The next team up in this series of top 10 draft picks since 1990 is the Detroit Pistons.

In order to make this list, the player must have actually been drafted by the Pistons. Only the player’s impact with Detroit is considered (someone like Khris Middleton started playing a large role once he went to the Milwaukee Bucks). Where the player was selected makes a difference (if a 26th overall pick had about as much impact as a fifth overall pick, then the 26th overall pick will be higher).

All draft picks were found at Basketball-Reference.

1

Grant Hill - First round, third overall (1994)

Inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2018, Hill spent his first six seasons with Detroit where his all-around game led to five All-Star appearances with them as well and five straight top-nine MVP finishes from 1995-96 until 1999-00.

2

Tayshaun Prince - First round, 23rd overall (2002)

In Pistons franchise history, Prince ranks fifth in games played (792) and three-pointers made (510), eighth in points (10,006), and ninth in assists (2,074).
