Eric Woodyard of the Flint Journal recently caught up with LaMarcus Lowe, who just finished up his college basketball career at the University of Detroit. Although it’s a longshot, Lowe dreams of hearing his name called during the NBA Draft:
“I know there are still things that I need to work on, and the main thing is my body.”
Lowe wants to add another 15 pounds to his lanky, 6-foot-10, 220-pound frame.
Has been contacted by the Chicago Bulls, Milwaukee Bucks, and even participated in a pre-draft workout with the Detroit Pistons on Friday, June 22, in Auburn Hills.
The workout consisted of transition shooting drills, post moves, two-man games and a walk through one of Detroit’s offensive sets, which are the same that he ran in college with the Titans. NBA prospects Yancy Gates (Cincinnati), Reggie Hamilton (Oakland), Maalik Wayns (Villanova), and Jordan Hamilton (LSU) also engaged in the session.
“I enjoyed it, I feel like I got better and I learned some things,” Lowe said of the Pistons workout.
Lowe’s Detroit teammate, Eli Holman, probably has a better shot at getting drafted than Lowe (though Holman is a longshot as well), but Lowe’s length and shot-blocking prowess will undoubtedly get him a professional career somewhere. If he can add bulk to his frame, he might get more serious NBA consideration someday.
