Jabari Smith – Wallace Prather
Keegan Smith – Mark Bartelstein

DETROIT (AP) — The Detroit #Pistons selected Purdue’s Jaden Ivey with the No. 5 overall pick in the NBA draft on Thursday night, adding desperately needed talent to a team led by Cade Cunningham. apnews.com/article/nba-sp… – 8:42 PM

DETROIT PISTONS PICK JADEN IVEY OF PURDUE #5
SNAP GRADE: A+++
@David Thorpe: The perfect fit next to Cunningham! Incredibly explosive athlete who has a high hoops IQ and great motor. When the Pistons win a playoff series in 2 years, remember this night.

Cade Cunningham and Jaden Ivey should be absolutely perfect together, and more importantly, they are going to be one of the most watchable backcourts in the NBA for years to come. I might watch more Pistons by New Year’s than I have in the past decade. – 8:33 PM

Initial thought about the Pistons taking Jaden Ivey fifth:
I wonder if this takes them out of the Jalen Brunson market, considering they can use all that cap room elsewhere and they now have Ivey & Cunningham paired up. – 8:30 PM

Kings have to hit on Keegan Murray. Have to. That No. 4 slot was tricky. Lot of talent (Jaden Ivey, Dyson Daniels, etc.) in that range. Kings need Murray to be the best of the bunch — and fit in with the Fox/Sabonis core. – 8:30 PM
Matt George @MattGeorgeSAC
Keegan Murray gives the Sacramento Kings a better chance of making the playoffs right away then Jaden Ivey does.
Jaden Ivey has the higher ceiling, but not by much. And based on college production, Keegan Murray is BPA.
Needless to say, I like the pick. – 8:29 PM
TJ McBride @TJMcBrideNBA
Good on the Kings for grabbing Keegan Murray and picking their guy even with Jaden Ivey on the board. He will fit very well with Sabonis and Fox.
Now Detroit gets their guy in Jaden Ivey. – 8:28 PM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
To be clear I like Keegan Murray and think he’ll do well in Sacramento.
But Jaden Ivey is better and this is bad process from the Kings. At the very least trade down with Detroit and get something to do this. – 8:27 PM
Chris Fedor @ChrisFedor
#Cavs fans: Keep an eye on what the Detroit Pistons do at No. 5 tonight. The Pistons are one of the teams interested in Collin Sexton, as I’ve been reporting for about a month. If Detroit gets Jaden Ivey or Ben Mathurin or Shaedon Sharpe then Sexton isn’t as much of a priority. – 8:25 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Paolo Banchero, Jaden Ivey, TyTy Washington and Jeremy Sochan are all expected to go in the top-20 of the NBA Draft tonight. All four players learned the game from their mothers, who were ballers themselves. Story from Tuesday with @KyleTucker_ATH: theathletic.com/3370018/?sourc… – 7:49 PM
Sirius XM NBA @SiriusXMNBA
Could the Thunder surprise everyone and take Jaden Ivey at #2??
Hear why @franfraschilla thinks Ivey could be OKC’s next Russell Westbrook
Hear Fran along with @termineradio and @Eddie Johnson get you ready for the Draft now on NBA Radio! https://t.co/AYipQpeyBw pic.twitter.com/OPitYoSq73 – 5:35 PM
James Boyd @RomeovilleKid
Just thinking out loud, but how much leverage does an incoming player really have? Jaden Ivey might not be that high on the #Kings, but if I’m the Kings and I want him, I’d still draft him anyway!!
Lol be looking at each other like this after he puts that Kings hat 👀😂 pic.twitter.com/p8krciNAlX – 1:38 PM
Gery Woelfel @GeryWoelfel
The NBA draft’s top 3 picks –Jabari Smith, Chet Holmgren and Paolo Banchero — have been virtually set for several weeks. The fun & games begin at 4. Kings are VERY receptive to moving the pick, and Knicks want it in worst way to get Jaden Ivey. Toppin and a pair of No. 1s? – 12:54 PM
