He can be a good one too. He plays alot like Rose. Less efficient but plays hard on defense as well just really small.

Nah, there's still a chance at some higher upside then that.

Wiseman, Edwards, Ball, Hayes, Okoro, Obi, Okongwu, Deni, Haliburton, Vassell.

Of all those guys Deni & Ball would worry me more as Pistons than the rest.

The strange thing is, we didn't really get enough NCAA to really know enough about a lot of these freshman, and then we also have such a large time frame since they played in mid March that its going to be equal to multiple offseasons of working on skillset and strength and some of the best players next year might be the guys who are really putting in a ton of work right now. Which may make current mocks wildly off from where things will be in October.

Okoro could fall, Hayes could fall... Vassell should be there.

We still need to trade Luke for a pick and get 2 out of those 3.
You need 2-way wings, 2-way shooting bigs, and you can't allow low iq players on the court. Assist/turnover ratio is crucial. Shooting point guards are icing on the cake IF they are plus defenders.
Weaver & Casey, govern yourselves accordingly!

He’s built like Billups, just needs to add strength. I like his upside.

I don't know much about this draft class at all but from my very limited youtube scouting, I'd like to go with either Hayes or Vassell.

He was my favorite early on just really fell apart for a while there and then got injured. There's definitely some upside though for sure.

Too bad we both fell in the lottery.

No worries we are getting Cade in 2021 and you guys are getting Bates in 2022. :lol:

Vassell is the guy we should pick. Although light at the center spot now as well.

PG - SF - C - BPA

Vassell and trade kennard for a pick and get the guard or center.

What a disaster. After a painful season, that's what we get.

I think the team is going to consider Hayes, Haliburton, Okongwu, maybe Vassell, I expect the pick to come out of those, Okoro won't get past ATL, I think Ball, Edwards, Wiseman, Avdija and Toppin go top5

I'd pick Hayes but I think they are going to go Haliburton over Okongwu

Hayes is my first choice but after that I'm going with the defensive mindset types

Hayes
Okoro
Haliburton
Okongwu

That order

seriously. beyond trading drummond and wood's emergence (who we might lose anyway) i don't think there's any positives to take from this season.

it's good we're starting our rebuild but not exactly in the best position.
