07:08 AM ET 06.27 | Will he still be around for the Pistons at No. 8? Trey Burke can promise only one thing in tonight's NBA draft. "I'm going to smile first," he said Wednesday at the Westin Times Square Hotel, where the NBA's green-room invitees met with the media. "I'm not going to get up with a frown or a regular look. I'm going to smile because I'm going to be happy for what I just accomplished." ... The former Michigan star doesn't know much more than that. He worked out for four teams and met with the Pistons, though. "Anywhere from 2 to 8 is the range I'm expecting to go," he said, identifying Orlando to Detroit. "I really don't know what team I'm going to or where I would fall to. I'm just excited for all opportunities."

Can't go much higher than 2 so chances are he just might go lower!!!

I say the Magic picks him up. They're in dire need of a young PG that can shoot.

Expect in one hand and **** in the other and lets see which one fills up first.

If the Cavs want the best player in the draft , and I have been saying this for a while now,,I think Trey is the best player in the draft.....However I thnik teams draft for need, which coincides with potential in Noel, as well as needs for the cavs, who were the worst defensive team in the nba last season

We'll trade our no. 1 pick for your Iman Shumpert.

Yeah he is right that is about as high as he can go. No one is moving up to number 1 to draft Burke. I think he will be good player as a scoring guard off the bench. The guard from Lehigh will be nice (CJ) don't sleep on him as well.

*nods* He had a very hard time against taller and longer players in college. It's not going to get any easier in the N.B.A. Obviously there are/were 6-footers who can and have pulled it off, but upon last looks, this guy clearly hadn't figured out. This is why I said he should have stayed another year at Michigan, but I'm curious to see how it goes for him.
