Anthony Bennett goes No. 1, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett get traded to the Brooklyn Nets and somehow the Detroit Pistons managed to have the biggest news on draft night.
But then again maybe I'm biased.
Rasheed Wallace is in talks to join the Pistons coaching staff, according to a report from the New York Daily News:

Normally, I would take anything reported by the Daily News with a large dose of sea salt but the report was also confirmed by Vincent Goodwill of the Detroit News:
Sources confirm report about Sheed possibly joining the #Pistons coaching staff with Mo Cheeks— Vincent Goodwill (@vgoodwill) June 28, 2013
Sheed has been very demonstrative about teaching the game. Almost as demonstrative about not wanting to coach…until now.— Vincent Goodwill (@vgoodwill) June 28, 2013
League exec: "If Sheed is serious, he can teach Drummond the game. He knows it." #Pistons— Vincent Goodwill (@vgoodwill) June 28, 2013
It was just a year ago many Pistons fans pined for Ben Wallace to join the coaching staff so he could mentor the Pistons two most important players -- young bigs Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe.
Now they will have to face the wrath of Sheed who has always been a great teammate, an incredibly intelligent player and won't accept anything but full commitment from anybody.
This night couldn't get better.
