The 2017 NBA Draft is just eight days away and the Detroit Pistons have the No. 12 pick. In case the Pistons trade up, down, or stick at No. 12, the DBB Big Board is the fans’ opinion of who Detroit should select.

Remember, this isn’t just voting on players who you think will be available at No. 12, it’s voting on everyone starting at the very top.

I will list the top 10 players available based on the Draft Express Top 100 Prospects list.

Frank Ntilikina edged out Lauri Markkanen for the No. 9 spot. Ntilikina makes the fifth point guard DBB has selected in the first nine spots of the draft board. After the disastrous year that Reggie Jackson just went through perhaps that is understandable.

Still, could this be the first big mistake of the DBB draft board? Here is DBB’s own Steven Hinson with a reaction to the vote.

Perhaps Steve just needs convincing. For the Ntilikina voters, what attracted you most?

And more importantly:

Who do you think should be next on the Detroit Bad Boys Big Board?
