2016 NBA Draft: Detroit Bad Boys Big Board -- Domantas Sabonis, Henry Ellenson tie to earn next two spots

New, comments

With big men largely off the board, it will be interesting to see where the voters turn to next. Unless they get really excited for Skal Labissiere or Thon Maker.

The 2016 NBA Draft is just 14 days away, and the Detroit Pistons have the No. 18 selection. Now you can have your say in who should make up the official Detroit Bad Boys 2016 NBA Draft Big Board.

Unexpectedly, we have a tie between big men Domantas Sabonis and Henry Ellenson. I'm not smart enough to know what to do, but considering Sabonis and Ellenson have way more votes than anyone else, we will say that they've earned spots 10 and 11. So now we vote for No. 12. there are no more face-up bigs to choose from, really, so where the voters turn next is anyone's guess.

Remember, this is not a mock draft, and this is not only selecting from the players people presume will be available when the Pistons make their selection. We are creating a Big Board, ranking NBA Draft prospects from No. 1 on down so that on draft night we know who the best player available is for the Pistons to select.

The poll will stay open approximately 24 hours. 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.

Vote now, DBB!
