2013 NBA Draft: Detroit Pistons Select Peyton Siva In 2nd Round

With the their 2nd pick in the 2nd round of the 2013 NBA Draft Detroit Pistons select Peyton Siva, Louisville.

Peyton Siva was a member of the 2012-13 NCAA Champion Louisville Cardinals.  He is a senior point guard who can push others in practice and will only occasionally come of the bench.  Siva averaged 10 points and 7 assists in his last season with Louisville.  He is a little undersized but a good leader with great intangibles.

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

Experienced college player who was a four year contributor, three year starter and leader on a consistently successful team … Improved his decision making over his time as starting PG at Louisville … Very effective at running the pick and roll … Compact with a quick first step and some strong bounce … Plays with a lot of emotion, and when he’s going well can really lift the team from an emotional stand point … Played on teams that stressed defense, keeps stance very low to the ground and can get in passing lanes … Became a pass first PG after being known more as a scorer, willing to take on a role to help his team … Has leadership qualities, solid intangibles
