Another former Panther has scheduled a workout with an NBA team ahead of this year’s draft.
On Wednesday, former Pitt guard Greg Elliott will work out for the NBA’s Detroit Pistons — his hometown team — he told Pittsburgh Sports Now.
Elliott, a 6-foot-3 shooting guard, joined the Panthers this season after spending four years at Marquette. The sharp-shooter hit a career-best 2.1 three pointers per game, hitting 42% of his shots from beyond the arch. Elliott started 36 games for Pitt, averaging a career-high 10.4 points per game. He put up double-digit scoring efforts 20 times this season, including a season-high 23-point effort against Louisville in a Panther victory.
Elliott grew up in Detroit, playing his high-school ball for Detroit East English Village Prep. There, he earned offers from programs around the country and blossomed into a top-tier prospect before taking his talents to Milwaukee to join the Golden Eagles. Elliott broke down his childhood and his experience growing up in Detroit in PSN’s Just Buckets podcast earlier this year.

In his collegiate career (five seasons) Elliott finished with the following averages: 6.8 points per game, 2.6 rebounds per game, 1.2 assists per game, 44% field-goal percentage, 42% three-point percentage.
Since his collegiate career wrapped up with Pitt’s Second Round NCAA Tournament Loss against Xavier, Elliott has also joined The Zoo Crew — a Pitt alumni team that will compete this summer in The Basketball Tournament.
