Detroit Pistons Make Great Choice With Peyton Siva in 2013 NBA Draft
While he’s a proven winner already, he could be a sneaky contender to earn some solid playing time at point guard for the Pistons. Re-signing Jose Calderon may still be on the team’s list of things to do, Siva definitely takes some pressure off of that need.
Siva probably won’t be the first choice, actually he won’t be the first choice, at point guard for the Pistons, but a solid Summer League performance could earn him a solid playing time spot on the roster.
This pick just shows that the Pistons have a lot of plans for their roster, possibly the addition of a solid point guard and Siva to back him up. With a lot of cap space available for this summer’s free agency, it will be possible that they make a huge splash in the market.
Back to the point, Siva is a winner and he will hopefully bring that to the Pistons — because everyone knows they need it. Missing out on the playoffs for yet another season in 2012-13, Detroit will look to get back to the winning ways they once had in the mid-to-late 2000s.
He is a speedy, athletic point guard that can slash to the basket and score or make a quick pass at any moment. With 10.0 points and 5.7 assists in his senior season at Louisville, he proved that he can be the pass-first point guard for an NBA team looking for a solid backup.
A little bit undersized, his only knocks are that he can’t really shoot from the perimeter and, well, he isn’t very big.
The 6-foot-1, 181-pound point guard has a bright future. Great pick by the Pistons.
