Pistons select John Henson in TrueHoop Network mock draft

1. New Orleans – Anthony Davis (Joe Gerrity, Hornets247.com)

2. Charlotte – Thomas Robinson (Spencer Percy, Queen City Hoops)

3. Washington – Bradley Beal (Kyle Weidie, Truth About It)

4. Cleveland – Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (Colin McGowan, Cavs: The Blog)

5. Sacramento – Harrison Barnes (James Ham, Cowbell Kingdon)

6. Portland – Andre Drummond (Sean Highkin, Portland Roundball Society)

7. Golden State – Dion Waiters (Rasheed Malek, WarriorsWorld.net)

8. Toronto – Jeremy Lamb (Sam Holako, Raptors Republic)

9. Detroit – John Henson (Dan Feldman, PistonPowered)

Patrick and I both agreed quickly on this. If Andre Drummond is off the board, Henson is the pick. He’s far more advanced defensively than anyone else on the board, and if the Pistons are going to make a playoff push – which appears to be their goal – they need more defense.

10. New Orleans – Damian Lillard (Joe Gerrity, Hornets247)

11. Portland – Kendall Marshall (Sean Highkin, Portland Roundball Society)

12. Milwaukee – Perry Jones III (Jeremy Schmidt, Bucksketball)

13. Phoenix – Terrence Ross (Ryan Weisert, Valley of the Suns)

14. Houston – Tyler Zeller (Jared Dubin, Hardwood Paroxysm)

15. Philadelphia – Terrence Jones (Carey Smith, Philadunkia)

16. Houston – Austin Rivers (Robert Silverman, KnickerBlogger)

17. Dallas – Quincy Miller (Connor Huchton, The Two Man Game)

18. Minnesota Houston – Meyers Leonard (Steve McPherson, Hardwood Paroxysm)

19. Orlando – Tony Wroten (Eddy Rivera, MBN)

20. Denver – Andrew Nicholson (Kalen Deremo, Roundball Mining Company)

21. Boston – Jared Sullinger (Brendan Jackson, CelticsHub.com)

22. Boston – Moe Harkless (Brendan Jackson, CelticsHub.com)

23. Atlanta – Royce White (Bret LaGree, Hoopinion)

24. Cleveland – Arnett Moultrie (Colin McGowan, Cavs: The Blog)

25. Memphis – Fab Melo (Red Coleman, 3sob.com)

27. Miami – Jeff Taylor (Beckley Mason, HoopSpeak)

    No offense but I really hope the Pistons don’t try to make a playoff push with this roster.. they will be stuck for eternity at the bottom of the playoffs if they do. Personally I hope they try to be a part of the next lottery because that lottery has quite a few studs like Shabazz, Noel, etc.

    Ben Gordon picked Meyers L in the players draft. Wish they would have got Monroe’s opinion. Henson slid. But so did beal for that matter.

    Marc J. Spears ?@SpearsNBAYahoo
    Perry Jones III’s camp has been worried he could fall out of Top 15, but sources say he had a “very, very good” workout with DET on Monday.

      Good, hopefully we take him! If not, I won’t cry myself to sleep if we get Henson…btw according to Ford of ESPN Henson stood out yesterday, so idk where Spears is getting his sources from. Maybe both of them did well enough to be considered. Only thing that scares me is Jones III said he didn’t know how he would fit with this team..that’s not the greatest sign
