NBA Draft Lottery Preview

Posted May 20th, 2014 @ 10:46am

Tuesday night will be a very significant night for Stan Van Gundy and the beginning of his regime.

Either the Detroit Pistons will pick in the top eight of the 2014 NBA Draft, or they will lose their first round pick altogether.

Their first round pick is top eight protected this season, and No. 1 protected in 2015. If they fall out of the top eight, their draft pick goes to the Charlotte Bobcats ... err ... Hornets. Right??

The Pistons will keep their pick if they land at No. 1, 2, 3 or 8 in the lottery. Confused?
