Livers averaged 13.1 points, 6 rebounds and 2 assists per game as a senior for the Wolverines before his season was cut short by injury.
Livers fills a key shooting hole for the Pistons, who added an elite distributor in Cade Cunningham with the No. 1 overall pick. In 119 college games, Livers shot 41.2% from three-point range. He shot a career-best 43.1 percent from beyond the arc in 2020-21.
Michigan was a different team with Livers on the floor the last two seasons. Before his injury in 2019-20, Juwan Howard’s team jumped into the top five nationally and won the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament.
The Kalamazoo native helped lead Michigan to a Big Ten regular season championship as a senior before injury cost him a chance to play in the Big Ten and NCAA tournaments.
Livers is a versatile offensive player, an adequate defender and a strong rebounder. At 23 years old and with four college seasons under his belt, he should be a contributor for the Pistons right away.
