The interview process at the NBA draft combine can be grueling for prospects, as they shuffle between teams and front-office personnel, being questioned about everything from the proper read in a pick-and-roll to what their favorite childhood food item was.

The Detroit Pistons decided to really spice things up while also taking a step into the next generation of technology, adding virtual-reality training to the sessions with a crop of guard prospects during their interviews.

"They did a virtual reality where I was like in the headphones and goggles and I was making plays - see if you made the right reads and stuff like that. It was cool." Devonte' Graham told the Pistons website. "I definitely passed, I liked it. You press a button and it was like guys coming off screen and roll or if you were on defense, what should you do?"

Joining Kansas' Graham for the VR test were Tyus Battle of Syracuse, Rawle Alkins of Arizona, Shake Milton of SMU, and Penn State's Tony Carr.

"I met with Detroit earlier this morning," Carr said. "They definitely did some interesting virtual-reality testing things just to kind of figure out your decision making and things like that (with) the 3-D glasses. It was pretty cool. I actually watched my little brother play with them but I’ve never used them myself."

Despite the Pistons' first-round pick heading to the Los Angeles Clippers due to the Blake Griffin trade, Detroit has the 42nd overall pick and could look to grab a guard to develop, as Ish Smith's contract is up after next season and Reggie Jackson's expires in two years.
