The Detroit Pistons are all but assured of a lottery pick in this year's NBA Draft.
That is somewhat of a "good news, bad news" type of scenario.
The bad news is that this season will end with another losing record, and another non-contending run through a dismal season.
The good news is that the only real way for the Pistons to once again become a contender is going to be through the draft, and a lottery pick, if chosen correctly, can help the Pistons on their way.
As it stands right now, the Pistons are likely to pick between the fifth and eighth spots.
However, of course, they call it a lottery for a reason.
There is always a chance that the Pistons could end up with a top three pick, or in the best-case scenario, the No. 1 overall pick.
