#Pistons workout: Henson solid and Sullinger off board for ninth pick. Possible they could trade back into late first round for Sullinger.
I’m not sure whether Ellis is operating on real info, or just suggesting a plan that could work, but I definitely hope it’s the latter. If the Pistons could somehow get Jared Sullinger and John Henson/Meyers Leonard/Terrence Jones in this draft, I’d be thrilled
Without getting into specific team needs, the Pistons’ two second-rounders (39 and 44) are probably worth a late first-round pick – especially to teams wary of adding the guaranteed contract of a first-round pick. The Pistons could use one player with Sullinger’s skills much more than they could use two second-round players.
