Detroit Pistons Planning to Draft Bill Walker?

The rumor around the NBA draft world is that Joe Dumars promised Bill Walker that if he was there at pick number 29, Detroit would select him.

Despite Walker injuring his knee, he stayed in the draft. Which leads to the speculation.

June 16, ESPN: Kansas State Wildcats redshirt freshman Bill Walker will remain in the NBA draft despite injuring his right knee at a workout over the weekend, his advisor, Chris Rivers said Monday afternoon…

Rivers, the director of basketball at Reebok, said that an MRI taken Monday on Walker didn’t reveal a tear of the MCL or the ACL, which was feared when Walker heard a pop prior to working out for 21 teams at the Golden State Warriors’ practice facility in Oakland. [mlive.com]
