NBA draft 2014: Mocking the Pistons' second-round pick

New, comments

A look at all of the second round mock drafts and who the Pistons might take at No. 38, because it's the only pick they have.

USA TODAY Sports

All was not lost on Tuesday night at the 2014 NBA draft lottery. Despite the fact the Pistons were forced to give up their first round pick to the Charlotte Hornets, the Pistons still have the 38th overall pick!

[I'll give you a moment to bottle your excitement.]

As Matt pointed out, some big names have dropped to No. 38 and beyond in the draft, so the Pistons should be able to find a productive player if they're diligent about it.

Below is a roundup of the mock drafts I could find to date, predicting who the Pistons might take with their first and only pick in the NBA Draft (barring a trade):
