The Pistons missed out on a top three selection during the NBA's 2010 Draft Lottery, so Detroit maintains its position with the No. 7 pick in next month's 2010 NBA Draft.

The bad news is that the team would've won the No. 2 overall draft pick had it won its tiebreaker with the Philadelphia 76ers, who had just as much of a chance as the Pistons to win a spot in the top three. Instead, it's the Sixers who will have the second selection in the draft.

In all likelihood, the Pistons will look to select a big man. With the seventh pick, the team's most likely going to be able to choose between Cole Aldrich of Kansas, Ed Davis of North Carolina and Greg Monroe of Georgetown.
