Need: Floor General or Scoring Wing
The Detroit Pistons are learning that Brandon Knight's skill set might be better used off the ball, meaning there's an opening at the point guard position.
This team needs a floor general. Marcus Smart would be the home run here, which would give Detroit a sizable and incredibly versatile backcourt. Both Smart and Knight can play on and off the ball, maximizing each other's strengths as combo guards.
A scoring wing would be plan B. Detroit doesn't have any scoring option at the small forward position. Otto Porter seems like a fit, though his lack of upside reflects more of a sacrifice fly than a home run. Anthony Bennett would also be an option, though with Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe clogging the middle, the Pistons would be better off with a pure wing instead of a combo forward.
Unfortunately, they'd have to reach for one in the top five, although I really do like Glenn Robinson III as a long-term investment.
If Detroit can come away with Marcus Smart or even Trey Burke, it would be as close to a home run as you can possibly get in 2013.
