Michigan Basketball Players Drafted to NBA

Friday, June 27, 2014

While University of Michigan and Michigan State University basketball stars Mitch McGary, Nik Stauskas, Adreian Payne and Gary Harris were all drafted to the NBA yesterday, the Detroit Pistons didn't get a first-round draft pick this year. Detroit Free Press sports columnist Drew Sharp says the draft didn't generate the level of excitement nationally that has become expected of draft-day hype.

"The media turnout was a lot lower than we've seen in years," says Sharp. And he says Pistons fans will remain just as underwhelmed by this year's draft.

"The best thing the fans can hope for is a diamond in the rough. There's not much to be excited about."
