    Jul 21, 2012, 9:03 PM EST

    Ben Wallace, Jordan Williams

    The Pistons are going young and they are hoping that just drafted Andre Drummond can live up to the hype and be at the heart of that movement. But should the Pistons bring back Ben Wallace for an 18th season as a mentor? Does Wallace want to do that, or does he want to retire…

    Ben Gordon

    Ben Gordon will not be part of host Great Britain’s basketball team at the Olympics.

    Jun 28, 2012, 6:21 PM EST

    John Henson speaks during a news conference for prospective NBA draft picks in New York

    I’m higher on North Carolina’s shot-blocking forward John Henson than most, or at least most not wearing powder blue. And if he falls to No. 9, which is highly likely, look for the Detroit Pistons to grab him, reports the Detroit Free Press. Henson is the likely pick. The Pistons like his makeup and, despite…

    Well, Anthony Davis is No.1 and Thomas Robinson will go in the top five. That’s a pretty good start for the bigs in the 2012 NBA draft. After that, things get really interesting. Of the top bigs: Andre Drummond, Jared Sullinger, John Henson, Meyers Leonard, Tyler Zeller, Perry Jones, and if you want to throw…

    The NBA is evolving into more of a point-guard league — if you can’t touch a quick ball handler on the perimeter they are going to carve up any defense. With the rules enforced as they are, Tony Parker can’t guard Tony Parker. So no shock that the two guys on top of the NBA…
