With Jabari Smith, Chet Holmgren, and Paolo Banchero likely going 1-2-3, that leaves the Detroit Pistons with a handful of options at No. 5.

As it stands, Jaden Ivey out of Purdue is -220 to be selected No. 4 overall by the Sacramento Kings.

With Ivey expected to go No. 4 to the Kings, Keegan Murray out of Iowa is now the favorite at +115 to be selected by the Pistons with the No. 5 overall pick with Bennedict Mathurin (+240) just behind him in the odds.

Here are the full odds as of 11:13 this morning for the No. 5 overall pick.

Keegan Murray (+115)

Bennedict Mathurin (+240)

Jaden Ivey (+440)

Dyson Daniels (+440)

Shaedon Sharpe (+1900)

A.J. Griffin (+6500)

Nation, if Ivey is off the table, who would you like to see the Detroit Pistons select with the No. 5 overall pick in the 2022 NBA Draft?
