Heading into this draft the Pistons were focused on beefing up their front line by adding a big man with their first round pick. They spent the days leading up to the draft trying to move up to draft Center DeMarcus Cousins. Their failure to do so forced them to watch the Sacramento Kings select him with the fifth overall pick. The Warriors used the sixth pick to draft another big man with upside in Epke Udoh. With both of these players off of the board the Pistons took the next best big man Greg Monroe. He instantly brings much needed size, and is the best passing big man in the draft. Not to mention his rebounding and scoring skills will allow him the opportunity to be a starter right away. Maybe not the player everyone wanted, but Monroe has the potential to be a solid pro.
