Most Detroit Pistons fans will agree that the small forward position is the weakest spot for the Pistons. As of right now, only Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Cartier Martin and Quincy Miller are capable of playing that spot. After the trade for Ersan Ilyasova, the Pistons pretty much guaranteed that the draft and free agency will be to solidify the small forward position. Those options may have just become a little brighter.

In many mock drafts, there are one of three small forwards who will be available when the Pistons make their selection with the 8th pick: Mario Hezonja, Stanley Johnson and Kelly Oubre. You can now possibly add one more to that list -- Justise Winslow.

As Keith says, this is a surprise. There have been mock drafts that have had Winslow going as early as third overall. Nothing is ever certain in the draft. He could end up falling to 20, or he could go first overall. However, the Pistons options at small forward may have just become a little sexier.

Also, others who are working out for the Pistons today include...

The 2015 NBA Draft takes place next Thursday, June 25th, on ESPN at 7:00 PM EST.
