Justise Winslow has draft workout with Pistons

BY foxsports • June 18, 2015

The Detroit Pistons might get lucky next week. This is always a possibility when you're in the NBA Draft lottery.

But could they be so lucky as to have Duke forward Justise Winslow drop to them, at No. 8? Winslow, a leading member of the Blue Devils' national championship run this past spring, is projected as high as No. 2 in a lot of simulations.

That didn't stop Detroit from working him out this week, though.

"My dream is to make the NBA regardless to where I get picked," Winslow said after his Pistons workout. "My dream is going to come true on June 25. I am extremely blessed. Wherever I'm picked, I am going to make it work. It's always a dream to go as high as you want, but it would not be a disappointment (to go eighth). I am living my dream."

If this does come to occur, it would be a dream come true for Motor City.
