It raised a few eyebrows last month at the NBA predraft combine when there wasn’t a sitdown with former Michigan point guard Trey Burke and the Pistons.

With an unsettled point guard position and a ready-made fan base, it was assumed the Pistons would be interested.

The Pistons, with the eighth pick overall, are very interested in Burke. They requested to interview him, but the league disallowed it.

So what about a predraft workout?

Just like other projected top-10 picks for the June 27 draft, Burke and his camp are trying to predict his lowest possible landing spot. With some saying Burke could go as high as No. 2 to the Orlando Magic, it might not make much sense for Burke to work out for the Pistons.

However, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Burke come to Auburn Hills later in the draft process as the top 10 starts to crystallize.’s Chad Ford released his fourth mock draft and projects the Pistons to select Syracuse point guard Michael Carter-Williams, with Burke going seventh to the Kings.

Ford on Carter-Williams: “(The Pistons) really would like a pure playmaker who can help their young guys get better. Given Carter-Williams’ significant upside, he might be a great play here.”

Ford on Burke: “Burke actually does make sense for Sacramento. He’s more of a true point guard than anyone currently on the roster, and he’s a winner — something the Kings need.”
