NBA Draft preview: Wake Forest's Al-Farouq Aminu

The Pistons are expected to take a big man with the No. 7 pick in the NBA Draft. The wild card that could cause Detroit to change its mind is Wake Forest's Al-Farouq Aminu. The 6-foot-9, 215-pound Aminu has drawn comparisons to Atlanta's Josh Smith. He averaged 15.8 points, 10.7 rebounds, 1.4 blocks and 1.4 steals for Wake Forest last season as a sophomore. Aminu is still just 19 and likely has room to improve. ESPN's Chad Ford has the Pistons taking Aminu in his latest mock draft as does Here are some highlight videos for you to judge for yourself:
