Unlike Bone did in this combine after his time with Tennessee ran up, former LSU Tigers point guard Tremont Waters didn’t do what he needed to gain a bit on his draft stock. Waters had a lot of impressive accolades on his NBA Draft resume with just a single season at LSU under his belt. He wasn’t the only former LSU standout that didn’t have the best combine showing either.

Waters was known as a defensive-first point guard at LSU last season. That was made obvious by his honors as the SEC Defensive Player of the Year for the 2018-19 season. Waters was also named to the SEC All-Freshman team and given All-SEC honors.

The three-point shooting ability is a big factor for the Chicago Bulls to watch in this combine. He did shoot well from beyond the arc in the combine tests, shooting at 100 percent on break right and corner left attempts. But that wasn’t the area he needed improvement through this draft workout process.

Waters needed to prove that he could shoot better in game action, which he did not do in the scrimmages at the combine. He also had the smallest wingspan and standing reach of all the guards at this combine. The numbers just didn’t stack up well for Waters at an event that was crucial for him to show up in. Granted, the measurements weren’t going to change here.
