Detroit Pistons: NBA Draft Team Needs

    
June 18th, 2007

NBA Draft: Detroit Pistons

 

Record: 53-29, 1st Central

 

Draft Picks: 15, 27, 57

 

Team Needs: The Pistons have the luxury of having a rotation that’s pretty much set. Jason Maxiell has contributed some during the playoffs, but they may feel the need to add another big body with Chris Webber and Antonio McDyess up there in years of experience. Another body in the backcourt wouldn’t be such a bad thing either. But their needs could change if Chauncey Billups decides to test the free agent waters this offseason.

 

Who They Should Pick: G Javaris Crittenton (Georgia Tech)
