Jaden Ivey joins elite company with hot start to Detroit Pistons career
Jaden Ivey is off to a hot start in his NBA career, which comes as no surprise to Purdue basketball fans.
Ivey, the No. 5 overall pick in the 2022 NBA Draft, is already averaging 17.7 points per game. In his first 3 games as a Piston, he scored 53 points, while logging 15 rebounds and 18 assists. Those numbers put him in the company of NBA great Grant Hill as a Detroit rookie.

Unfortunately, the Pistons aren’t off to such a hot start as a team. Detroit is now 1-3, falling 120-99 to the Washington Wizards on Tuesday, extending the losing skid to 3 games. In Tuesday’s loss, Ivey had 11 points, 4 assists and 2 rebounds.
Ivey and the Pistons will look to bounce back on Wednesday at home against the Atlanta Hawks. Tip-off of that game is set for 7 p.m. ET.
