Pistons add top pick Cade Cunningham to youth movement

DETROIT (AP) Detroit Pistons general manager Troy Weaver didn't want to overthink the first pick in the NBA draft. He never got an offer he liked to change his mind, either.

Weaver stuck with the franchise's youth movement and grabbed Cade Cunningham, the 6-foot-8 Oklahoma State guard considered the no-brainer choice at No. 1.

"This was almost anti-climactic because everyone had him first in their mock drafts," he said with a smile Thursday night. "He gives our roster so much flexibility because we can play him in the frontcourt or the backcourt. That and his leadership - he's a human connector -- are two of the things that put him over the top."
