On Tuesday night, the NBA Draft Lottery order was announced, and the Detroit Pistons got the ping pong balls to bounce the right way, as the Motor City claimed the No. 1 pick and likely Cade Cunningham.

Here is a look at how Twitter took the news.

There wasn’t any “likely” about it with Jeff Goodman.

As he stated before the to pick was announced, NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted out that Cade Cunningham will only visit one team ahead of this year’s draft.

You could call it a power move if there was any question would be headed to Motor City.


Sources: The plan for presumptive No. 1 overall pick Cade Cunningham will be to visit only one team prior to the NBA Draft on July 29: The Detroit Pistons.

Mike Boynton also let the Pistons know who the right pick is.


Hey @DetroitPistons… There is a REAL STAR headed your way. Take good care of him. Also, where do I buy season tickets??? #LetsWork
