With the 8th pick in the 2013 NBA Draft Detroit Pistons Select Guard Kentavious Caldwel- Pope, Georgia.

After a some suprises and with Trey Burke still on the board the Pistons settled on the shooting guard from Georgia.  He is a shooter and the Pistons need offense.  This means that Knight will most likely stay at the point.
Caldwell-Pope averaged 18.5 points game and 7 rebounds.

This is what SB nation had to say about Caldwell-Pope:

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope was a McDonald’s All-American who was a Top-15 recruit in the class of 2011, so he has been on NBA radars since high school. However, after not making the postseason in two years at Georgia, he is one of the most anonymous prospects in this year’s draft.He had an inconsistent freshman season, but returned as one of the best players in the SEC as a sophomore. Despite being the only consistent threat on the Bulldogs roster, Caldwell-Pope averaged 18 points, seven rebounds, two assists and two steals while shooting 44 percent from the field, 37 percent from three-point range and 80 percent from the free-throw line.
