2016 NBA Draft: Detroit Bad Boys Big Board launches

New, comments

Our daily poll will help determine who the Pistons should pick at the 2016 NBA Draft on June 23.

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

The 2016 NBA Draft is right around the corner, just 22 days away, and the Detroit Pistons have the No. 18 selection. But who should they pick? Even saying the "best player available" means different things to different people. Is it the player ready to contribute right away? Plays the biggest position of need? Is the highest-ceiling prospect who could pay off years down the line?

Now you can have your say in who should make up the official Detroit Bad Boys 2016 NBA Draft Big Board.

The first vote was held yesterday, and Ben Simmons won in a landslide, receiving more than 50 percent of the vote (I promise! Though I actually saved over the old poll when trying to create the new one for today).

Finishing second was Brandon Ingram, but do all those Simmons voters agree Ingram should be No. 2 on the DBB Big Board? Or has Jamal Murray or Kris Dunn overtaken him?

Voting will end tomorrow morning. Please lobby for your favorite player in the comments below.

I will put 15 names on each poll based on Chad Ford's list of top 100 prospects. That should suffice for a while, but it might get dicey later in round one when the talent base gets flatter and people are more willing to take risks. If you believe a player who should be included in an upcoming poll is missing then make it known in the comments and I will try and include them so that people can always select the person they want.

If readers want a big board featuring the entire first round that means we would have to double up the vote-getters for a handful of days in order to leave enough time before the draft to have 30 names featured.
