AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) - The Detroit Pistons have selected Colorado shooting guard Spencer Dinwiddie with the No. 38 overall pick in the NBA draft.
Detroit took Dinwiddie early in the second round Thursday night to play for first-year executive and coach Stan Van Gundy.
The Pistons went into the night without a first-round slot, giving up the No. 9 pick to Charlotte to complete a previous salary-cap saving trade for Ben Gordon. Van Gundy said earlier in the week he would be willing to move back into the first round if a team with one of the last picks would be willing to give it up for a future second-rounder and cash. That potential trade did not happen.
