The Pistons went into a little detail during their season recap show about who they are looking at in this years draft. Since the Pistons hold the 15th and 27th pick, they are claim they are more likely to draft the best player available. Acie Law and Javaris Crittenton were among the familiar names talked about, but you might not be familiar with an unknown Brazilian the Pistons have their eye on, 6’11 Tiago Splitter.

I was intrigued simply by his name, so I looked him up and he has quite a few YouTube highlight mixes. He looks pretty good, but you can’t really get a clear take because in this video they chose to highlight the kid for more than a minute shooting free throws. This one does Splitter some justice. In this clip the announcers even claim Splitter could go in the top 10. Could he be the next Darko? I hope not, but we should keep our eye one him. You never know who could don the red, white and blue come June 28th.
