Cade Cunningham was the first overall pick of the 2021 NBA Draft, and the Pistons are pinning their hopes on his future success to move forward as a franchise. He’s struggled with injuries at times, but has shown flashes of his immense talent and potential. Bruce Brown has been Detroit’s best second round pick since our website came into existence.

(There wasn’t a clear answer for the best draft pick, but for now, Cade Cunningham seems to be the answer. Sekou Doumbouya would’ve been included in notable draft busts, but he was drafted one spot outside the lottery, so because he wasn’t a lottery pick, he wasn’t included there.)
