Poll: 2013 NBA Draft Take Two (Pick No. 8)

Drafting players is far from an exact science, and many a GM has been second-guessed for his draft night decisions. I’m willing to bet that every team executive has at least one pick that he would like a mulligan for. While life, and the NBA, doesn’t allow for such opportunities, we at Hoops Rumors decided it would be fun to give our readers a second take at picking players, complete with the benefit of hindsight.

The first NBA Draft lottery picks we’re tackling is 2013’s, the year that the Cavaliers surprised quite a few people when they nabbed UNLV forward Anthony Bennett with the No. 1 overall pick. Quite a number of talented players were in that year’s player pool, including Victor OladipoNerlens NoelGiannis Antetokounmpo, and Rudy Gobert, just to rattle off a few.

In the days ahead, we’ll be posting a series of reader polls that will ask you to vote on the player whom you believe should have been selected with each pick in the 2013 Draft lottery. We’ll continue onward with the Pistons, who held the No. 8 overall pick that season. Readers, you are now on the clock! Cast your vote for Detroit’s pick and check back tomorrow night for the results, as well as for your chance to vote for whom the Jazz should have taken with the pick they traded for at No. 9. But don’t limit yourself to a simple button click. Take to the comments section below and share your thoughts on the pick and why you voted the way that you did. Also, if I fail to list a player who you think should be selected, feel free to post that in the comments section and I’ll be certain to tally those votes as well.

Draft Results thus far:

  1. Cavaliers: Giannis Antetokounmpo
  2. Magic: Victor Oladipo
  3. Wizards: Nerlens Noel
  4. Hornets: Rudy Gobert
  5. Suns: Michael Carter-Williams
  6. 76ers: Ben McLemore
  7. Kings: Mason Plumlee

    The Pistons took a pass on University of Michigan point guard Trey Burke in real life. Would they do the same if they had a do-over?

  2. lolol

    Schroder is guna be a superstar and everyone here will feel stupid

  3. Ryan

    Plumlee at 8 continues the Kings tradition of bad picks.

  4. Robert Garfinkle

    It would be interesting to repeat this exercise for different drafts 5-6 years out, as well as three years out, and compare them. For example, I see someone’s comment about Schroder being left on the board at this point. I’ll make a prediction and pitch for Shabazz Muhammed, as someone who watches a lot of Wolves basketball. I predict a breakout year for him, and I expect him to be a very solid pro going forward, unstoppable offensively–Sixth Man of the Year candidate, maybe even borderline All-Star.

      Funny you should mention this… Thanks to the positive feedback and reader participation, we’re definitely going to do this again with a different draft. I’ll be calling for a vote for which one we’ll tackle next as the lottery picks wind down.

      • will

        you shud go backwards like next one do 2012

  5. lolol

    Robert G. That comment was the best one I’ve seen on all these lottery throwbacks.. great idea !

  6. Matt

    I’d just stick with KCP, tbh. We desperately need wings and I really like his potential as a guy who can get 16+ ppg while playing really good defense. He fits what we currently need.

  7. will

    KCP was picked on his shooting havnt seen much evidence on that tho tbh great d tho. Would much rather have shroeder all star potential that one. yall are sleeping on dieng as well 2 way player who can stretch it out for a solid mid range J

  8. Oryan99

    As a Cavs fan I watched Schrooder in the E. Conference Finals. Maybe it was a bad series but he showed nothing with his sloppy, out of control play that makes me think of him as a future all star. Could be a bad series though
