The 52nd overall draft selection has made a compelling case for the Pistons thanks to his strong play in the NBA Summer League.
“I know every guy in the NBA can beat me in a 3/4 court sprint. I know that,” Garza said earlier this week of his summer league play. “But is everyone going to run that hard in the game? No, but I’m going to.”
After earning the consensus pick for national college player of the year for the 2020–21 season at Iowa, Garza was drafted by the Pistons in this year’s NBA Draft.
