Andre Drummond a superstar in the making

If it wasn't for him getting drafted into the right situation, getting to play alongside a guy who pushes him to work hard in Greg Monroe, he'd have the bust label already even though he fell to ninth. Thanks to having the right guys around him, they have a future superstar and a guy who's gonna be the best at his position a couple years down the road.

I'm wondering though, when his contract expires, they have a boatload of contracts in the books. What if some other team offers him a massive contract? I suppose Detroit will try to keep Monroe around Drummond to help him develop but it comes at a high cost. They will have some tough decisions ahead of them. Josh Smith's contract will be hard to move imo.

He hasn't done a lot yet (a good first year, but many have had good first years and never panned out). Don't start talking about whether someone will outbid the Pistons when his contract expires or that he's going to be the best at his position (He's got a shot but it's not near automatic) and especially that he's going to be a superstar..

Drummond can become a great player, but it's no guarantee. He's got a lot of potential but needs A LOT of work. I don't really think he has as great head on his shoulders either.

the pistons have just 17

the pistons have just 17 million committed for when drummond becomes a FA. which he wont because they will extend his contract. but that is still enough to extend monroe to the max if need be and still sign top level players. the pistons are still extremely flexible going forward as far as their cap situation.

yeah lets start darko when we

yeah lets start darko when we have a championship team, besides he didnt do anything outside his 2 years in detroit. they gave tons of opportunities to knight and monroe, even singler. im sure drummond will get his time.
