#6: Detroit Pistons trade three 2nd-round picks to the Charlotte Hornets for Nick Richards 

The Pistons could use some rim protection and are going to need a backup center regardless of what they do with Duren and Stewart. 

Given that the Hornets may take Donovan Clingan with the 6th pick and already have Mark Williams, Richards could be the odd man out. 

Richards gets paid $5 million a year and nearly averaged a double-double this season in just 26 minutes per game while adding over a block per contest. 

The Pistons have plenty of extra second-round picks to throw around and Richards would fill a need without breaking the bank or costing any other assets.
