Pistons’ rookie Sekou Doumbouya plays first game for Grand Rapids Drive

Detroit Pistons first-round pick Sekou Doumbouya was assigned to the Pistons G-League affiliate team the Grand Rapids Drive recently and was able to play in his first game with his new team yesterday.

Doumbouya scored 12 points for the Drive, on 4 of 8 shooting from the floor, including going 2 for 4 from three-point range.

Doumbouya is not expected to be a part of the Pistons rotation this season. The hope is for Doumbouya to grow while playing meaningful minutes with the Drive.

Doumbouya recently played for France before declaring for the NBA Draft this year. Doumbouya was selected in the first round at number 15 to the Detroit Pistons.
