Breaking Pistons news and analysis of developments within the team and around the NBA.

Friday, June 19, 2009


The Pistons brought in a dozen more draft prospects this week. Among that group was senior forwards Leo Lyons and DeMarre Carroll from Missouri; senior forward Alfred Aboya from UCLA; and junior guards Daniel Hackett (USC) and Eric Devendorf (Syracuse).
There has been some speculation that the Pistons made a draft promise to either Gonzaga forward Austin Daye or Ohio State center BJ Mullens. I don't think the Pistons like anyone at the No. 15 overall spot to make any promises. I certainly don't see them picking Mullens, despite their obvious need at center. They're in a win-now mode and Mullens had his hands full learning the college game for one season with the Buckeyes.
I also don't think it's going to be DaJuan Blair of Pittsburgh. I think he's too much of a Jason Maxiell clone. Daye's body shape is similar to Tayshaun Prince. Do you really need two of those guys?
My feeling is if they draft a frontcourt player up top, it will be either Louisville's Earl Clark or North Carolina's Tyler Hansbrough.
