In the first draft tidbit of the year, the Pistons like Cal shooting guard Allen Crabbe.
Crabbe, a 6-6 junior, has been lighting up the Pac-12 since his freshman year, but this season is the first time NBA scouts have started to seriously consider him as a potential pro. Blessed with unlimited range and a nose for scoring the basketball, Crabbe has been huge for Cal this season, averaging 19.8 points per game.
If Crabbe were a better athlete or a more versatile scorer, he’d be a lock for the lottery. However, his shooting ability and fearlessness when it comes to scoring are enough to get him a serious look in the first round.
