NBA Draft liveblogging Part XII - Beautiful Daye in Detroit

By Rick Morris

As always tonight, we will lead off an update with a link to HOOPS DRAFTOLOGY 2009, our draft guide and the videos we posted of the top players in this draft. We'll also throw in a link to the CBS Draft Tracker.

The Pistons could clearly have gone in a number of directions, but versatile forward Austin Daye is the pick at #15. He's got to fill out and keep developing, but he might be ready to be a piece of the puzzle when/if the team is ready to be relevant again.

One wonders how far center BJ Mullens might tumble now. Also, our Senior Editor Jason Jones is more than a little surprised that UCLA PG Jrue Holliday is still on the board. For that matter, so am I.

Somebody give Dick Vitale a saliva test; he said that Curry will be Rookie of the Year. Amazingly, though, he didn't rip Rubio for the crime of being born in another country!
