Default Detroit Pistons 2013 NBA draft results

The Detroit Pistons announced today that the club has selected Kentavious Caldwell-Pope with the eighth pick in the first round of the 2013 NBA Draft held on Thursday, June 27. The club also selected Tony Mitchell 37th and Peyton Siva with the 56th picks in the second round.

Caldwell-Pope, a 6-foot-6 guard from the University of Georgia, averaged a SEC-leading 18.5 points, 7.1 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 2.0 steals in 32 games as a sophomore last season. The 2012-13 SEC Player of the Year and an All-SEC First Team selection was one of only nine players in NCAA Division 1 to score in double figures in every game last season. Caldwell-Pope led the Bulldogs in rebounds (7.1 rpg), was third in the SEC in three-point field goal percentage (37.3) and recorded seven double-doubles. In his final collegiate game against LSU in the SEC Tournament, Caldwell-Pope scored a career-high 32 points including 25 in the second half.

A native of Thomaston, Ga., Caldwell-Pope averaged 13.2 points, 5.2 rebounds, 1.2 assist and 1.8 steals in 32 games and was named to the Coaches’ Freshman All-SEC Team. He finished second on the team in scoring and rebounding and scored a season-high 25 points vs. Ole Miss (1/21/12). As a high-school senior, Caldwell-Pope participated in both the McDonald’s All-America game and the Jordan Brand Classic.

Mitchell averaged 13.7 points, 9.3 rebounds and 2.9 blocks in 55 games at the University of North Texas. Last season he averaged 13.0 and 8.5 rebounds in 32 games while leading the Sun Belt Conference with 2.7 blocks per game. As a freshman, he was one of only two freshmen in the NCAA to average a double-double joining Kentucky’s Anthony Davis, the #1 overall pick in last year’s NBA draft. A member of the gold-medal winning 2010 USA Men’s U-18 at the 2010 FIBA Americas U-18 Championship, he finished his collegiate career as North Texas’ all-time leader in blocks (157).

Siva, a 6-foot-1 guard, averaged 10.0 points, 2.4 rebounds and 5.7 assists as a senior last season while leading the University of Louisville to the NCAA Championship. He scored in double figures in 23-of-40 games last year including 18 points and five assists in the championship game. A native of Seattle, Wa., Siva was named to the All-Big East Third team and the Final Four All-Tournament Team as a senior. He finished his collegiate career second all-time in school history in assists with 677.

What do you believe the player comparisons are for the ultimate ceiling, the ultimate floor, and the most likely outcome for each of our 3 rookies??

Pope:
Ceiling - Prime Hamilton + 3 point range + elite defense
Floor - Courtney Lee
Likely - Better version of Gerald Henderson

Mitchell:
Ceiling - I want to say Josh Smith lite, but I will say a more damging and bigger Thad Young.
Floor - Joe Alexander
Likely - Tyrus Thomas

Siva:
Haven't seen enough of him play to make a true observation.
