NBA Draft Trade Rumors: Pistons Looking For Additional First-Rounder For Jared Sullinger?

Following Monday's superstar workout, many are left believing that the Detroit Pistons plan on selecting North Carolina's John Henson with the No. 9 overall selection in the 2012 NBA Draft on Thursday night. In a workout that had the likes of Baylor's Perry Jones III, Illinois' Meyers Leonard, North Carolina's Tyler Zeller and Kentucky's Terrence Jones, Henson apparently stood out the most and made an impact on those in attendance.

Ohio State's Jared Sullinger was also at the workout and apparently has fallen off the Pistons radar for the No. 9 selection. However, that doesn't mean the Pistons don't have interest in Sullinger.

When Sullinger was medically red-flagged by the NBA's doctors on June 18, the projected lottery selection's stock began to plummet, which is where the Pistons' interest comes into play. It is believed that if Sullinger drops into the bottom third of the first round that Detroit will make a play to acquire a late-round pick to try and select him.
