    should joe d keep the three picks we have in next years draft because we still need to get younger at center and small foward

    we have our two picks plus minnesota second rounder which should be very high

    A lot depends on what opportunities come by and the performance of the current players. If Hayes pans out we may be set with a small forward position. Maybe the trades for the center will be available throughout the season. It is too early to tell.

    The Pistons need a center now. I would want to trade the picks with some other Pistons to get that center if that is what would have to be done.

    If things don't change too drastically, Pistons 2008 draft picks would be around #25, #35, and #55. Here are some guys that might be in the draft:

    With the picks we have, at best they will be chips in a move to improve this season, or to move up in this or a future draft.

    I'm not sure we need an elite center to compete. How much better than Nazr is Ilgauskas?

    Are we turning this into another "we need a center" thread?

    9 freshmen predicted out of the top 16? And 8 freshmen selected out of the top 22 in the 07 draft? Kinda looks to me like the new CBA has become an NCAA-funded proving ground for youngsters that NBA teams might have otherwise pulled directly from high school. It's gotta be frustrating for the big program schools that dump time & money into top prospect recruiting.

    IMO...if Stuckey doesn't pan out in year 1, Drew Neitzel would be a steal at 27 as a true PG :D

    I don't know about the other freshmen but I doubt that Mayo and Love will leave USC and UCLA after playing only one year at their respective schools.

    :hoops:
