQuaid reportedly signed an undrafted free agent deal with the Detroit Pistons. The report comes from Michael Scott of The Athletic. McQuaid went through a pre-draft workout with the franchise earlier in June.

McQuaid will likely participate with the Pistons through Summer League, which begins in July in Las Vegas. That will be his chance to prove he belongs on an NBA roster.
McQuaid played at Michigan State for four years and became known as one of the top 3-point shooters on the roster. Last year, he knocked down 42.2 percent of his shots from long distance. He averaged 9.8 points per game last season.
The Spartans won a B1G regular season and tournament titles, as well as reaching the Final Four.
