How Svi Mykhailiuk has grown into his new role with the Detroit Pistons

While things may not have gone the way fans had hoped for the Detroit Pistons so far this year, they can find comfort in knowing they have a reliable youth movement on the horizon.

Svi Mykhailiuk was drafted in the second round in the 2018 draft by the Los Angeles Lakers. Svi, a 6’7 shooting guard out of Kansas, was seen as a potential sharp shooter and high effort player. However, there is a reason he was drafted 47th. He struggled to shoot throughout periods of his college career and was seen as a weak link on the defensive end while playing for the Jawhawks.
