This draft is shaping up to where the Detroit Pistons
can't should not lose. They are in serious need of help at the small forward position. It is rumored that Justise Winslow could fall to Detroit. It is almost certain that Stanley Johnson will be available at eight. But what about Super Mario Hezonja? Won't he be gone?
Well, he might be. However, the Pistons may be using a few tricks up their sleeves (Arn Tellem -- Mario's agent) to keep him available...
Some teams expressing frustration with lack of info coming from Hezonja's camp. Feel they are "trying to pull a Kobe, to get him to Detroit"

With that said, I don't really see a scenario where Hezonja falls to 8. Detroit will have to move up to get him. 4-5-6-7 all really like him— Jonathan Givony (@DraftExpress) June 25, 2015
Hezonja's contract was negotiated by his prior agents in Spain, & thus the details (buyout, etc) are well known. No interview/medical though— Jonathan Givony (@DraftExpress) June 25, 2015
Tellem signed on with the Pistons to be a part of the executive team starting in August. But for the mean time, he is still Mario's agent and is looking out for his player's interest ... and, perhaps, his future employer's.
