The Detroit Pistons have developed a unique way of testing players at the 2018 NBA Scouting Combine that involves virtual reality technology.

Per The Athletic's James L. Edwards III, the Pistons are putting players through simulations with virtual reality goggles as a way to determine how they would respond to hypothetical in-game moments.

"It was interesting," South Carolina guard Brian Bowen II said. "It was out of 12 questions, and I think I got 11 or 10 right. It was good feedback."

SMU guard Shake Milton told Edwards the simulations had prospects "pick the right answer" in situations with players shown on a basketball court. 

The Pistons are sparing no expense in their draft preparation, though they will have to wait before making a pick. Their only selection is at No. 42 overall in the second round.
