The NBA Draft is fast-approaching on Thursday, July 29th, and as we all know by now, the Detroit Pistons have the #1 overall pick in the draft. The top prize in this year’s draft is Oklahoma State Guard Cade Cunningham, who stated after the NBA Draft Lottery that he would only workout for one team….the team that is picking #1 overall. Apparently, that workout must have happened last night because many photos were taken of him with numerous fans, and by the way, he happened to take in a Tigers game at Comerica Park. Not only did the Tigers stomp all over the Rangers, 14-0, but the fans wanted to show Cunningham their appreciation by continuously chanting, “We Want Cade!”
Hmmm, Cade Cunningham at the Tigers game?! We could get used to that https://t.co/gJfeudyIxx

While rumblings continue to swirl about teams wanting to trade up to the #1 overall pick to try and snatch Cunningham away from the Pistons, others are coming out saying that the Pistons have already made their decision:
