The Detroit Pistons continued a major roster shakeup with the signing of Terry Mills to an offer sheet on Tuesday.

Mills, a former Michigan star, is a restricted free agent with New Jersey, so the Nets have 15 days to match the Pistons' offer, reported to be $10 million over five years.Willis Reed, the Nets vice president of basketball operations, has said the club would match any offer Mills received. Chuck Daly, the Nets new coach, also has said he would like to sign Mills.

Reed was on vacation Tuesday.

"We've received the offer sheet," Nets senior vice president Jim Lampariello said. "We are reviewing it and checking out all our options."

But Billy McKinney, the Pistons director of player personnel, said he hoped the Detroit offer would be too high for the Nets to match.
