The Pistons are not expected to pick up Joel Anthony’s player option of $2.5 million for the 2016-17 season.
Stan Van Gundy has made it clear that he would like to acquire two additional big men during the offseason but Anthony won’t be one of them. The Pistons already have Andre Drummond, Aron Baynes and Cameron Bairstow for the center position, so there would be slim to none playing time for Anthony anyways. He has no fantasy value right now.
