With their first-round pick gone after the trade for Blake
Griffin Youth

, the Detroit Pistons tried to make the
best of a tough situation on draft night.

The Pistons selected Bruce Brown of Miami in the second round Thursday and
traded for the rights to second-round pick Khyri Thomas of Creighton. Detroit
used the No. 42 overall pick on Brown. Thomas went to Philadelphia at No. 38,
and he was traded to the Pistons for two future second-round picks.

”Tough as nails, both of them. They can make plays,” said Ed Stefanski, a
senior executive for the Pistons. ”Two wings. … That’s what we need. We need
some young guys, especially that play that position.”



The Pistons sent their first-round pick to the Los Angeles Clippers in a
trade for Griffin this past season Cheap New Orleans

, so this was shaping up as an uneventful night for
them. They did manage to come away with two players instead of one, but
expectations will likely be tempered for these second-round selections.

The 6-foot-5 Brown, who averaged 11.7 points per game over two seasons at
Miami, was limited to 19 games in 2017-18 because of a left foot injury. He shot
just 27 percent from 3-point range last season.

”I’m good to go – fully cleared,” Brown said. ”All the medicals looked fine
at the combine, so yeah Cheap Los Angeles

, I’m ready to go.”

The 6-foot-3 Thomas averaged 15.1 points last season and shot 41 percent from
beyond the arc. He started 96 games in his three seasons at Creighton.

”Shooting the 3s and just defending,” Thomas said. ”I know that’s one way to
get on the court, and defending, that’s my thing, something I like to do.”

Detroit hired Dwane Casey as its new coach this offseason. There’s still work
to be done in reshaping the front office, but Stefanski said this week he would
have a lot of influence.

The Pistons have had mixed results with their last three first-round picks –

, Henry Ellenson and Stanley Johnson –
and after trading for Griffin, they don’t have a particularly flexible roster.
They also parted ways with a couple key perimeter players in that deal, sending
Avery Bradley and Tobias Harris to the Clippers, so there’s room for more depth
on the wing.

Stefanski said there’s more adrenaline when a team has a first-round pick to
make, but the trade with Philadelphia made the night perhaps more intriguing
than expected for the Pistons.

”It got exciting when it started to come together,” Stefanski said. ”It
looked like we weren’t going to be able to do anything Bills Cheap

, it looks like the guys were coming off the board, and
then it got exciting for us.”
