2010 NBA Draft, Seventh Pick: Detroit Pistons Select Greg Monroe, Georgetown

After a surprising pick by the Golden State Warriors, a steal falls into Detroit’s lap in the gifted big man from Georgetown. He spent two years with the Hoyas, averaging 16.1 points and 9.8 rebounds as a senior.

At 6-11, 247 pounds, Monroe should slide right in to the frontcourt rotation for Detroit, who used a combination of Ben Wallace and Kwame Brown at center last season.

Interesting tidbit — he’ll be reunited, at least temporarily, with former Hoyas teammate DaJuan Summers, a rookie last season.

It’s Detroit’s first lottery pick since it took Darko back in 2003. You have to think this selection will work out a little better for the Pistons.
