Re: Players The Pistons Might Draft Next Season
I would absolutely love to get Corey Brewer but he will be long gone by the 15th pick, or whatever pick around there we end up with. He's the player we have needed for a few years now. A slasher, scorer off the bench, and he can play great defense too. I would consider trading up just to get him around 6 thru 8, where he will likely be picked, unless his stock climbs even more during the Pre-Draft camp or individual work outs.
Acie Law would be good too. He was projected 10 to 14 a few weeks ago, but has dropped to 20 on NBADraft.net. If he slips for some reason that would be the pick for me. He will most likely be a starting Point guard in the NBA eventually. And he could learn alot from Chauncey, and maybe Lindsey if he doesn't retire after this season.
Other than Acie Law I don't like the other choices at PG. Taurean Green is the best second option I would think, but I'm not sure he will be as effective in the NBA, and I think he should have stayed in School one more year to develope his PG skills. So I would go for wings, and bigs after that. All though there is not alot of them I like either.
One guy I do like for us around those picks (Likely the second 1st Rd. Pick), is Marcus Williams from Arizona. I think he's going to be a good player, and I think he's ready to contribute off the bench right away. 6''6 Combo guard, could even play some SF. Draft.net says he is like Penny Hardaway, which I think is a decent comparison from what I have seen.
Don't like Josh McRoberts. Couple other guys that might be alright to look at are Arron Afflalo, Al Thornton, Spencer Hawes, and Aaron Gray. Even Alando Tucker for the second first round pick wouldn't be bad.
