2016 NBA Draft: Detroit Bad Boys Big Board -- Ivica Zubac a surprise winner of vote

New, comments

Detroit Pistons fans really want a big man, apparently.

The 2016 NBA Draft is just nine 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.

Apologies for the recent radio silence as real life obligations intruded in the daily poll schedule. The last poll available was a surprise, with Ivica Zubac getting a sudden surge of interest and winning the vote. Zubac makes the fourth big man in a row to win the vote. Close behind Zubac was another big man, Skal Labissiere. Looks like our run on big men might continue. Or maybe we'll finally wise up and realize that Wade Baldwin might be really, really good on both ends of the floor.

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!
