2014 NBA Draft Preview

The Pistons only have one pick going into tonight's draft, and unless things change they'll be waiting until pick #38 to make a selection.  While things may be a bit boring from a Pistons standpoint, the draft figures to provide plenty of entertainment, as the 36 hours leading up to it have offered deals and rumors galore.  In the last day and a half, the Knicks dealt Tyson Chandler and Raymond Felton to the Mavs for Jose Calderon, Shane Larkin, Wayne Ellington and the 34th and 51st picks, and the Nuggets acquired Arron Afflalo from Orlando for Evan Fournier and the 56th pick tonight.  Other rumors about a variety of picks and players have been swirling, and I'm sure there will be a myriad of deals completed throughout the afternoon and the evening.

The draft has been the subject of attention around here for the last few months, and I've covered several players who could be around when the Pistons pick, and a few who are available in the range of the pick Detroit gave to Charlotte.  You can find write-ups of every player I've scouted in the Big Board, which is in the tabs at the top of the page and a link to my final mock draft on the home page.  I would also suggest taking a look at some of the players Joe Dexter of Pistons Palace has broken down leading up to the draft.  Check them out here:

Due to a work commitment, I likely won't be home until the draft is just about over, so expect a reaction to the Pistons pick and all of the draft happenings some time this weekend.  Enjoy!
