After selecting big man Greg Monroe in the first round, the Pistons took a flyer on SG Terrico White in the 2nd round. White’s strongest asset is his athletic ability, he possess the skills to jump out of the gym. This was a case where the Pistons took the best athlete available, it will be interesting to see if White can make the team or spend time in the D-League.
The Pistons headed into the draft with trade rumors swirling in every direction. Analysts has the Pistons trading up for Center DeMarcus Cousins, trading picks and players for the Timberwolves Al Jefferson, sending Prince to the Kings, and the list went on and on. After the draft was all said and done the NBA saw numerous moves, but none by the Pistons. Granted the offseason is still young and the Pistons have plenty of time to make trades. However, the draft and the trade deadline are when 90% of trades in the league happen. Maybe the trade rumors surrounding the Pistons were all just talk, or deals that did not make sense for the Pistons. Despite the inactivity I still anticipate the Pistons to do everything they can to trade Prince, and Hamilton. Prince is the most likely to be dealt since he has an expiring contract, but the clog of money and minutes at the shooting guard position will force the Pistons to deal Hamilton ASAP.
