News Post || News Now

The Detroit Pistons are on the clock. The 2021 NBA Draft already has produced its fair share of drama. It’s a month later than normal thanks to the COVID-19-delayed NBA calendar. We’ve already got several trades in the books. And the rumor mill and Twitter mill is spinning at record speeds.

Check back here as the draft goes. We’ll be grading every pick, as we have for years. It’s a collaborative effort — Gary Parrish handles the first round, while Kyle Boone does the second. You can watch our coverage of the 2021 NBA Draft on CBS Sports HQ, which is free and available on all connected platforms.
