Former University of Kentucky standout Devin Booker worked out for the Detroit Pistons on Thursday and told the Detroit Free Press afterward that he thinks his game is built for today’s NBA.
“I saw a statistic where the last five NBA champions led the NBA in three-point shooting, and that’s what I do,’’ Booker said.
Booker, who made 41 percent of his three-point shots as a freshman at UK last season, is one of seven Wildcats eligible to be selected in next Thursday's NBA Draft.
The former UK guard grew up in Grand Rapids, Mich., and followed the Pistons.
“Growing up watching the team and just loving the dynasty that they had here and being a part of it,” he told the Free Press. “I think I understand the meaning of having Detroit Pistons across my chest.’’
