AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) -- The Detroit Pistons have selected Missouri guard Kim English with the 44th pick in the NBA draft.
  
The 6-foot-6 English averaged 14.5 points per game and shot 46 percent from 3-point range in his senior season with the Tigers. He also improved to 52 percent from the field after being under 40 his first three college seasons.
  
English could provide backcourt depth for the Pistons behind guards Brandon Knight and Rodney Stuckey. Detroit traded guard Ben Gordon earlier this week.
