As expected and don't really care that much tbh. The spread between 1-7 is pretty thin.
So I'd say Hayes or Hailburton will be a Piston.

This means we're officially out of the Lamelo sweepstakes?

I think I'm ok with that. I liked Halli and Hayes anyways

Hopefully we can get Hayes need to see what it look like when all is said and done but dont think anyone ahead of us is dying for a PG and Lamelo should go before him

I guess I should be happy we aren't drafting 9th. I wish I could say I was surprised we dropped.

Yeah it figures. To be honest, I don’t really care with this draft that much.

If Ball is still on the board and the Knicks want him, collect a bounty and swap picks.

If thats the case(huuuuuuuuuuugggeeee doubt)I'll be happy as hell. He is exactly who I want.

That means I'll have to watch him develope on another team, or the Pistons will pass on him if he is available.

So next year one of two things are going to happen in the supposed monster draft.

Piatons win to many games and end up with a terrible pick, or lose a ton of games, and end up with the worst possible pick for their position.

Everything will depend on the Warriors pick: if they trade it LaMelo can go 2nd and Hayes 4th.

I dont see why Hayes wouldn't be there to be honest. Only person I really wanted at the top was Edwards so everything will be fine for us with good options.

I would think Bulls would be all over a guy like Okoro. They need a wing, defense and ball handling. Coby White was looking pretty good last year too.

I kinda changed my predictions already cause I'm thinking Charlotte wouldn't pass on Ball if hes there given his name hype and all.

That's some BS. Every conference rival we out-tanked ended up ahead of us. Minny has picked top 3 for like 15yrs straight, how are they not good yet.

For those of you hoping for a point guard, it's quite likely that the Pistons will have their choice of Hayes and Haliburton with the 3 teams directly ahead of them having already drafted their point guard of the future so it should work out fine. The problem with not getting one of the lottery picks is that this eliminates any trade down possibility most likely.
