Pistons News: Detroit Targeting Frank Kaminsky In Draft As A Greg Monroe Replacement?

The Detroit Pistons would love to keep free agent-to-be Greg Monroe in the fold, but there's a chance the team could end up essentially swapping Monroe for a young replacement via the draft.

According to David Mayo of MLive.com, the team could consider Wisconsin's Frank Kaminsky if the NBA Draft Lottery cards fall just right:

The Pistons, who will draft No. 8 if their position is unchanged by Tuesday's lottery draw, are at risk of losing Greg Monroe -- more popularly nicknamed "Moose" -- via unrestricted free agency this summer.

Despite ongoing assertions that they hope to keep Monroe, the Pistons simultaneously must search for his replacement at power forward.

Enter Kaminsky, a multi-dimensional range shooter who could stretch the floor and give the Pistons more opportunity to play president-coach Stan Van Gundy's preferred four-out, one-in offensive brand.

The 2014-15 Naismith College Basketball Player of the Year also brings a unique skill set to the table, having functioned as a 6-foot-1 guard in high school before sprouting nine inches and finding his groove as a big man for the Badgers.
