People place different values on NBA prospects. Some people love them, while others are weary. 

That’s understandable. Prospects are unknown quantities. We’ve all seen too many busts in our lifetime to be completely confident in anyone. 

On the other hand, the potential can be enticing. Moreover, there are benefits in drafting a prospect. A player on a rookie contract is cost controlled for quite some time. That gives teams an opportunity to rebuild around them. 

With that said, sometimes, teams get tired of gambling on upside. Eventually, they may decide to cash in a lottery pick for a known commodity.

For example, the Detroit Pistons have had a lot of lottery picks in recent years. 

Could they use one to acquire Pascal Siakam of the Toronto Raptors?
