12th Pick

This trade would be a huge deal for Phoenix. They would get a 24 year-old All-Star caliber center under their control for 4 more years. Drummond is a top five center in the NBA currently. They’d also get the 12th pick in the draft. For Detroit, this marks the beginning of a rebuild, which isn’t really that bad of an idea with LeBron’s dominance in the East right now. They get the 4th pick, which they can use to draft a great wing player to build the team around. They also get a young, high potential big man in Bender. Chandler starts for them until the end of his contract most likely.

OG Anunoby. 12. player. 66. . Forward. Indiana

OG Anunoby, when everything’s said and done, is basically the new PJ Tucker. He is bigger and stronger than PJ, and he projects to be one of the next defensive bullies in the NBA. However, he cannot shoot or score well at all. Most of his scoring will come off offensive rebounds and hustle plays. Sound like Tucker yet? Unless Anunoby develops a serviceable shot, even from the corner 3 like Tucker had, he wouldn’t be a starter for this team. Even so, the Suns need defense, and toughness. OG brings that, no questions about that.
