39. Detroit Pistons
Mike Scott | PF | Virginia
Scott is another player who has been moving up draft boards with excellent workouts. Several teams said he has outplayed several higher-ranked prospects in their workouts, and it’s clear Scott is getting some looks late in the first round.
44. Detroit Pistons (via Houston)
Miles Plumlee | PF | Duke Plumlee’s stock also has risen dramatically over the past month. Despite his pedestrian numbers at Duke, teams are intrigued with his elite athletic abilities and rebounding. Could be the next Jeff Foster.
Simply, I’d be thrilled with this outcome.
I really like Mike Scott. He might not possess ideal size and athleticism, but he plays hard, smart, and most importantly, well.
I don’t expect Plumlee, who has great athleticism and size but lacks skills, to be around for the 39th pick, but I’d like him even there. If he accepts a dirty-work role, he could be very valuable.
