Another Duke Blue Devil off the board. Luke Kennard goes to Detroit at No. 12. Frank Jackson stands and cheers with his parents. Harry Giles and Jackson could join their teammates by night's end.
Luke Kennard scored efficiently, but not up to expectations of a player who is almost 21. He ranks 30th overall in ESPN's analytic draft model with a 7% chance he will play at least at the level of a starter.
With the No. 12 overall pick, the Pistons selected Luke Kennard (G, Duke). The last time the Pistons selected 12th overall was 1981, when they picked Kelly Tripucka, who went on to make the All-Star team as a rookie.
Loyola's Milton Doyle, who is viewed as a mid-major sleeper by teams who've scouted this season, is scheduled to workout for the Houston Rockets on Monday and the Detroit Pistons on Tuesday, a league source tells ESPN. Doyle, a 6-4 guard guard with sizeable wingspan, has intrigued teams with his scoring prowess and ability to distribute the ball. Originally committed to Kansas, Doyle transferred home to Loyola (Ill.), where he averaged 15.3 points and 4.4 assists per game and was named first-team All Missouri Valley Conference as a senior. Doyle, who had a solid showing at Portsmouth, is expected to work out for several teams after his Pistons workout.
The Detroit Pistons land the 12th pick in the NBA Draft Lottery. Detroit has made the playoffs just once since 2009.
