The Detroit Pistons hold the No. 8 pick in the 2015 NBA Draft. While it’s likely Detroit looks to grab the top small forward on the board as their pick (Justise Winslow, Stanley Johnson, Mario Hezonja), sources of ESPN’s Ian Begley say that the Pistons could look to bring back Hardaway Jr. to the state where he played his college ball:
Pistons have interest in Hardaway Jr.: If you’re looking for any clues regarding potential draft-night trades, here’s one: the Detroit Pistons are said to have interest in trading for Tim Hardaway Jr. and have tried to engage the Knicks on a deal, per league sources.
Brandon Jennings could be the piece that goes to New York for Hardaway Jr., ESPN reports. Tim Hardaway Sr. is an assistant coach with Detroit.
In two seasons in the league, Hardaway Jr., who finished fifth in rookie of the year voting in 2014, has averaged 10.8 ppg.
