2022 NBA Draft Info: How to Watch, TV Channels, Live Stream, Start Time, More

The NBA Draft is almost here and Detroit Pistons fans get a good sense of the direction of their favorite team after the dust settles and the 58th pick. Right now, the Pistons rank fifth overall, but all eyes are on the Sacramento Kings and the four. Who will they take? Do they trade it? Can Detroit be persuaded to raise just one position to get their preferred player? Whom do they prefer? So many questions. But before we get into the more existential stuff we answer some easy questions.

Members of the Detroit Bad Boys staff will jump on the Motor City Hoops YouTube channel to discuss the NBA Draft in real time, and it can be pretty silly when we do that. There will be some swirling guests, but most will be on hand during the entire lottery.

You can read the details here.

NBA Draft Odds

As of publication, the current odds courtesy of DraftKings include picks such as: Jarbery Smith Jr. (-250), Chet Holmgren (-220), Paolo Banchero (-350), Jaden Ivey (-155) and the Pistons’ fifth option as a toss-up Are considered. The current odds are tight between Keegan Murray (+135), Jayden Ivy and Benedict Mathurin (+175).

Mathurin’s direction has been noticeable over the last several days, but nobody is terribly confident about what the Pistons will do. There are some reports suggesting that if the Kings can’t find the deal they want, they can take their preferred player Keegan Murray to four and the Pistons will be happy to take Ivy at five.

Will Jeremy Grant go into business?

The conversation about how good Jeremy Grant is in Detroit and how much he has to sell on him is in his entire tenure. It looks like the team is ready to move Grant to the right price, but who knows if that price is out there. Grant is not a pretty catchy piece to impress himself with the top-10 option, but there are rumors that he may be shipped out in some deal with the Wizards (10th), you can never discount Oklahoma City (12th), Atlanta, previously connected (16th), and Philadelphia is always aggressive (23rd).

As we discussed earlier, the cost of trading Jeremy Grant during the draft may not be available for use in signing and trading during free agency. Considering the number of restricted free agents the Pistons have connected with, including Deandre Ayton and Miles Bridges, you wonder if they want to keep a grant to help facilitate the deal.

How does the draft affect free agency?

Troy Weaver says the draft has no impact on what the Pistons do in free agency. But if he ends up with Keegan Murray at age 5, you have to imagine that it would give Grant an extra incentive to send him away.

The Pistons want to add shooting, athleticism and size to the front and back. He’s in contact with players like Jalen Brunson, though those words seem to be dead, Michelle Robinson and Dennis Schroeder.

What’s the Perfect Offseason Look Like?

I haven’t come across the idea that the Pistons will be able to add DeAndre Acton, although that seems to be of interest from both parties.

If so, give me Benedict Mathurin, a Jeremy Grant trade that nits Tari Jones as a free agent deal, and sell some cap space to a team that is desperate to chase Jalen Brunson and / or Kyrie Irving in free agency and take a bad deal for a couple of future options.
