Just when you thought you were safe to pack it in for the night, Detroit Pistons general manager Troy Weaver did the unthinkable; made yet another trade.

With the 38th pick in the NBA Draft, the Detroit Pistons select point guard Saben Lee out of Vanderbilt.

It goes without saying, Detroit Pistons general manager Troy Weaver is making a statement tonight in the 2020 NBA Draft.  Weaver is putting his stamp all over this Detroit roster.  Forget about the 2019 Pistons because none may be left on the roster at the end of the evening.

Weaver made a trade just before the draft getting underway, landing veteran forward Trevor Ariza and the 16th overall pick where the organization selected center Isaiah Stewart out of Washington.  That pick came after Detroit made a very intriguing selection with the seventh overall choice taking Killian Hayes, who most recently played in Germany.

Just when you thought Weaver’s night was complete, the newly appointed GM sent fan-favorite wing Luke Kennard to the Los Angeles Clippers in a three-team deal.  Detroit would end up with the 19th overall pick, their third first-rounder of the night, where they’d select a scoring wing player in Saddiq Bey out of Villanova.

So the Detroit Pistons must be done now, right?  Not so fast.

The Detroit Pistons struck a deal with the Utah Jazz acquiring center Tony Bradley and the 38th overall pick in the second-round for future considerations.

Bradley is a 22-year old 6-foot-10 center who possesses plenty of potential.  Bradley also adds much-needed depth to the Pistons frontcourt, especially if Detroit is unable to extend the talented Christian Wood; Bradley may be forced to play a much bigger role than he’s played to date in his career.  Over the last two seasons, Bradley averaged nearly 12 minutes of court time per game.  Bradley averaged 5 points and 4.6 boards last season in 58 games.

Next. Pistons select Killian Hayes No.7 overall. dark

Detroit used the 38th overall pick, selecting another point guard in Saben Lee.  Lee averaged 18.6 points per game, 3.5 boards, and 4.2 assists last season as a junior, playing nearly 33-minutes per night.  Lee also shot 32% from three and maintained a respectable 75% free throw percentage.
