James Young, Dante Exum, Nik Stauskas, Glen Robinson III get their Pistons on at NBA combine

Alex Kennedy of Basketball Insiders:

Dante Exum met with the Sixers, Pistons and Suns today. One of the most intriguing players in the draft.

Eric Vincent of 1130 WDFN:

Nik Stauskas met and interviewed with the #Pistons last night

Keith Langlois of Pistons.com:

Michigan’s Glenn Robinson III says he, like teammate Nik Stauskas, also interviewed with #Pistons last night

James Young just shot up my draft board. Still wouldn’t take him at No. 8, but that’s an awesome shirt for the Michigan native.

As for Exum, Stauskas and Robinson – it’s exciting to imagine any of them as Pistons. The Pistons would probably need to move up in the lottery to get Exum, and I like his size, athleticism and blossoming skillset. Stauskas is the type of shooter Detroit needs, and though No. 8 is probably too high for him, it’s at least possible he works himself into that range by draft day. Robinson would be a nice second-round pickup, someone who could maybe put his hops and shooting together in a way he never fully did at Michigan.

But the Pistons are going to interview a lot of players, whether at the combine in Chicago this week or in Auburn Hills after. There’s little use in getting to attached to a player just because he spoke with Detroit.
