Although no big names decided to return to school, the Pistons officially can narrow their list of candidates for the No. 15 pick of the NBA draft now that Monday's deadline for early entrants to withdraw has passed. Two players still eligible are particularly intriguing: Gonzaga forward Austin Daye and Ohio State center B.J. Mullens. Daye, who's 6-feet-11 in shoes, has solid ball skills for someone his size, but at 190 pounds, he'll probably have to add bulk to have an impact in the NBA. He left Gonzaga after his sophomore season and decided to remain in the draft just in the past few days. Detroit Free Press
