Here's how I think this draft is shaping up for the Pistons. I think they'd like Cousins or Favors the most, but I believe the major consideration in how much they accept giving up to get into a position to draft them is entirely dependant on how well they like Monroe, Aminu, and Davis. Possibly they might privately love someone like Udoh or someone else, but my guess is that it's going to come down to Aminu and Davis, since one or both of those guys is highly likely to fall to them. Here's the thing about Aminu and Davis - they're both very fine athletes who can really rebound and defend. If Aminu is projected to be a 4, he might be very attractive to us. What's the biggest issue for the Pistons? Defenders. A defensive frontcourt of Aminu at the 4 and JJ at the 3 - both being guys who could swap between the 3 and the 4, and who could both guard 2's as well, could be a great defensive building block for our team. Davis projects as a 4 or even a 5, but most likely an athletic and very good sized 4 who can protect the rim as well as just about anyone in this draft, and who'll rebound great. Again, that's an ideal building block skill for the Pistons. The truth is that both of those guys might be better fits for the Pistons big needs, rebounding and defense than Cousins or Monroe would be. Of course, Cousins low post play is also a big need, and it's a lot easier to find defensive presences at PF than true superstar low post skills in a center. That brings me back to the Pistons trading. If I'm right about this, and the Pistons really like Davis and or Aminu and/or Monroe, then there's less reason to give up our best trade asset - Tay. Also, Tay is a stabilizing player for our young team - but I hesitate writing that, since I believe he no longer plays a style consistent with where this team is and should be heading, a get up and go style team. (Sorry to be so tangental here, but Aminu racing up and down the wing with Jerebko and/or Daye with Stuckey and/or Bynum pushing the ball could be really great. Back to Tay here) If we like what we're going to get in the 7th spot, then Tay can certainly be traded for a really nice asset at a later point in the summer (e.g., a Duckworth type player - a decent physical center) or at the trade deadline.
