      That satiates for the moment my desire to have Laimbeer as head coach.

      that wouldn’t be so bad. he was generally considered a smart player during his career, he just had a temper and was kinda lazy. the lazy doesn’t matter any more. the temper is the only thing to be controlled and it shouldn’t be too bad

        smart player?
        have to admit i didn’t follow his college career closely and never saw him play, but the numbers indicate that he took a lot of perimeter shots.
        for a guy who is so physically dominant to stand on the perimeter shooting jumpers when no one in the conference can handle him down low seems pretty dumb to me.
        we will see how things turn out, but i am not real optimistic.
        very, very talented guy, definitely.
        he just doesn’t seem to have a clue as to how to best utilize his talent.
        is he worth a gamble?
        maybe.
        but i would have much preferred “gambling” with a guy like nate wolters or a guy like mike muscala.
        but, we shall see how things turn out.

    Solid pick for the second round as he’s got first round talent. If we can get him going hard consistently then we’ve got an Anthony Bennett type talent at #37.

      That’s actually a solid comparison. If Mitchell would have improved at all he’d have been a lottery pick easily. Analytics have also proven that production as a Freshman is more important than production later in college. I’m definitely feeling like this could be a major steal.

    Reminds me of a shorter JaVale McGee, hopefully not quite the headcase though.

    I’m much happier with the second pick than the first one quite honestly.

    I am very happy with this draft…. I was not a big fan of Pope but overall, I believe if he max out his potential he can become a Paul George / Rudy Gay Type … 

    Imma a Homer at heart always want the best for any pistons player…

    Tony Mitchell, I loved this kid last year …to get him in the 2nd rd …is amazing and he is playing for the right coach

      wow people on this board really have no clue. Pope plays nothing like George or Gay.

    Deshaun Thomas makes this the best draft ever … or the PG from texas

    I’m very happy with the Mitchell pick. He has more upside than KCP. Still a slightly lesser prospect, but much better value.

      Haha that might be a bit of an overstatement at 56..

        It doesn’t much matter because it was at 56. But at that point, there are no good sure things left, so you may as well take shot in the dark, not take a crappy sure thing.

       yeah wtf. i’d rather take a chance on the 6’5″ pf from memphis who can get his chin above the rim.  but really is dumars really saying that siva is gonna be better than myck kabongo or cj leslie? both of those guys are borderline 1st round talent

        Certainly doesn’t seem so as every team in the league passed them over….twice. Not only are they not first round talents, they aren’t even draft-able talent according to league talent evaluators.

      You thought they would find another Amir Johnson with the 56th. pick? In this draft?

    Sac’s pick of Mclemore at 7 and the pistons pope at 8 reminded me of the lions draft when Steve Hutchison fell Seattle took him the pick before the lions  who then took Backus.

      Yep they fcked us in the ass and then again in the second round. Still I am relatively happy with the draft. I give it a solid B. If we scored either McLemore or McCallum then I would’ve given it a B+ or an A.

        Screwed up the first and last picks. Didn’t go after the 13th pick when it was available for dirt cheap. How in the hell is that a B?

          You kind of gloss over the fact they swapped picks in addition to those 2 2nd round picks.

            Ah, you’re right. That wasn’t included in the first report I read. Ok then, I won’t hold that one against Dumars. He can go up from an F to a D.

    Of course you have to take Mitchell with this pick.  Too much potential and talent there to pass on, but I would have like to have seen us get Mike Muscala.  I think he is going to be a very capable backup PF-C who will supple some “stretch skills” and a decent scoring touch.  A poor man’s Mehmet Okur perhaps.  We need someone for that role off the bench. 
    Would have liked to have gotten McCallum too.  Siva…not a mistake at his slot, but he has D-League written all over him.

    I was almost 2 for 2 with KCP and McCallum. Really think that’s who Joe wanted and thought he was one of the most underrated guards in the draft. I’m fine with Mitchell with Ray off the board but i was pissed off that Sacramento took hIm.

      I was torn between Mitchell, McCallum, and Rice. When two of them went off the board right before Detroit, I was glad that Dumars had the smarts to pick the remaining one.

    One of Dumars best Drafts….  On Paper

  • Tony Mitchell will be Shawn Marion with a better shot

    This is a great pick! This dude might have gone in the lottery last year. Low risk-high reward for the 2nd round

    Mitchell is very intriguing with his size, athleticism, and ability to step out and shoot a little. If he works hard, he could be a great forward for Detroit.
