Possible Pistons draft picks: Tyreke Key, Guard, Indiana State

Tyreke Key is a very good basketball player–compared to me. He scores a fair bit (14.2ppg) and is efficient with his shots, but that’s pretty much it. He is built, which bodes well, but he is not an incredibly good player, which is what it takes to make the NBA.

His assists are awful, with just over 1.5 per game. That matches his turnover numbers. I hate to say it, but the MVC must have had a guard shortage for him to make it on the All-Conference team.

The silver lining is that he’ll probably go pro in Europe, according to a poll of his classmates.  Even if the Detroit Pistons have the last overall pick for whatever reason, there will be better options.


Isiaih Mosley, Guard, Missouri State

Isiaih Mosley is tall for a guard, which I like. He stands 6-foot-5 and checks in at 200 pounds, but since he’s only a sophomore he can easily add some mass.

Mosley doesn’t do much aside from score, but he does that very well. He shoots well over 50 percent from inside the arc, and 40 percent from outside. He is not the best facilitator or defensive specialist yet, but that could change.

As of now, he is a very good one-dimensional college player. If he improves to become more versatile, he could be a seventh-man. If that’s what we need by 2023 when he may declare for the draft, then there will probably be better players, but if not, he could be a decent pick.
