    Detroit Pistons and Arnett Moultrie: Could they be a prearranged NBA Draft marriage? | MLive.com

    Arnett Moultrie | NBADraft.net

    He sounds perfect.

    I must admit, I never saw him play an entire college basketball game. All I've done is read the scouting reports and watch the youtube clips. But I really, really like what I've read and seen.

    Sounds like the perfect player from a character perspective. It sounds like he's got one hell of a motor. Hungry player. Relentless player. Real dirty work guy - which is rare for someone with so much talent. Tremendous, tremendous athlete too. 6-11, 233lbs, 21 years old. Great length. Great jumper. Led the SEC in rebounds (not Anthony Davis). Never been a great shot-blocker, but there's no reason he shouldn't be. Insanely quick. Runs the court very well. A three that grew into a four. And a guy that could probably play center here for us. He's got some polish as well. Great inside moves, super quick with them. Post-up game. Face-up game. Mid-range game. Great free throw shooter. Even shoots threes now and then.

    What't the advantage of promising to take a player - I never got that. What if you promise to take a guy and someone else who is much better falls through to your pick.

    Besides this guy is projected to be in the mid-late teens. Why promise to take him at 9.

    I can think of no positives with this type of strategy.............

    No, We didn't and we won't make a Promise to this guy.

    From my point of view, Drummond is better and he may fall .. key word here? *MAY* ..

    If Drummond doesn't fall. I have no problem taking this guy, or PJ3 or Henson or Leonard.

    But what I really don't want is picking Sullinger, or Terrence Jones, or another combo guard.

    The advantage is that he doesn't work out for other teams and participates in limited combine activities - - which Moutrie hasn't, and has.

    I don't think we did any such thing. And despite not participating in the first day of the combine, he's still working out for other teams, unlike Waiters (I think) who shut everything down. In a draft where everyone's stock has been fairly fluid outside of Anthony Davis' it just doesn't make any sense.

    It's all posturing, at this point.

    The draft-x comparrisons always crack me up. Draft-dot-net is even worse!
    It's like they pick the most obscure NBA guy to compare someone too in an effort to make themselves look smart. What exactly do they see in some guy's game that makes him the next Scott Padgett or the next Vincent Askew.

    What is the appeal of another stretch four with poor defensive instincts?

    So apparently this guy doesn't have a consistently high motor and has an on/off switch?

    Thanks but still what does it matter who works out for who? Once you draft him he has to sign with your team or sit out a couple of years

    I didn't get that about this guy from reading the write-ups on him.
    I know that "Pervis" Jones dude has motor issues.
    There's just so many of these guys who are all lumped together. Nobody has really distinguished himself other than that Drummond kid and I might avoid him like expired milk based on the fact that he's from UConn.

    sounds pretty much like a Greg Monroe copy - good rebounder, solid scorer, no blocks

    Monroe averaged 1.5 blocks for the Hoyas. Moultrie averaged .8 blocks for UTEP and Miss
