Pistons general manager Troy Weaver has played it coy, but the rumblings are growing that Cunningham will be the pick, barring a stunning last-minute trade down.
More Cunningham to Detroit indicators popped up Monday.
Cunningham, alongside his cousin and trainer Ashton Bennings, watched Monday night’s Detroit Tigers game against the Texas Rangers — a 14-0 win for the surging home team.
He took a picture outside the stadium with three fans, posted a short story to his Instagram account from his seats with the caption “Detroit, Michigan” and Bennings posted a short video of Cunningham reacting to fans chanting, “we want Cade.”
“Detroit showing mad love 💯💯,” Bennings captioned on his post.
Cunningham, who played one season with the Cowboys before declaring for this year’s draft, is from Arlington, Texas, so we’re not sure where his allegiance is … right now.
The 19-year-old is expected to be the top pick — USA TODAY’s new mock draft continued the trend.
The Pistons also own three second-round picks.
