NBA Draft lottery: Purdue’s Jaden Ivey could give Pistons another all-around ball handler
There is no telling where the Detroit Pistons will end up in this year’s NBA Draft. With scoring being one of the top things the Pistons are looking to add next season, adding a player like Purdue’s Jaden Ivey to the mix would address that need. He possesses skills on both sides of the ball but he truly thrives when he’s attacking the basket. On the other side of the ball, Ivey has shown that he has quick hands and good instincts when jumping into passing lanes. Should the Pistons choose Ivey in this year’s draft, they would likely get a strong running mate for Cade Cunningham.mlive.com
