Happy NBA Draft Day! For all you Detroit Pistons fans, get ready to see what the team does with the #8 pick in 2013 Draft. Here’s a NBA mock draft composite for your favorite team. And here’s our latest 2013 NBA Mock Draft. The most ACCURATE on the whole wide web the last two years!!! David Kay was #1; he has the Detroit Pistons making a pick from the Big East. In both rounds. 8. Detroit Pistons- Michael Carter-Williams, PG, Syracuse, 6-5, So. With a young frontcourt of Greg Monroe and Andre Drummond intact, the Pistons should focus on improving their wing play.  The size and length of MC-W means he can play in the same backcourt as Brandon Knight, replacing free agent Jose Calderon. 37. Detroit Pistons- James Southerland, SF, Syracuse, 6-8, Sr. With limitless range from the outside, James Southerland could find a home at the next level due to his ability to stretch defenses. 56. Detroit Pistons (from LAC)- Jackie Carmichael, PF, Illinois State, 6-9. Sr. The Redbird senior could stick on a roster due to his toughness and work ethic. Walter Football- same as above David Aldridge NBA.com- Needs: Wing depth Joe Dumars has shown over the years that he’s not afraid to gamble (Darko Milicic, Andre Drummond) with lottery picks if he believes in the upside of the player. Muhammad, who left UCLA after one season, certainly has talent. Just a year ago, he was being touted as a possible top pick overall, and one so-so season with the Bruins doesn’t cancel that potential. He is a flat-out scorer who could compliment the Pistons’ inside duo of Greg Monroe and Drummond. The question is whether Muhammad can score and get his shot off in the pros when he’s playing against men who are just as big and as strong. The Hoops Report- 8 Detroit Pistons Michael Carter-Williams 6’6 185 PG So Syracuse 38 Detroit Pistons Mike Muscala 6’11 235 PF Sr Bucknell 56th overall, Brandon Paul Illini The Sporting News- 8. Detroit Pistons Anthony Bennett, SF/PF, UNLV. In what is becoming an annual tradition, the Pistons are primed to swipe a top-tier talent with a second-tier pick. Bennett is a tweener, but the Pistons will have opportunities for him to play both at small forward and power forward. Sports Illustrated- Trey Burke Michigan Wolverines, PG Burke could go as high as No. 2 to Orlando, so if he is here, he’s a steal. There are strong indications that with their frontcourt in good shape, the Pistons want to land a point guard to develop alongside Greg Monroe and Andre Drummond. Burke would be a popular choice in Michigan, but he is also perhaps the most NBA-ready point guard in the draft. He is the kind of dynamic playmaker/scorer the Pistons need to boost an offense lacking in weapons.
