The Pistons didn’t waste time getting to work when the NBA moratorium began at 12:01 a.m. Monday.

The Pistons met with free agent forwards Josh Smith and Andre Iguodala on the first day teams could start negotiating with free agents, according to a person familiar with the situation.

Commitments are allowed, but signings are on hold until July 10 when the moratorium ends when the league will release the salary cap for the 2013-14 season.

Pistons president of basketball operations Joe Dumars said Friday, the day after the NBA draft, that the team wasn’t done trying to acquire athletic small forwards and shooting guards after selecting Georgia shooting guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope in the first round.

And Smith and Iguodala fit the profile.

The Pistons also want to get younger veterans. That’s Smith. He’s only 27, yet he has been in the league for nine seasons.

He is one of the better two-way players in the game at 6-feet-9 with career averages of 15.3 points, eight rebounds, 3.2 assists, 2.1 blocked shots and 1.3 steals per game.

He can play the small and power forward spots — although there appears to be some duplication if the Pistons are able to sign him with the selection of second-round pick Tony Mitchell.
