keep the 25th pick and draft a raw euro prospect that can stay overseas for one or two years while detroits roster thins down some in 04'. though they are working out guards like gaines and bell, so maybe there is a trade involving atkins down the line? who knows, his salary is rather high for such a streaky shooter and non-passing point guard. i would like to see the 25th pick be one of the international scouts picks with a potential sleeper euro but i would also be happy to see a young pg come in and atkins along with his salary out the door.

My gut tells me they'll keep the #25 pick and take a point guard. Some decent prospects will still be on the board. But c'mon, guys, the 58th pick is a throwaway. Can anyone find a case where the last player in any draft stuck in the league?

There's no doubt in my mind that the Pistons will send the #25 pick to Sacramento. They should draft Melo or Darko with the #2 pick and at #58, maybe Steve Blake or Marcus Hatten depending on who's left.

Wasn't Manu Ginobili #57?

I am thinking that, because of the depth of this draft in 3rd tier players, that Joe keeps the pick, and takes either a Euro to stash away (think Diaw, Khyrapa or maybe even Anderson V.), a hike-schooler (Perkins, Lang, or Charlie V.), or perhaps a backup PG (I would love to see Atkins gone). Realisticly Detroits pick next year should be not be better than 20 next season, so you should really take a chance and keep it. It's a small risk, but I would lean toward the Eurostash method.

As far as their last pick, this draft is one that may produce a decent player (down the road anyway) at that spot. I would be thinking high-risk, high-reward with that pick. Again maybe a decent Euro slips and then gets stashed.

Also, from the late picks that produce category, it was just two years ago that Detroit got Memo. 2nd rounders can be valuable in the right GM's hands.
