Now that the coaching search is over, the front office can turn their attention to the next important off-season task; the NBA draft. The Detroit Pistons seem to have found a nucleus that should blend well together if they are properly coached. Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe are on the rise to stardom and could be the best big
