THE FUTURE: How the Cade Cunningham-Killian Hayes fit could define the Pistons

The Pistons selected Oklahoma State’s Cade Cunningham as their No. 1 overall pick. And hours prior to the NBA draft ceremony, fans were excited about the mere possibility of Cunningham heading to the Motor City.

On a Freep Instagram post, Pistons fans predicted how Cunningham would be picked, as well as other draft expectations. “History being made and the franchise restoring itself to championship-caliber in the near future,” @icanjesbme wrote.

Cunningham may have been the star of the night, but other Pistons’ selections also were positive to the Freep followers.

Stay tuned Monday evening to see how the Pistons open free agency.
