What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Mark Montieth @MarkMontieth
The influence of @Jalen Rose‘s mother, Jeanne, continues as two more Jalens entered the NBA via the draft last night: Jalen Williams (12) and Jalen Duren (13). Also, Jaylin Williams (34). Amazing how the name has caught on. My recent story in the @IBJnews. ibj.com/articles/mark-…12:52 AM
Ryan McDonough @McDNBA
Detroit getting Jaden Ivey at 5 and then trading for Jalen Duren at 13 = a spectacular Draft night for the Pistons – 12:34 AM
Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa
Weaver on the Jalen Duren trade: “It pretty much came together after the Ivey pick … We were aggressive to make it happen.” – 11:36 PM
Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa
Troy Weaver is going to join us to talk about Jalen Duren tonight – 11:33 PM

Michael Lee @MrMichaelLee
Troy Weaver ended up with the two best athletes in the draft: Jaden Ivey & Jalen Duren. Pistons might have something nice brewing. – 10:05 PM
Ian Begley @IanBegley
Kemba Walker will be sent to Pistons by NYK in deal that landed Jalen Duren in Detroit, sources confirm. If deal is complete, NYK sheds Walker’s 2022-23 salary but needs to essentially attach a first round pick to do it. – 9:55 PM
Kevin O’Connor @KevinOConnorNBA
Pistons core is crazy. They’ve nailed the draft tonight. Jalen Duren couldn’t land in a better spot than he has with Cade Cunningham and Jaden Ivey. They all blend together, rare for a young team to have such a great fit. My goodness the pick-and-rolls they’re gonna run together. – 9:45 PM
James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
So to break it all down… per sources: The pistons receive Jalen Duren (and Keep Ivey) and Kemba Walker from Knicks.
They send out the 2025 first from Milwaukee, via portland, in Grant deal. – 9:44 PM
James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
By giving DET Jalen Duren, who the organization has fallen in move with in the pre-draft process (and before), the Knicks now have the space to make a run at Jalen Brunson because Detroit took Kemba’s contract. Pistons able to eat bad contracts because of Grant trade.
All win. – 9:41 PM
Mark Giannotto @mgiannotto
Jalen Duren and Jaden Ivey in Detroit with Cade Cunningham. Nice landing spot for Duren. Penny Hardaway and Memphis have now produced a 1st round pick in 3 of the past 4 NBA drafts.

Talking Mark Williams and guessing where Jalen Duren is going like everyone else is on the live stream with @matt_pennie and @theboxandone_: youtube.com/watch?v=JuZ-he…9:38 PM
Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa
Per sources, the Pistons have acquired Jalen Duren and Kemba Walker from the New York Knicks and are sending Milwaukee’s 2025 1st round pick, which they acquired from Portland yesterday, to Charlotte. – 9:37 PM
Wes Goldberg @wcgoldberg
so, basically, Detroit traded Jerami Grant for Jalen Duren (and Kemba Walker). Do I have that right? – 9:36 PM
Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
Says a lot about how highly OKC thought Ousmane Dieng and Jalen Williams that they passed on AJ Griffin and Jalen Duren to draft them. – 9:35 PM

Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
This has been a wild past 5 minutes trying to figure out this Jalen Duren deal lmao – 9:35 PM
Adrian Wojnarowski @wojespn
Tremendous coup for Detroit GM Troy Weaver to land two of his top targets in this draft: Jaden Ivey and Jalen Duren — with the cost of only a future first-round pick. – 9:34 PM
Mike Richman @mikegrich
That 2025 Milwaukie pick has been on a j o u r n e y. It was in the Jrue Holiday trade, the CJ McCollum trade, the Jerami Grant trade and now it looks like it’ll be in the Kemba/Jalen Duren trade. – 9:32 PM
Meghan Triplett @Meghan_Triplett
So where is Jalen Duren going and does he even know where he is going? I’m confused with these tweets – 9:31 PM
Henry Abbott @TrueHoop
@David Thorpe: I like Mark Williams much more. They clearly don’t. Detroit worried Duren would be taken at 14? Confused. He adds needed size, agility to their defense. Pistons gonna be big.

Tas Melas @TasMelas
Jalen Duren is a perfect fit for the Charlotte Horn… oh. – 9:28 PM
Kerry Eggers @kerryeggers
Charlotte got an intriguing big man in 6-11, 250-pound Jalen Duren, who played in the Portland Regional with Memphis in March. Very strong young big, good around the hoop and pretty athletic though not yet with a perimeter game. Old-school but should develop into a good pro – 9:28 PM
Synergy Sports Tech @SynergySST
Jalen Duren finished 2nd in college basketball in dunks while shooting 71% rolling to the rim, 69% on cuts, 63% on put backs as one of the youngest freshmen in the country. – 9:27 PM

Jalen Duren not going to Minnesota is a missed opportunity. Duren Duren would be hungry like the wolf. – 9:26 PM
Stefan Bondy @SBondyNYDN

Perk likes “the kid Jalen from Duke.”

Jalen Duren
Ousmane Dieng
Jeremy Sochan
Johnny Davis – 8:48 PM
Jake Madison @NOLAJake
Jalen Duren at 5 would be WILD. Please, please make it happen.
Or leverage to get the Suns to trade Ayton to them tonight? – 7:51 PM
Jake Fischer @JakeLFischer
Detroit has held ongoing conversations to find a second lottery pick in tonight’s NBA Draft, sources said. Rival executives believe Memphis center Jalen Duren is the Pistons’ primary target. – 7:47 PM
Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa
Jalen Duren was one of my five players for Pistons fans to keep an eye on in the combine, along with Ivey, Mathurin, Murray and Sharpe.
Thought he was a long shot at 5, but worth bringing up again amid rumors that the Pistons could acquire a late first. They like Duren. pic.twitter.com/pljz9Rtpv25:46 PM

Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
Draft prospects favored at 9th for the Spurs tonight from different mocks:
Jalen Duren
Shaedon Sharpe (cc @THE_BOOMSTEIN)
Johnny Davis, Jeremy Sochan also mentioned on individual mocks pic.twitter.com/YuYXWVwm1L1:25 PM
