Detroit Pistons

Who do you guys the Pistons should want and try to draft?

I think we are a talented team but i think we are falling into the danger zone which is from the 8th to 14th pick where you are good enough to not get a big difference maker in the draft but not good enough to be a contender.

Also i find this draft to be deep but the players that fit our team the most are going to be gone by our pick (Davis, Gilchirst, Drummond, Robinson, and Barnes).

Stuckey and Knight have been playing great so a guard at all is not a possibility so that throws out Beal( one of fave prospects), Lillard, Marshall, Lamb or Rivers. Then the remaining prospects we could take at our Pick would be the likes of Leonard who is to soft and slow to play next to Monroe, Zeller who doesnt play that good of defence and i dont see as a starting center in the nba, Sullinger who will be good but doesnt compliment Monroe all that well and Jones(both of em) as we have enough tweeners between Jerekbo, Daye and Villanueva.

Anybody have any thoughts?

Henson might be the best fit

Henson might be the best fit

But if I'm the pistons I would take Leonard and kinda have him develop another year and get another high lottery pick

I think they need either an athletic 4 or 5. I think Leonard is likely a bust, but Detroit has been so good in developing young guys that I wouldn't make that assumption quite so strongly there. Obviously, Davis or Robinson with some lottery luck would be ideal, but barring that, Henson might be the best bet next to fit next to Mornoe. This also might be a good landing spot for PJ3, as he could backup the 3 and 4 and come along at his own pace.

Either Zeller would be a good fit, u dont get atheletic bigs like that everyday. And it looks like these boys play with heart, dont underestimate that. Detroit is a lunchbox city we need a lunchbox carrying big.

from a fellow pistons fan...

...i can honestly say this team is hopeless. at the draft spot the pistons will get this year, we'll have to luck into a guy who turns into the next great draft steal a la dwyane wade or paul pierce. and with joe dumars' track record, i'm not at all encouraged. monroe's a joke. a fantasy freak whose stats don't translate into victories or overall team improvement. we sucked last year, monroe improves leaps and bounds statistically AND we add brandon knight and lawrence frank as coach... and this team is 20-33. and that's after being on a tear. the problem with these late season surges when other teams don't care, is they don't accurately predict how good a team is. we'd have to win the next 13 games in a row, just to be in play-off contention. for the 8th spot. with 'rising stars' like greg monroe, brandon knight and rodney stuckey, that's beyond pathetic. or maybe those guys are just completely overrated...

brandon knight's actually had a very nice rookie this year, but kyrie irving, he ain't. and that's the sad truth about the pistons' future. you get kyrie irving at 1 and brandon knight at 8. whatever mid to late lotto pick we end up with this year is gonna stick us with another pretty-good-but-not-great-guy just like monroe, stuckey, knight, ben gordon, tay, jonas jerebko, well, pretty much the whole roster. when you don't sign big free agents (or make smart waiver wire pick-ups like j.j. hickson or terrence williams) you better suck enough to get a top 3 pick. if you fail to do all three you end up with a team not bad enough to get a great franchise lottery pick and not good enough to win a play-off series. and that's the fans' definition of hell and the doom of this formerly great franchise. that and the fact they won't cut or trade austin daye, jason maxiell or charlie villanueva i.e. perfectly good roster spots going to waste on guys who show us nothing year after year and yet somehow are still on the team.

I think Terrence Jones would

I think Terrence Jones would be a good fit with the pistons. Jones is underrated to me as a prospect. He has the tools to be a point forward in the league. I think Sullinger could be a good fit for ya'll if he is still around which according to the mock he should be. He has that rugged, hard work ethic that you expect from a Pistons player. Him and Monroe could be a great frontcourt for the future

"terrence Jones has the tools

"terrence Jones has the tools to be a point forward in the league."

?????????? you are putting way too much emphasis on that 6 assist game. terrence jones got shaky handles, he looks nervous when dribbling the ball... he's right there with anthony davis handing skills. im not gonna get into it. point being, his chances of being point forward are slim.

This team is hopeless?

This team is hopeless? That's absurd. When Stuckey is healthy and plays 30+ mins they've been damn good. They could use a defensive frontcourt player and some time to evaluate if the extremely young and hard working Knight can play with Stuckey, but they are far from hopeless. With the right pick, I could see them back in the playoffs within 2-years at around the Indiana/Philly level at worst.

I'm not saying Jones handles

I'm not saying Jones handles are nice, but they are decent. He looked pretty good last year handling the rock when him and Knight were the focal point of Kentucky's offense. I'm just saying he has the tools. Like the mid air shot he turned into an alley oop for Davis against Baylor. He is a willing passer and with more improvement on his handles I think he could be a point forward in the league.

If we keep winning and end up

If we keep winning and end up with a pick outside the top 7 i would be fine with Perry Jones III. Its a huge boom or bust pick but if he reaches his potential it could be great. Im also praying that Jerekbos hustle and work ethic will rub off on Jones III. Jones is a better fit then Sullinger and his 17 point 8 rebound game against Kentucky gives me more confidence in him.

Royce White. In a bad draft,

Royce White.

In a bad draft, he is good. I like good players. They tend to end up making bad teams better.

I think it's too soon for

I think it's too soon for them to draft a shooting guard. With Stuckey healthy, Knight, Will Bynum and Ben Gordon, a two-guard will have no room to grow on that team. They would need to go with a forward. Either PJones, TJones or trade down a bit and grab Arnette Moultrie and snag a 2nd round pick or two in that deal.
