2012 NBA Mock Draft: Pistons Select Meyers Leonard In CBS Mock

There has been a lot of talk about the Detroit Pistons using their No. 9 NBA Draft selection to add some size and grit to their team going into next season. CBSSports.com appears to agree with that sentiment, in their newest 2012 NBA Mock Draft they send Illinois C Meyers Leonard to the Pistons.

Meyers Leonard, C, Illinois: He's a legitimate 7-footer who is a freak athlete and can be a true center in the league. Sure, he needs to get tougher -- but his upside is ridiculous.

As is said in the profile, Leonard is 7'0'' and projects as a center or a power forward/center mix in the NBA. He put up solid numbers with the Fighting Illini in 2011/2012, with 13.6 points and 8.2 rebounds per game. If the Pistons really are bent on improving the size of their team going into next season, they could certainly do worse than go with Leonard at No. 9 overall.
