Discussion in 'Pistons and NBA' started by Slippy, May 14, 2013.
The draft combine is just around the corner. Any predictions on who will climb and who will fall?
This guy from CBS Sports has Tim Hardaway Jr. going in the 2nd round at #42. It would be nice if he was there at #38 for the Pistons.
I predict his stock will climb. I say he goes in the top 15. I think he played very unselfish at Michigan and has a higher NBA ceiling than a #42 pick would project.

The Greek is already sitting at #21 with a Y-U-G-E upside after being unranked in the last mock draft and I hear Danny Ainge who is picking at #16 loves him. He made it from Africa to Greece so you know he won't be pressing during the drills (unless they involve immigration papers).
Glen Rice, Jr. will be better than Glen Rice, Sr.
He could be sitting there at #38 for the Pistons...
I think he's gonna tear it up in pre-draft camps and end up being a late 1st rounder. If the Pistons could snag him at #38, that would be awesome!
He's got NBDL experience (NBA coaching). He stepped up his game in the D-League playoffs last year led his team to a championship where he averaged 25 pts, 10 boards and 5 assists (I remember watching this on NBATV. ...I'm a nerd!). Dude is a SG who blocks shots and rebounds and he shoots threes like his daddy.
He did some STUPID stuff and got kicked off the team at GA Tech (driving around drunk and shooting a gun. ...who hasn't done this kinda stuff?). In spite of all his buffoonery, he was still all-academic ACC and finished up the school year after being booted from the b-ball team.
...and he doesn't have narcolepsy.
Yea, Chad Ford has Rice at #18 in his latest projections.
So true. Shades of Ernie's quote in my sig.
Biggest stock risers in day #1 of the NBA combine:
Best two players I've seen at the Combine today have been Steven Adams and Rudy Gobert. Both helping themselves a lot here

Gobert is from France. He projects in the #11 thru #17 range.
Adams is the center from Pittsburgh. He projects in the #18 thru #28 range.
Neither would seem to be in the Pistons range at this point.
That's the boldest prediction I've seen on this board in quite some time..
Did Ford say anything about their shuttle run times?
I don't think Ford follows the NFL.
