D.J. White selected by Detroit at No. 29


[10:55 UPDATE]

Yeah. So, apparently D.J.’s headed to Seattle. Forget all the stuff down below. He would have never fit in with the Pistons.

But the Sonics? He’ll play with Kevin Durant, and that’s a system that should work well for pretty much any complimentary player.

Looks like D.J. White is headed to Motown.

As people have been pointing out all along, Detroit is probably a good place for D.J. The Pistons play a rugged style that he’ll fit into.

Interestingly, there was a report about a month ago that the Pistons had given White a guarantee that they would draft him. He then skipped th pre-draft camp, providing more evidence that he already felt secure about where he would end up.

    GO DJ!!!

  • DETROITBASKETBALL says:

    crap hes going to Seattle. BOO

  • detroitgirl says:

    I was born in Detroit and have lived here in Bloomington for almost ten years. I hope DJ stays in Detroit…he’s a great fit for them, and (contrary to what most Indiana folks think) it’s a great city where I think he’d have a great career.

    Either way…first round, way to go DJ!! Good luck!

    Detroit sucks glad to see he is going to Oklahoma City errr ummm Seattle.

  • BA says:

    That kind of sucks for DJ here he was suppposedly promised to go to Detroit and they trade him for two 2nd rounders. Oh well he will probably have a greater opportunity to play in Seattle or Oklahoma City. Good Luck DJ you are the man.

  • PistonsFan says:

    DJ was a terrible fit in Detroit, they’ve already got 4 PF’s better than him (Wallace, McDyess, Maxiell, Johnson). It’s a good thing he’s not going there.

  • J Pat says:

    What a class act! I will miss this guy BIG TIME! I will never forget the way he kept trying to get the team and bench into that last game vs Arkansas. He was the only kid on the team that gave a crap..in the end. GOOD LUCK!!!

  • Doug T says:
