The Pistons will not have a first round pick following some bad luck in the NBA Draft Lottery last night. Detroit had the eighth selection in the upcoming draft heading into the lottery, but lost their pick when they ended up in ninth place. The bad draw resulted in the Pistons giving up their first round pick to the Hornets as part of the 2012 trade which sent Ben Gordon to Charlotte for Corey Maggette. New coach and president of basketball operations Stan Van Gundy said the results are disappointing, but not disastrous and that the team still has many tools at their disposal to upgrade the roster. The loss of the first round pick will give Detroit an additional 2.3-million-dollars to spend on free agents.
