    Excellent draft, Stewart is a PF. He can play small ball center. He’s and old school PF who can step out on D and O. He is absolutely capable of starting being a double double force. S Bey can start at SF now. He is a shooter who plays D. Solid team guy good size. Hayes is the youngster with huge upside. He’s a big PG, true PG. Who can score and get his own shot. Needs to go right. NBA will teach him to trust his right. Everywhere he’s been. He’s never needed to use it really. He will now. Halliburton is the most ready in this draft. Hayes 4-5 yrs down the rd. Could be better. Pistons had excellent draft. This is a great start to a Rebuild. Next yrs draft is best in yrs, deep. So get ready for Rose and Griffin getting moved. I would think OKC would love to have Griffin come home. Lead the team back to contention. And end his career there. OKC has plenty of picks. Rose and Griffin can bring back a nice haul. Future looks good in Detroit.

      Thats why the Kings let Bogey go. They got a ton of cap flexibility now and they haven’t got any worse.

    Rose & Griffin definitely are gone. Boston has a huge exception now so if Griffin establishes he’s healthy, Boston might make a move.

  3. Can’t wait to see Detroit first round prospects perform on the court in the upcoming season
