|With their first-round pick gone after the trade for Blake Griffin Tarik Cohen Jersey , the Detroit Pistons tried to make the best of a tough situation on draft night.
The Pistons selected Bruce Brown of Miami in the second round Thursday and traded for the rights to second-round pick Khyri Thomas of Creighton. Detroit used the No. 42 overall pick on Brown. Thomas went to Philadelphia at No. 38, and he was traded to the Pistons for two future second-round picks.
”Tough as nails, both of them. They can make plays,” said Ed Stefanski, a senior executive for the Pistons. ”Two wings. … That’s what we need. We need some young guys, especially that play that position.”
The Pistons sent their first-round pick to the Los Angeles Clippers in a trade for Griffin this past season, so this was shaping up as an uneventful night for them. They did manage to come away with two players instead of one, but expectations will likely be tempered for these second-round selections.
The 6-foot-5 Brown Cheap Rasheem Green Jersey , who averaged 11.7 points per game over two seasons at Miami, was limited to 19 games in 2017-18 because of a left foot injury. He shot just 27 percent from 3-point range last season.
”I’m good to go – fully cleared,” Brown said. ”All the medicals looked fine at the combine, so yeah, I’m ready to go.”
The 6-foot-3 Thomas averaged 15.1 points last season and shot 41 percent from beyond the arc. He started 96 games in his three seasons at Creighton.
”Shooting the 3s and just defending,” Thomas said. ”I know that’s one way to get on the court, and defending, that’s my thing Joe Mixon Bengals Jersey , something I like to do.”
Detroit hired Dwane Casey as its new coach this offseason. There’s still work to be done in reshaping the front office, but Stefanski said this week he would have a lot of influence.
The Pistons have had mixed results with their last three first-round picks – Luke Kennard, Henry Ellenson and Stanley Johnson – and after trading for Griffin, they don’t have a particularly flexible roster. They also parted ways with a couple key perimeter players in that deal, sending Avery Bradley and Tobias Harris to the Clippers, so there’s room for more depth on the wing.
Stefanski said there’s more adrenaline when a team has a first-round pick to make, but the trade with Philadelphia made the night perhaps more intriguing than expected for the Pistons.
”It got exciting when it started to come together,” Stefanski said. ”It looked like we weren’t going to be able to do anything http://www.billsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-jeremy-kerley-jersey , it looks like the guys were coming off the board, and then it got exciting for us.”
Casey Hayward got the raise he deserved after two standout seasons for the Chargers.
The Pro Bowl cornerback agreed to a three-year, $36 million contract extension with the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday.
The Chargers and Hayward’s agent, David Mulugheta, confirmed the deal. NFL.com first reported the extension.
Hayward gets $20 million guaranteed after two Pro Bowl seasons for the Chargers, who signed him in San Diego as a free agent from Green Bay in 2016. The six-year pro has played in every game since moving to the West Coast, getting 11 total interceptions while drawing the toughest defensive assignments for the Chargers’ much-improved defense last year.
”Got to thank the (at)Chargers and the Spanos family for everything,” Hayward tweeted. ”Believing in a guy everybody said was a NICKEL guy and giving him a chance to flourish outside. 3 more years and counting. Let’s push for that ring.”
Hayward had played his way into a starting role for the Packers in 2015 after beginning his career mostly as a slot defender Cheap Dalton Schultz Jersey , but Green Bay let him walk – and Hayward immediately became one of the NFL’s best defensive backs with the Bolts. The website Pro Football Focus graded Hayward as the NFL’s best coverage defender last season.
Hayward had one year remaining on his initial free-agent contract. He joins several key defensive players with the Chargers who are locked into long-term deals, including Joey Bosa, Melvin Ingram and Jahleel Addae.
After winning nine of their final 12 games and barely missing out on a playoff spot, the Chargers likely aren’t looking to overhaul their defense during the free agent period. They hope to re-sign starting safety Tre Boston, but he could command top dollar on the market after his strong season.
