BIG MAN GUARANTEE?
One of the top NBA draft sites insists that the Pistons have made a guarantee to Ohio State freshman center B.J. Mullens that he's their guy if he's available with the No. 15 pick.
Ordinarily, I would quickly dismiss such talk and I am skeptical about this one, too. But I do remember how the talk two years ago was that the Pistons were enamored with Rodney Stuckey and that turned out to be true.
Giving the current rumor more credence is the Mullens' agent is Andy Miller, who also represents Chauncey Billups and Antonio McDyess. Joe Dumars and Miller have a very solid relationship, so it wouldn't shock if the Pistons gave Miller some sort of indication that they really liked Mullens.
Of course, we won't know for sure until Thursday night.
