The Pistons Academy Rookie League, presented by Kroger, began last Thursday in Southfield with the Rookie League draft. Players performed drills and competed in scrimmages as the coaches and league administrators did their best to identify this season’s Rookie League stars. The goal of the Rookie League draft is to create the most fair and balanced teams possible so that games will be close, competitive and exciting!
