Troy Weaver’s Detroit Pistons news conference previewing NBA draft: What he said

Detroit Free Press

Welcome to NBA draft week 2022.

Detroit Pistons general manager Troy Weaver will meet with media around 2 p.m. Monday for the first time since the draft lottery in mid-May, to preview Thursday night’s annual player pool selection.

The Pistons own the fifth pick in the first round, and the 16th pick of the second round — No. 46 overall. They appear likely to pick one of four players at No. 5: Iowa’s Keegan Murray, Purdue’s Jaden Ivey, Kentucky’s Shaedon Sharpe or Arizona’s Bennedict Mathurin.
