The NBA Draft is tonight at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn with the Pistons picking eighth in the first round. Detroit could possibly find former Michigan star point guard Trey Burke available when it’s their turn to make a selection. Burke is expected to become U-of-M’s first first round draft pick since Jamal Crawford in 2000. And if Tim Hardaway, Jr. is taken in the first round as well, it would be just the third time in Michigan’s history that they had multiple first round picks. Leading the way tonight with the number one selection in the draft will be the Cleveland Cavaliers. .
