Mississippi State’s Reggie Perry has signed with CAA Sports and will remain in the draft, Evan Daniels of 247 Sports reports (Twitter link). Perry is No. 46 on ESPN’s Big Board and ranks No. 7 among centers.
Here’s more from the upcoming draft:
- Ashton Hagans will also sign with CAA Sports and will remain in the draft, Daniels tweets. The Kentucky guard is No. 48 on ESPN’s Big Board.
- LaMelo Ball would be a nice selection for Detroit if the Pistons climb into the top three in the NBA draft, James L. Edwards of The Athletic writes. The Pistons have not drafted a point guard in the first round since they selected Brandon Knight, who was the No. 8 overall pick in the 2011 draft.
- One rival scout believes James Wiseman would be in consideration for the Pistons with their No. 1 pick, as Edwards adds in the same piece. “I think they need a little bit of everything, right? He’s an athletic center with the ability to step out a little bit,” the scout said.

Always thought it Knicks would and LaMelo Ball would make sense as both parties with big egos and high dreams but lately they seem to have drifted.
I kinda hope Ball does fall in the draft. He’s a solid guard either at PG or SG and has the size and ability to make it no doubt but does need to mature and does need to get better defensively
He also needs to get better at shooting. It’s only 12 games, but he was abysmal at shooting in the NBL (37.5% overall and 25% from three). The NBA is only going to be faster and have tougher defense.
Definitely going to need to get better, but having that experience against fully grown men at a good level will be a boost compared to NCAA
It’s too early to pencil in teams in draft slots warriors have same chance as pistons for the top pick so fo the cavs knicks have slightly worse odds so donf stress too much about players falling to a team yet or hoping gs doesn’t draft this guy until the draft lottery look at last year with the pels and Lakers for example
I doubt Wiseman will be used as a distance shooter, even by GSW. He should be able to benefit from the chaos created by a ball bouncing around near the rim.
