The Detroit Pistons have three promising rookies in Saddiq Bey, Isaiah Stewart and Killian Hayes from the 2020 NBA Draft.

All three have shown flashes that they will be impact players in the NBA, and Bey and Stewart have played well enough to deserve consideration on the All Rookie team.

Hayes has missed most of the season with a hip injury but he has given fans plenty to be excited about since his return, as he has played solid defense and flashed elite passing skills for someone his age.

The NBA Draft is basically a crap shoot, so for Troy Weaver to find three contributors it shows an eye for talent that should speed up the Pistons’ decades-long rebuild. This is especially true considering that two of the picks fell outside of the lottery, as Bey and Stewart now have to be considered the two biggest steals in last year’s draft.

That led me to wonder what the 2020 NBA Draft might look like if we did it again today. The top-ten would definitely be shaken up, with a few guys dropping out and a few new names pushing their way in.

But what about the three Detroit Pistons’ rookies? Would all three of them be chosen in the top ten if we had to do it again?

I can’t imagine that the Timberwolves would change their pick if they had to do it again, as Edwards has been one of the top rookies by any measure and looks like the frontrunner for Rookie of the Year even though the Timberwolves are the worst team in the NBA.

Edwards is averaging over 18 points a game, has some of the highlight dunks of the season and very much looks the part of the number one pick.

A lot of things will change in this top ten, but Edwards is not one of them, as he looks like the foundational star the Timberwolves have been seeking to add to Karl-Anthony Towns.
