Big Ten Star Gets Pistons Workout
Ahead of the upcoming NBA draft, the Detroit Pistons have a lot to figure out. With only a second round pick and serious salary cap issues, there's little room for error.
On Saturday, six players participated in a pre-draft workout according to Nolan Bianchi of the Detroit News.
Among those players was Purdue center Isaac Haas.
This past season, Haas led Purdue to an overall 30-7 record. As a center, he frequently led the team in scoring and rebounding.
Despite a No. 2 seed ranking in the NCAA Tournament, an elbow injury to Haas in a first round win devastated Purdue's title hopes.
It's not yet clear how Haas would fit in with the team, which already has big men Blake Griffin and Andre Drummond, if drafted by Detroit. Haas is projected as a late second round pick.
This offseason, the Pistons released head coach and team president Stan Van Gundy. Earlier in June, news surfaced that the team had also parted ways with general manager Jeff Bower.
With incoming head coach Dwane Casey and an unannounced general manager, eyes will be on this draft to preview the franchise's new direction.
