Tristan Da Silva, 6’9 Colorado

Tristan da Silva could be a great candidate for the Pistons if they are able to secure a trade back scenario. Da Silva, a 6-foot-9 wing from Colorado, is less of an electric player than his teammate Cody Williams, but more of an all around sound, experienced option. That’s not to say that he isn’t talented, though. Last season, Da Silva averaged 16 points, 5 rebounds and almost 2.5 assist per game while having excellent success shooting the ball. He was 50 percent from the field and almost 40 percent from three point range. He has excellent passing abilities and a tremendous basketball IQ.

Tristan moves with and without the ball extremely well and is an elite catch and shoot player. He uses his length and speed well on the defensive end, staying in front of players and switching when needed. He isn’t the most athletic, but if Detroit whiffs on any sort of Brandon Ingram trade, and moves back in the draft, Da Silva would fit in extremely well with this team. He’s currently being mocked somewhere in the late teens.
