With Jerami Grant being sidelined the last five games with right knee soreness, minutes opened up for Pistons youngster Sekou Doumbouya. The 20-year-old has averaged 12.6 PPG & 5.4 RPG in Grant’s absence, displaying the potential Detroit saw when they selected him #15 overall in the 2019 NBA Draft. Head coach Dwane Casey says he thinks Doumbouya already has ‘elite’ skills to his game.

“His cutting is elite. His rebounding is elite. His running the floor is elite. As long as he does those things he has a place in this league for a long time.”
