So the Pistons passed on Trey Burke to take Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. WTF! No disrespect to KCP but Trey Burke is a money player. He will have a better NBA career than KCP period. Joe Dumars screwed up tonight.

On a side note this reminds me of the Lions draft in April. They took potential over proven goods. And it is “avious” on “evious” crime. The Lions should have taken Barkevious Mingo over Ziggy Ansah. Instead they took potential over proven goods. I’ve lived here my whole life. Something tells me the Pistons passing on Trey Burke and the Lions passing on Barkevious Mingo will become old bits come 2023.
