2009 Mock Drafting the Pistons

New, comments

Recently I've been wondering, as I'm sure all of you have too, who the Pistons will take in this year's draft. Since we are under a month away from the big day, I want to leave you a list of all the reputable 2009 Mock Drafts around the internet and who they are guessing the Pistons will select.

Most mock drafts only have the first round, but I will list the selections from the 2nd round if the site provides those as well. What I have been planning on doing these final few weeks is going through the more popular mock drafts and analyzing the guesstimated Pistons picks. Stay tuned for those.

There are a lot of good choices here and I think a lot of them will depend on what kind of offers the Pistons have received for current players and what they might be able to get done after the draft. No matter what, I know whoever Dumars picks he'll have a plan, and I will trust that plan.
