The 2021 NBA Draft is less than a month away, with the Detroit Pistons on the clock to get things started. The overwhelming consensus is that Cade Cunningham will be the name announced to the Pistons.

There has been speculation about Detroit taking someone else at times. However, again, it’s very likely he ends going No. 1 overall, whether the pick is made by the Pistons or not.

After Cunningham, things could shake out a bit differently, but the big-name prospects of Evan Mobley, Jalen Green, and Jalen Suggs will all still be drafted near the beginning of the first round.

Trades are inevitably going to transpire throughout the draft as teams become enamored with certain prospects. What prospects are worth moving up for in the draft?
