John Kuester will run Pistons’ individual workouts in Auburn Hills


After Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press reported John Kuester isn’t attending the NBA Combine in Chicago this week, Vincent Goodwill of The Detroit News has the scoop about Kuester’s involvement in the Pistons’ draft process:

"On Thursday, Kuester told The Detroit News he’ll run all the individual draft workouts when prospects begin making their way to Auburn Hills."

I don’t really understand this. If the Pistons are comfortable – regardless their long-term plans for him – having Kuester help with the draft process, why not take him to Chicago? Could it be a cost-saving move?

If you trust him to run individual workouts in Auburn Hills, why couldn’t he be an extra set of eyes in Chicago?
