DETROIT, MI - A person familiar with the situation says the Detroit Pistons have agreed to deals with free agents Caron Butler and D.J. Augustin.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity Sunday night because the team has not announced the deals.

The team is set to pay Butler $4.5 million next season, with an option for 2015-16. Augustin will make $6 million over two years.

The 6-foot-7 Butler played 56 games last season for Milwaukee and Oklahoma City, averaging 10.5 points and shooting 39 percent from 3-point range.

Augustin was waived by Toronto early last season, but the 26-year-old point guard caught on with Chicago after that and ended up averaging 13.1 points for the season.
