Detroit Pistons Mock Draft: Picks 11-14

100. Pick Analysis. Small Forward. Gonzaga / Indiana Pacers. Corey Kispert. Scouting Report. 11. player

This is another team that I do not expect to be in the lottery once the season is over, as the Pacers are much better than their current record.

Kispert is a senior but the guy can score and he fits the profile of the type of player the Pacers like in the draft.

Center. 12. player. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. Beşiktaş (Turkey) / Charlotte Hornets. Alperen Sengun. 170

The Hornets already have a nice core of young guys and may take a swing at a home run pick with Sengun, who is young but has already shown himself to be a versatile offensive player who can block shots and get rebounds.

There are a lot of possible fits here but the Hornets already have good shooters, young wings and their point guard of the future, so it makes sense to take a risk on an unknown.

Shooting Guard. Arkansas / Memphis Grizzlies. Moses Moody. player. 211. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. 13

Moody has nice size for the position and would add some defense and rebounding next to Ja Morant in the backcourt or off the bench.

He fits the profile of the type of players the Grizzlies like, as he is versatile and can rebound and defend at multiple spots.

27. Pick Analysis. Guard. Tennessee / New York Knicks. Jaden Springer. 14. Scouting Report. player

The Knicks would be ecstatic if the pick they are owed from Dallas ends up in the lottery, as they couldn’t have been expecting that coming into the season.

I feel like Dallas will eventually start winning and not have this pick, but right now this is how it stands. The Knicks need help all over but would love to add some more guard depth to replace Derrick Rose.

The Detroit Pistons are still holding out for a number one pick and fans won’t be happy if this is how it works out, but if they can stay in the top-four, they should be able to add impact talent to their promising young core.
