New Orleans Hornets – Anthony Davis 6-11 PF Kentucky- The Hornets franchise will get a huge lift with a lengthy defender who might be the most versatile player since Kevin Garnett.
Charlotte Bobcats – Harrison Barnes 6-8 SF North Carolina- They could go with Thomas Robinson, but I think MJ will like Barnes and the star potential he brings.
Washington Wizards – Thomas Robinson 6-9 PF Kansas- He’s a great story and a freak on the boards, but will his lack of shooting range hamper his development in the NBA?
Cleveland Cavaliers – Bradley Beal 6-5 SG Florida- They want to move up to get him, but the opportunity for him to fall to this spot is just as likely to me. The Cavs really need an athletic wing to go with Kyrie Irving.
Sacramento Kings – Michael Kidd-Gilchrist 6-7 SG Kentucky- He will be the second best player in the draft when it’s all said and done; this is a steal.
Portland Trail Blazers - Damion Lilliard 6-3 PG Weber State- Prolific scorer in college has shot up the draft ...

Pistons President of Basketball Operations Joe Dumars did what Pistons President of Basketball Operations Joe Dumars does. He got out from underneath an awful move (Ben Gordon’s five-year, $55 million contract he signed him to in 2009) and made something out of it. This time, it cost him a future first round pick. Dumars talked the Bobcats into accepting Ben Gordon and a...
Waxing nostalgically — not so much poetically — is all Detroit Pistons have been able to do for the past eight years. Fond memories of the 2004 NBA championship team come and go, in and out, but they remain strong: Chauncey Billups, who led the working man’s team; shouts of “Sheeeeed” every time Rasheed Wallace [...]

The Pistons have a simple goal for Thursday's night draft. They want to find the next Ben Wallace with the ninth pick.
The goal is simple. The execution is going to be much tougher. Wallace was a unique player in NBA history a 6'8" forward who was the most dominant defensive player of his generation but the Pistons dearly need to replace his post presence, his shot...
Ten years earlier, Joe Dumars convinced Michael Jordan to take Jerry Stackhouse off his hands and send a younger, less expensive one-dimensional player back to the Detroit Pistons. That player was Rip Hamilton, who blossomed into an all-time Pistons great, learned to be a solid perimeter defender, and gave the Pistons financial flexibility. Fast forward [...]
Here is another confirmed trade reported by Adrian Wojnarowski in which the Pistons send Ben Gordon and a lottery-protected draft pick in 2013 to the Bobcats for Corey Maggette. The swap on a talent level is pretty even, but it’s more about saving money for Detroit as they will save nearly $15 million from Gordon’s [...]
