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.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Luke Kennard to the Pistons. He's the first non-freshman to be drafted this year. His 19 20-point games were tied for most in the ACC last year. The last time the Pistons drafted a Duke player in the first round was Grant Hill in 1994.

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.
