2013 NBA Draft: Detroit Pistons Select Tony Mitchell


With the 7th pick in the 2nd round of the 2013 NBA Draft Detroit Pistons select Tony Mitchell, Forward, North Texas.

After the Detroit Pistons unexpectedly selected Kentavious Caldwell-Pope in the 1st round. They follow-up with an unexpected 2nd round pick.  Tony Mitchell played for North Texas and averaged 13 points and 8 rebounds.  Those numbers are actually lower than previous year when he averageed 14 PPG and 10 assists. Tony Mitchell will have to compete for a spot on the Pistons Roster and figures to be a back-up.

Here is what NBADraft.net had to say about his game:

Athletic combo forward with an intriguing skill-set … Runs the court extremely well and is a frequent target for lob passes in transition … Solid size for either forward position, standing about 6’8″ with a long wingspan … Displays the quickness/versatility to guard multiple positions at the next level … Blocks a lot of shots (averaging 3.0 per game at the time this profile was written) and creates a lot of turnovers … Really tough to score against at the college level, and has the potential to be an even better defender with added experience … Is a relentless rebounder both offensively and defensively … Already has a 20-20 game under his belt
