    Pistons Select Isaiah Livers #42 Overall

    Just for you Guysir!

    Draft Profile:
    About Isaiah Livers
    Isaiah Livers is smart two-way player whose ability to space the floor, make decisions with the ball, and defend made Michigan one of the toughest matchups in the country until an untimely foot injury held him out of the Wolverines run to the Elite Eight. Considered a top-150 prospect in the high school class of 2017 following his senior year at Kalamazoo Central High School (MI), Livers managed to carve out a significant role as a true freshman though he scored just 3.3 points per game. Showing marked improvement in each of his four seasons at the collegiate level, Livers turned a corner as a junior under Head Coach Juwan Howard. Averaging 13.1 points, 6 rebounds, and 2 assists per game as a senior, he earned All-Big Ten 2nd Team honors.

    Standing 69 with a solid 230-pound frame and decent length, Livers has good size for a player who operated interchangeably between the forward spots, some explosiveness with a head of steam, a terrific motor.

    Doing much of his damage offensively as a floor spacer, Livers grew into one of the more reliable three-point shooting forwards in the college game over his four seasons in Ann Arbor. Flashing a strong feel for the game moving off the ball, finding the open man on the move, and consistently playing within himself, Livers may not be especially dynamic with the ball, but his ability to pick and choose his spots and be opportunistic stood out throughout his senior year.

    Playing hard on the defensive end, Livers is not the most imposing forward from a physical perspective, but more than held his own throughout his collegiate career with a strong combination of intensity and fundamentals.

    Advanced Stats
    Embracing a role unselfishly at the college level, Livers did not always get a lot of shots up some games but consistently provided critical spacing for the Wolverines and was very smart about the shots he did take. Over half of his attempts in the half court were catch and shoot jumpers which he converted for a tremendous 1.25 points per catch and shoot jump shot in the half court [86th percentile]. More than just a set shooter displaying a strong feel for relocating off the ball and even making shots at a strong rate off screens and facing up in the post, Livers was very efficient from the perimeter last season.

    A smart cutter who made a consistent effort to fill lanes in transition, Livers averaged 1.03 points per shot around the rim in the half court [34th percentile] but a more impressive 1.43 points per Transition possession [94th percentile]. While showing good anticipation shooting gaps for dunks in the open floor, he was not quite as effective trying to finish over length when driving the ball against a set defense. He did, however, show a feel for finding the open man attacking the rim often driving to pass more than score.

    Defensive Analysis
    An active, polished defender, Livers is not overly quick to slide with guards consistently or especially big for a power forward but possesses a terrific motor and feel for where to be off the ball. Faring better closing out shooters than defending one-on-one, he proved to be a very consistent system defender at Michigan.

    Showing some toughness on the glass, Livers did a lot of little things for the Wolverines on both ends after solidifying his role as a sophomore.

    Just for me lol

    I hate to say it but I was never impressed by him

    He was just a guy. He could sorta shoot, but meh, he's no Saddiq Bey.

    Although, I guess getting Bey light in round 2 isn't the worst thing

    Go Blue!

    Yeah, I won't complain about more shooting. You're the only other Michigan fan I know on the site (left anyway) so I had to give you the credit.

    OT: Dickinson coming back is huge, combined with the top incoming class. Juwan has it going!
