In his latest ESPN mock draft, Chad Ford has the Pistons drafting Jared Sullinger with the No. 8 pick:
The Pistons need a center. They could reach a little and bring in Tyler Zeller. Or they can be content with Greg Monroe at the center position and add Sullinger to the mix. Sully doesn’t play above the rim, but he does rebound and has great hands. At this point, I think the Pistons would pass on trying to hit a home run and just get someone who could help a little.
I’d prefer John Henson, who’s still available in the mock draft, but this set of picks nears a scenario I fear: Sullinger or Perry Jones being the best player available when the Pistons draft.
