First SB Nation Mock NBA Draft has Pistons taking Perry Jones

While some in the media entertain notions of the Pistons eking there way into the playoffs, the liklihood is that the Detroit Pistons will once again find themselves in the lottery.

This is especially true after after the Bucks traded the injured Andrew Bogut and the ghost of Stephen Jackson for Monta Ellis, Ekpe Udoh and Kwame Brown. And lottery means mock drafts and mock drafts means its time to go crazy at the selections other people make for your favorite team.

Well, SB Nation has unveiled their first mock, and has the Pistons selecting underachieving but talented Baylor forward Perry Jones with the fifth pick.

I must say, I'm detecting a little Texas-based bias in the proceedings as the mock was done by SB Nation NBA editor Tom Ziller and SB Nation Dallas editor Jonathan Tjarks. The two alternated picks and TJarks not only picked Jones to go fifth but picked Baylor teammate Quincy Miller to go third to the New Orleans Hornets.

And who did the Pistons bypass at No. 5, you ask? Just Harrison Barnes and Thomas Robinson.

Did SB Nation make the right call? Who should the Pistons have drafted in this scenario?
