From Detroitbadboys.com:  “The  may or may not have found the final member of their roster — Josh Harrellson.

At this point it's only well-informed speculation as DBBer mike223 noted in comments, Harrellson's cousin, Mackenzie Nelson (@mackenzien22), tweeted a congratulations on Harrellson signing a deal with the Detroit Pistons.
