While Cade Cunningham has long been considered the top prospect in the 2021 NBA Draft class, league sources tell Jeremy Woo of Sports Illustrated that the Detroit Pistons will seriously consider Evan Mobley and Jalen Green.
"The strong sense I’ve gotten is that Detroit will explore all its options before committing one way or another, and that the decision on who to take is far from a done deal," writes Jeremy Woo at Sports Illustrated.
Troy Weaver is known as a contrarian with disregard for consensus thought. Weaver continues to be a proponent of the value of bigs in the modern NBA and was widely thought to be bullish on James Wiseman entering last year's draft. That thinking has some around the league believing Weaver could ultimately favor the versatility of Mobley.
