NBA Draft Rumors: Markieff Morris A Potential 1st-Round Pick For Pistons

The Detroit Pistons held a workout with a number of potential first-round NBA Draft picks on Tuesday. Bismack Biyombo, Tristan Thompson, Markieff Morris and Keith Benson were some of the players in attendance, and what happened could change up the Pistons' plans for the No. 8 pick.

According to Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press, Morris performed the best out of all the players at the workout. This has prompted speculation that Morris may have jumped up the Pistons' draft board and put himself in contention to be the No. 8 overall pick. From Vince Goodwill of The Detroit News:

Going back to Ellis' report, he ranked the players in the following order based on what he heard: Morris, Thompson/Biyombo, Benson, Vernon Macklin and Jordan Williams.

Of course, one workout doesn't necessarily dictate what a team will do come draft day, but it definitely seems as though Morris has a much better chance of being the pick than he did before Tuesday.
