The Detroit Pistons select Cade Cunningham at position 1

The Detroit Pistons made Cade Cunningham the # 1 pick in the 2021 NBA Draft. The Guard’s name was first called up at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, as expected.

“It’s still a little surreal to me,” said Cunningham after his draw. “I know there is a lot of responsibility involved, but I’m ready for it.”

Hours before the draft, Adrian Wojnarowski had from ESPN reports that Detroit has committed itself to Cunningham. In the days before, there were rumors that the Pistons would also consider Jalen Green and Evan Mobley for the first pick.

Other teams tried to get Detroit to trade the pick. The Houston Rockets did this “aggressively”, but the Oklahoma City Thunder probably also lured them with an offer. OKC allegedly also offered its own franchise star, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander.
