Andre Drummond has not been bothered by his limited role with Team USA.
"It’s fine; we’re winning basketball games, and that’s the most important part about this experience," Drummond said when asked about his reduced role. "If I don’t get the opportunity to play, the coaching staff knows what they’re doing, and it just wasn’t the right time for me to be on the court." While he's struggled to get minutes on a loaded US Team that will not be an issue when he returns to the Pistons. Drummond's fantastic sophomore campaign in which he compiled averages of 13.5 points, 13.2 rebounds, 1.2 steals, and 1.6 blocks has him coming off the board in the very early rounds of drafts. Just know that Drummond is also a 41.8 percent free throw shooting, so if you take him early, punting would be advisable. Sep 5 - 6:22 PM

When all was said and done, USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo couldn't leave Andre Drummond off the final 12-man Team USA roster.

"[Drummond] is a blossoming center in the NBA," Colangelo said. "He's just a kid, but he's come a long way in a very short period of time. We see him as a big part of our future... Yes he's young, but a 7-foot, 280-pound guy who can run the floor the way Drummond runs and who protects the rim... when you describe all the physical attributes, that's a hard call to leave a guy at home." Drummond will be a glass-eater, and rim protector for the US squad, and the experience playing with the team can only be positive for the sophomore. Drummond's rebounding is elite, and if you're punting the free throw category, he's a fun guy to own.

Andre Drummond made Team USA for the upcoming FIBA World Cup.

He was expected to be cut, but coach Mike Kzyzewski went with a team of 12 players. Drummond just turned 21 on Aug. 10 and he is considered as one of the most raw players in the NBA, so just imagine where he's going to be in a couple seasons. Sure, he can't shoot a free throw, but he's already shaping up to be the league's best rebounder and is getting better at scoring around the basket. If you don't care about free throw percentage, Drummond is worth a very early selection.

Andre Drummond is likely to be cut from the Team USA roster.

He didn't play in Saturday's exhibition vs. Brazil despite how the team is short on big men. Drummond seems to be behind Kenneth Faried, Mason Plumlee and DeMarcus Cousins (knee) for this summer's team, but the 21-year-old is only going to get better.
Aug 18 - 10:24 AM

Andre Drummond remains hopeful he can make the final 12-man Team USA roster.

"I don’t plan on going home," Drummond said. "I feel like I’ve done a pretty good job here these past couple of weeks really proving I could be a part of this team. We have a lot of great players out here. I’m not going to back down. I know what’s at stake. I want to win a gold medal." It seems that Drummond will be competing for a spot with Mason Plumlee and DeMarcus Cousins, and he will get a chance to showcase himself during Team USA's exhibition game vs. Brazil with DeMarcus on the sidelines.
Aug 15 - 5:52 PM

Andre Drummond said he expects Greg Monroe to return to the Pistons.

"I still have high hopes, and I’m pretty sure he is coming home, so I’m excited for this season," Drummond said. He probably shouldn't be too confident about Monroe considering we're into August and there is nothing to suggest Monroe is even close to a deal. As for Drummond himself, he should be able to make Team USA, and will enter his third season as one of the best young centers in the NBA.
Aug 1 - 9:22 AM

With Kevin Love, Blake Griffin, and LaMarcus Aldridge all electing to sit out the 2014 FIBA World Cup, Andre Drummond is a near lock to make the U.S. national team.

"He’s a big, strong, young man with a terrific future, and he’s got a great attitude to go along with it," U.S. managing director Jerry Colangelo said of Drummond recently. "Because size is important in international play, his rebounding, his shot-blocking ability makes him a candidate. It’ll be interesting to see how much he’s progressed since we saw him last when we had our camp last year." Drummond gives the U.S. some much-needed size, and it would be shocking to see him not make the team.

Andre Drummond wanted to play in this year's Summer League in Orlando according to Stan Van Gundy, but he will not play.

You got to give the kid credit for his competitive spirit, but after last year's breakout campaign, he clearly doesn't need to practice/risk injury with the guys who suit up for Summer League games.
Jul 4 - 1:58 PM

Andre Drummond and Kyle Singler will practice with the Pistons at Orlando Summer League.

Drummond made his presence known at Orlando Summer League last year and was easily the best player there because nobody could box him out or keep him out of the paint. Outside of his woeful shooting at the line, he's an elite fantasy asset.

Andre Drummond has been playing games at Life Time Fitness gym this offseason.

There have been no reports of any injuries to any of his competitors. Drummond has dealt with injuries to his neck, back and ankle in his career, but he played in 81 games in his second season. He's a beast in the paint, and he just needs to work on his free throw shooting to elevate his game to the next level.
May 30 - 10:32 AM

The Pistons' list of GM candidates reportedly includes former Raptors GM Bryan Colangelo and Celtics assistant GM Mike Zarren.

Detroit may opt to hire a seasoned executive to help groom Chauncey Billups as their GM of the future, but for the moment Colangelo and Zarren are believed to be "at the front of the pack."
May 7 - 11:46 AM

Andre Drummond led the NBA this season with his 5.4 offensive rebounds per game, 19.6 rebounds per 48 minutes and 6.1 contested rebounds per game.

Only DeAndre Jordan had more total rebounds per game than Drummond and it's obvious the 20-year-old big man has some ridiculous potential as a rebounder. He was also 10th in the NBA in blocks per game and was second among centers in steals per game. On the other hand, he did finish dead last among qualifiers for free throw shooting, but that's really the only knock on his game as a stat-stuffing player.
Apr 17 - 4:14 PM

Andre Drummond double-doubled against the Raptors on Sunday with 14 points, 17 boards, two assists, two steals and three blocks in 31 minutes.

His ability to grab contested rebounds is second to none and he's just 20 years old. Drummond's 1.24 steals per game are also a nice bonus to his statistical output while he also looks like he'll be very durable with 81 games played this season -- assuming he goes on Wednesday. He's an elite fantasy asset even with the free throw shooting woes.
Apr 13 - 6:43 PM

Andre Drummond was everywhere during a loss to the Bulls on Friday with 26 points, 26 boards, three steals and one block in 42 minutes.

Amazingly, he grabbed 19 boards in the first half and had some rare success against the Bulls. It's the second 20-20 game of his career and he became the first player in NBA history to have seven 20-rebound games in a season before turning 21 years old. He's one of the best young players in the NBA and he'll be going very early in fantasy drafts next season even though he's one of the worst free throw shooters.
Apr 12 - 1:00 AM

Andre Drummond had 19 points, 17 rebounds, two steals and two blocks in Tuesday's win over the Hawks.

His steals and blocks had really fallen off recently, so tonight's line was a welcomed sight. In fact, this was his first game with at least two steals and two blocks in the same game since way back on March 3. Drummond is only going to be better next season, with free throw shooting being the only hole in his game.
