mlive.com – AUBURN HILLS — The Detroit Pistons were so certain Henry Ellenson would be off the board before their first-round pick in the NBA draft that Stan Van Gundy barely scouted him at all.
Van Gundy said before the draft that there were 11 prospects who appeared out of the Pistons’ reach at No. 18 overall, so he just skimmed them and relied on his front office and scouts on the others.
Ellenson was one of those 11.
“I watched two games, but quickly, just so I knew who he was. I didn’t even take notes, to be quite honest,” Van Gundy said.
