The Detroit Pistons will enter the 2021 NBA Draft with four picks and a lot of needs to fill.

Obviously, they will use their lottery pick to take the best player available, but they could use their three second-round picks in a number of ways.

The Pistons need shooting, rebounding and would like to continue to build on their defense, which was 10th in points allowed this season and looks to be the foundation of the future.

They could also use a backup point guard, as they only have Killian Hayes on the books for next season, though they will likely bring back Saben Lee as well.

The Pistons should avoid the free agent point guards and may instead try to find one with one of their second-round picks.

The Detroit Pistons would love to add another point guard this offseason to compete with Hayes and Lee. It’s unlikely they will re-sign Dennis Smith Jr. or Cory Joseph and even if they keep Frank Jackson, he is more of two-guard.

Tre Mann from Florida fits the profile of the type of players Troy Weaver has been acquiring and if he falls to the second round, would represent great value and a chance for Pistons to add more impact talent at point guard.

Here are Mann’s strengths and weaknesses as well as how he might fit on the Detroit Pistons.
