Pistons draft Miami's Brown, trade for Creighton's Thomas

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) With their first-round pick gone after the trade for Blake Griffin, the Detroit Pistons tried to make the best of a tough situation on draft night.

The Pistons selected Bruce Brown of Miami in the second round Thursday and traded for the rights to second-round pick Khyri Thomas of Creighton. Detroit used the No. 42 overall pick on Brown. Thomas went to Philadelphia at No. 38, and he was traded to the Pistons for two future second-round picks.

"Tough as nails, both of them. They can make plays," said Ed Stefanski, a senior executive for the Pistons. "Two wings. ... That's what we need. We need some young guys, especially that play that position."
