Best team fit: Detroit Pistons

With as many questions as the Detroit Pistons continue to have in their backcourt, it wouldn't be all that surprising if they elected to take another gamble on a highly touted guard in this year's NBA Draft. One prospect in the top 10 that could be a fit for the Pistons is Stephon Castle. As somewhat of a polarizing prospect, there's a lot to like about Castle's game as he prepares to make the jump to the NBA.

Castle is a 6-foot-7 guard who has shown enough signs to suggest he could be a star at the next level. He has the potential to be a strong two-way player and has shown enough as a playmaker to warrant top-10 status. The big questions in his game revolve around the consistency of a jump shot.

However, if he can prove that he can be consistent in that area of his game or, at the very least, show some improvement, Castle has a chance to be one of the next faces of the Pistons next to Cade Cunningham.
