The Detroit Pistons, owners of No. 1 in the NBA Draft for 2021, are conducting individual training programs with some of the best prospects in the draft pool this week, sources tell ESPN.
The Pistons hosted Cade Cunningham for a light training session in Detroit on Tuesday and are scheduled to bring Jalen Green and Jalen Suggs in for private training programs in the coming days. The Pistons would like to bring in Evan Mobley but have not yet planned a visit, sources said.
Cunningham, the longtime frontrunner for the top overall election, has no plans to conduct further visits, sources said, and would be extremely happy to land in Detroit. Green, prospect No. 2 on ESPN 100, currently plans to complete only one additional workout: at the Houston Rockets training facility, No. 2 pick owners.
Mobley and the Suggs are widely expected to be the next two players off the table, with No. 3 and No. 4 picks currently held by the Cleveland Cavaliers and Toronto Raptors.
Scottie Barnes, the expected No. 5 pick in the draft, was in Tampa and working for the Raptors Tuesday, a source said.
