Matt Dery’s Daily Update 6-23-11
Joe Dumars with a busy night ahead, the Pistons President embarks on his fist draft under new ownership and a draft where he has some flexibility, picking 8th in the first round. Reports say Detroit could be in the mix to trade down and acquire more picks tonight. If they stay at 8, many experts feel that big man Bismack Biyombo, a freakish shot blocker from the Congo could be the guy at 8.
ESPN.com’s Chad Ford is reporting that the Cavs are trying to move into the lottery to land a third first round selection and have even talked to the Pistons about the 8th pick.
Pistons have 2 picks in the second round, numbers 33 and 52. Caputo and Fithian will broadcast live from the Palace starting at 6.
