Former Oklahoma State Cowboys superstar Cade Cunningham is now headed to the Detroit Pistons after the team selected him first overall in the 2021 NBA Draft.

Cunningham has been widely regarded as the top prospect in this year’s class, and he has repeatedly said so as much in the days leading to the NBA draft. In fact, he didn’t meet with any other team aside from the Detroit Pistons because of his confidence he would not fall below no. 1.

Although Cunningham was never truly slated to remain at Oklahoma State for more than one season, he quickly ascended to the top of the NBA Draft board throughout 2020-21 after stringing together more than a few highlights with the Cowboys. No doubt one of the top all-around players in all of college basketball from the jump, Cunningham wasted absolutely no time in becoming the best of the best as the Pistons pretty much made a no-brainer selection.

Standing at 6-foot-8 while weighing 220 pounds, Cade Cunningham averaged an impressive 20.1 points per game for the Cowboys in his one-and-done year. He also recorded 6.2 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 1.6 steals and 0.8 blocks across a whopping 35.4 minutes per outing as a freshman. The now NBA rookie shot an even 40 percent from behind the arc and 43.8 percent from the field.

Perhaps the lone knock on Cunningham coming out of Oklahoma State is that the Pistons’ newcomer did average four turnovers per game. Nonetheless, Cunningham is as NBA-ready as it gets and will surely make an impact for Detroit come the 2021-22 campaign.
