The Detroit Pistons have added a national champion to their roster.
Detroit selected Louisville Point Guard Peyton Siva with the No. 56 pick in the draft.
Siva helped Louisville become the 2012-2013 National Champions.
We turn to draftexpress.com to help break down his game and leadership qualities:
“Overcoming a challenging early life and possessing as inspiring a backstory as any player in the 2013 Draft, Peyton Siva won a national championship and got to cut down the nets in Atlanta, putting the finishing touches on a terrific four-year career at Louisville. A player we’ve covered in detail at various points over the last five years, Siva still struggles with some of the same things he did as an underclassman. Nonetheless, he emerged as the undisputed leader of the Nation’s best team in 2013, made some small strides as a senior, and brings some intriguing abilities to the table as a prospect.”
“Many of those talents are a byproduct of Siva’s excellent athleticism. Though he lacks outstanding size for a point guard, he makes the most of his 6-1 frame and 6-3 wingspan with an explosive 41.5 inch vertical leap and tremendous quickness.”
