On Monday afternoon, the Detroit Pistons hosted what was considered a high priority workout full of prospects who the team potentially could select at the No. 9 overall pick at Thursday's draft. The attendees included Ohio State's Jared Sullinger, North Carolina's John Henson, Baylor's Perry Jones III, Illinois' Meyers Leonard, North Carolina's Tyler Zeller, and Kentucky's Terrence Jones.
According to ESPN's Chad Ford, Henson was the big standout at the workout impressing those in attendance with his performance.
