Detroit Pistons’ Troy Weaver prioritizes upside, not age, in the NBA draft


Detroit Pistons General Manager Troy Weaver speaks during media day at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit on Monday, September 27, 2021.

Unlike last year’s draft, the Detroit Pistons are not in control of their destiny. There were no obstacles preventing the selection of Cade Cunningham as the overall winner.

It’s easy when you win the lottery.

It’s harder to draft when you don’t have a top 3 pick, and it’s impossible to tell who will be available when the Pistons pick fifth overall in Thursday’s draft.

Any movement in front of the Pistons in the draft order affects their decision tree. They will spend the next two days completing the last part of their preliminary design preparations. On Thursday they will be prepared for whatever happens.
