The results of the NBA Draft lottery will be revealed Tuesday night. The Pistons have a 3.6 percent chance of winning the first overall pick, and a 60 percent chance of staying at No. 7.

Jerry Lai-US PRESSWIRE

The last time the Pistons picked seventh overall, where they have the best odds of picking this year (60 percent), they lucked out with Greg Monroe. That's a lottery win in a sense. On Tuesday night we'll find out where they'll pick Thursday, June 27.

Time: Tuesday, May 21, 8:30 p.m. ET

TV: ESPN

Pistons rep: Andre Drummond

It's going to be easier to get excited about mock drafts once the Pistons learn their exact draft slot this evening, but some of you might like to take a peek at Tom Ziller's latest at the SB Nation mothership. Assuming the Pistons stay at No. 7, he has Detroit picking a certain Michigan point guard:

7. Detroit Pistons: Trey Burke

I don't think Jose Calderon will stick around given that a new coach will be in place, Brandon Knight is being turned into a two-guard and Rodney Stuckey is always two seconds from a trade. So, yeah, Burke.
