As it occurs, the necessities for declaring your self eligible aren’t that prime, which could clarify the 2022-23 Pistons (who’ve proven some in all probability tongue-in-cheek curiosity). Haber checked all of the requisite bins being over 19 and having gone to a U.S. faculty.
From there, it’s only a little bit of paperwork to get added to the pool of accessible draft picks. His social media protection of the trouble garnered the eye of the Barclay’s Center social media staff who invited him to attend the draft in particular person.
