NBA Draft 2012: Start Time, TV Coverage, Results, Grades And More

Draft Day is finally here. After another year out of the playoffs, the Detroit Pistons will add another first-round pick to their roster Thursday night.

The Pistons hold the No. 9 pick in the draft. If you've been following mock drafts, you're aware that Detroit is said to be leaning toward going big. UNC's John Henson, a lanky but mobile shot-blocker, is thought to be a good fit next to Greg Monroe in the frontcourt. UConn's freakishly athletic but maddeningly inconsistent Andre Drummond has also been linked to the Pistons recently. Drummond was previously considered a sure-fire top five pick.

The 2012 NBA Draft will begin on Thursday, June 28, at 7 p.m. ET and will be televised on ESPN. Complete draft analysis starts at 5:30 p.m. ET on NBA TV.
