Despite not having a first round pick, the Detroit Pistons seemed determined to make the most of this year's NBA draft.

In the second round, they reportedly traded two future second round picks to the Philadelphia 76ers in exchange for the 38th overall pick.

With that choice, they picked point guard Khyri Thomas out of Creighton. In three collegiate seasons, Thomas started 95 of 102 games.

A high shooting percentage means Thomas could add depth to the PG position in Detroit. Reggie Jackson's injuries have left the team yearning to make up for offensive production. Last season, Detroit was 22nd in the league for scoring.

The Pistons took Sophomore Bruce Brown out of Miami with the 42nd overall pick in Thursday's draft.

At 6 feet 5, Brown is a physical player with a talent for rebounding. Brown showed his ability to make plays for himself as a Hurricane before a foot injury kept him sidelined the second half of his sophomore season.
