Mason NEEDS this, Pistons, after all you've put him through

Burke considered the 5th best player in the draft by ESPN's Chad Ford
• Hardaway Jr. has been hiding in plain sight for the past three years. Whether it was comparisons to his father or the fact he was surrounded by so much talent at Michigan the past two years, he's struggled to convince scouts he's a first rounder. I'm not so sure that's the case anymore.
His performance at the combine, shooting the ball in the athletic testing, and in Friday's live action 3-on-3's put him in the same groupings with Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Jamaal Franklin, Glen Rice Jr. and Allen Crabbe for the next 2-guard to come off the board after McLemore and Oladipo get drafted.
Pistons Fans: McLemore, Porter and Oladipo are considered the options (in order)
|Name||Height w/o shoes||Height with shoes||Weight||Wingspan||Standing reach||Body fat||Hand length||Hand width|
|Chris Paul||5' 11.75''||6' 1''||178||6' 4.25''||7' 9''|
|Mike Conley Jr.||5' 11.75''||6' 0.75''||175||6' 5.75''||7' 10.5''||4.2|
|Trey Burke||5' 11.75''||6' 1.25''||187||6' 5.5''||8' 1.5''||6.9||8.25||8.75|
IMHO this closes the book on any negative discussion of Trey Burke's size. He is on track to be a high lottery pick. GO BLUE!
"Indiana announced Thursday that the former Arizona State guard will transfer to Bloomington and enroll in graduate school so he can be eligible immediately next season. Gordon, an Indianapolis native, is the brother of former Indiana star and NBA guard Eric Gordon."
This guy just does not stay at one place for very long (began career at Liberty), but a good move for him. Averaged 10.1 ppg last year for the Sun Devils, and could come in and help fortify a young Indiana team. Getting to play in your home state in front of friends and family is an added bonus as well.

According to ESPN’s Chad Ford, Hardaway has been extremely impressive at pre-draft workouts, not only competing against fellow guard prospects such as Isaiah Canaan, but besting them. Ford called Hardaway “the best player on the floor for all two hours” of a workout that he watched on Tuesday.
Hardaway has all the physical tools to be a dominant NBA player. Hopefully he can put it all together in the NBA.
