  • The only people on Earth who wouldn't make that trade are Pistons fans... and that's only because Pistons fans know it's an offer that would never be made, so they have to make themselves feel better about what they DO have.

    • With the run on big men that hit starting at #8, getting Ellenson is a pretty good get. I'd prefer a stretch 4 to have a bit more reliable shot from range (sub 30% from 3-point), but that SHOULD improve as he grows into himself.

      He's big enough and strong enough to help clean the paint, and should have the ability to step out and not get in Drummond's way. I like it.

      • Good pick, I won't complain about anything

        ESPN's analysis:
        "The Pistons got one of the steals of the draft in Ellenson. For much of the year he was ranked in the top 10 on my Big Board. He slid late based on concerns about his lack of athleticism, but he's one of the most skilled big men in the draft. He can shoot 3s, has an advanced midrange game and is big enough to play center and rebound. His versatility should allow him to thrive and I actually really like him long-term paired with to Andre Drummond."
        Go Detroit Lions!

          I'm not a Pistons fan and I wouldn't make that trade. Ben Simmons as another LeBron is a joke right? He likely won't even be the best player in this draft let alone this decade.

          • Andre and it's not at all close.

            • The Pistons just drafted Brad Miller except Henry Ellenson is way ahead of where Brad Miller was when he was a college freshman. Hopefully he develops in the same direction as Brad did.

              • Half the Piston fans don't even really like Dre that much. The fuck outta here with that homer shit.

                  He already moves better than Miller and is way more skilled. Ellenson will be able to get a board and go.

                  Miller was a true C where Ellenson is a 4/5. Jalen Rose used Troy Murphy as a comparison and that's not too far off. I'd take Murphy's career as long as Ellenson ages better than Murphy did.

                  • .....for what it's worth.

                    Bleacher Report gave Pisons an A in drafting last night.

                    I long for a Lions team that is consistently competitive.

                    • Not a bad pick. I saw a mock saying we'd draft him but I didn't think he'd slip that far.

                      • It would have been nice if Valentine was there as I thought he would be the perfect play maker addition - that said he's knees are pretty crazy and he would be a health risk. I like the pick though. Probably best choice with what was available.

                          Brad's only a tiny fraction bigger in height actually (even though his NBA bio says 7') and played lots of PF too (remember the sac days). Ellenson is young and has a good frame... he could go big and be brad miller weight/strength pretty easily, but that said, in todays NBA he should stay thin and as mobile as possible with his limited athleticism. In the NBA of 15 years ago he would have been told to add muscle and weight right away, but speed is premium over strength now.

                          • Charlotte netted Marco Belinelli with this draft.
                            Awful considering how much Belinelli has been struggling recently.

                              the knee issues was a smokescreen .... somebody was trying to push him down the draft board.

                              I winced when I heard his name called at 14. He was close to making it to 18.

                              • Pistons missing out on some undrafted guys. GPii to rockets. Yogi to Brooklyn.
