|2007 NBA Mock Draft
Overall Pick: 15
Chosen by: Detroit Bad Boys
SG, USC, Jr.
Matt from Detroit Bad Boys
selects Nick Young for the Pistons.
After trading Carlos Delfino to the Raptors, we were in need of a perimeter player who could back up both Tayshaun Prince and Rip Hamilton. Young fits the mold. He should provide instant offense off the bench, hopefully helping prevent quite as many long stretches where the team struggles to find the bottom of the basket. The moment he signs a contract he'll be one of the few players on the team who can create his own shot. Plus, his midrange game is strong, so he should also be able to contribute within the flow of the game.
In case you're stuck in mock land, the Carlos Delfino trade to the Raptors was a real trade
between two real teams. The Raptors found two future second round picks (2009 and 2011) between their couch cushions and sent them to the Pistons for Delfino.
