AUBURN HILLS, MICH. (AP) - The Detroit Pistons have re-signed center Ben Wallace to a two-year contract worth $1.9 million per season.

The team announced the signing Wednesday.

The 35-year-old Wallace was one of Detroit’s best players last season as it endured a miserable, injury-plagued year and didn’t make the playoffs for the first time since 2001. He averaged 5.5 points, a team-high 8.7 rebounds and team-best 1.2 blocks last season.

Wallace helped the Pistons win the 2004 NBA title during a five-year stretch in which he won the Defensive Player of the Year award four times.
