Johnson's suit catches eyes at Pistons' news conference

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) Stanley Johnson had already brought attention to himself when - after being selected by the Detroit Pistons with the eighth pick - he declared himself to be the best player in the draft.

Then there was his introductory news conference at the Palace on Saturday, when he showed up wearing a gaudy pink suit.

"At the draft, my suit didn't go as planned, to start off with. So the designer I originally had, I fired him," Johnson said. "So I had to go to a new designer who had to get a suit ready in about 16 to 24 hours. And of course, the only colors that I could pick is the suit that was available, so I just tried to make it work. I thought it would be more of a purple than this."
