DETROIT — The Detroit Pistons exercised their 2018-19 options on forwards Stanley Johnson and Rice Lake native Henry Ellenson on Sunday. 

They also waived guard Beno Udrih.

The team announced the moves Sunday. Udrih did not appear in any games for Detroit this preseason. He averaged 5.8 points in 39 games for the Pistons last season.

Johnson and Ellenson were first-round draft picks in 2015 and 2016. Johnson has averaged 6.2 points in 150 career games. Ellenson averaged 3.2 points as a rookie last season.
