The Detroit Pistons selected Georgia guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope at No. 8 overall in tonights 2013 NBA Draft, a pick they hope will add perimeter shooting to a team lacking the quality and might signal Brandon Knight shifts back to point guard.
The Pistons had a shot at Michigan guard Trey Burke, who still was available in a draft featuring a sequence of early surprises, but passed on him.
Caldwell-Pope was the first Georgia player since Dominique Wilkins in 1981 to be named SEC Player and first-team All-SEC by coaches and media.
He averaged 18.5 points and 7.1 assists, and was one of nine Division I players to score in double figures in all of his teams games last season. (MLive.com)
