Andre Drummond said that he is "so tired of losing" and that he has already started working on his conditioning for next season.
"It's just a mentality," Drummond said. "I just have the mind-set right now that I don't think has been there before. I told myself this is a big summer for me. Obviously, everybody knows it's my contract year, but it's not even because of that. I'm just so tired of losing that it comes down to me and what I'm doing on the floor and that if I'm not in the best condition, the best playing shape, I can't do nothing for my team." Drummond averaged 13.8 points, 13.5 boards and 1.9 blocks this season without missing a single game, and it sounds like he could have a massive 2015-16 campaign with a maximum contract likely to follow.

Pistons owner Tom Gores referred to Andre Drummond a "maximum guy" during a recent interview.

The Pistons can extend Drummond's rookie contract with a max offer this offseason, a preferable alternative than waiting to match offers when he hits restricted free agency following the 2015-16 season, but this all hinges upon whether Drummond accepts the contract extension before the October 31 deadline. If the Pistons make Drummond their designated player, they could sign him to a five-year max extension, meaning he'd spend at least the first nine years of his career in Detroit. It'll be very interesting to see what Andre decides to do this offseason, but he has certainly established himself as a max-player.

Andre Drummond was his usual monster-self during Sunday's win over the Hornets, as scored 15 points on 7-of-12 shooting (1-of-3 FTs), with 19 rebounds, four assists, two blocks and one turnover through 32 minutes of action.

Drummond makes these monster lines look ordinary, and he has been simply phenomenal since the break with averages of 16.0 points, 14.8 rebounds, 2.0 blocks and 0.7 steals per game on 52.4 percent shooting from the field. He has grabbed 430 offensive rebounds on the season, and the only other player in the league over 300 offensive rebounds is DeAndre Jordan with 383. Drummond is going to be an elite fantasy asset for many years to come for those punting the free throw category.

Andre Drummond and Pistons head coach patched things up after a quick disagreement during Wednesday's game against the Celtics.

Van Gundy benched Drummond briefly during the third quarter after the coach thought his young center looked disengaged on the court. "I just brought him back in from the end of the bench, into the team," Van Gundy said. "I don't have a problem when guys are pissed off at me. I don't. But they can't check out on their teammates because they're pissed off at me, and I think he understood that and came back and was fine." Drummond was still able to post 22 points and 14 boards in the loss, so fantasy owners shouldn't worry about any lasting effects here.

Andre Drummond scored 22 points with 14 boards and one block against the Celtics on Wednesday.

He made 11-of-19 from the field and missed all three from the line to give him a ridiculous 39.0 usage rate. The increase in usage rate has been a theme for Drummond this season, but his efficiency is down quite a bit. Don't forget, he's still just 21 years old, so he could become a more developed offensive weapon very soon.
Apr 8 - 11:01 PM

Andre Drummond scored 14 points on 5-of-12 shooting with 22 rebounds and six blocks over 43 minutes on Friday against the Bulls.

Drummond isn't the fantasy player he was last season due to poor field goal shooting but this is what it looks like when everything is going well for him this season.
Apr 4 - 12:58 AM

Andre Drummond got into early foul trouble against the Pistons, but still managed to come up with 13 points, nine rebounds and two steals.

He didn't have a block, or a monster stat line, but things also could have been much worse. He also hit just 1-of-7 free throws, but that shouldn't shock anyone at this point.
Apr 1 - 10:11 PM

Andre Drummond took advantage of Miami's injury woes to finish Sunday's road loss with a career-high 32 points (14-of-17 FGs, 4-of-7 FTs), 14 rebounds, two assists, one steal, two blocks and zero turnovers.

Hassan Whiteside (hand) and Chris Andersen (calf) were both out for Miami, giving Drummond a delectable matchup vs. Udonis Haslem at center. He took full advantage of the matchup, becoming the 10th player since 2010 to score 32+ points while shooting at least 82.0 percent from the field -- Ersan Ilyasova achieved the same feat during his 34-point outburst on Thursday. Greg Monroe (knee) doesn't have a clear return date so Drummond will continue to gorge himself in the Pistons' frontcourt.
Mar 29 - 8:48 PM

The Pistons beat the Raptors on Tuesday, 108-104, aided by Andre Drummond's massive evening -- he had 21 points, 18 rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block without any turnovers in 33 minutes.

The bad news is that he shot 8-of-21 from the field and 5-of-10 from the free throw line. The 21 shots were the second-most of the season for Drummond, who has stepped up with Greg Monroe (knee) on the sidelines over the Pistons' past four games.
Mar 24 - 10:41 PM

Andre Drummond scored 18 points and pulled down 22 boards in Sunday's overtime win vs. the Celtics.

He also added two assists and four blocks on the night, and the only complaint about his line was the fact that he shot just 2-of-11 from the free throw line. Drummond wasn't even a lock to play at all this week due to a concussion he suffered on Mar. 14, so his owners have to be thrilled about the big man's production. If Drummond ever improves his free throw shooting, his ceiling would be insane.
Mar 22 - 8:58 PM

Andre Drummond's recent concussion didn't limit him on Tuesday, as he recorded 16 points, 16 rebounds, two steals and five blocks in a winning effort vs. Memphis.

Greg Monroe's absence shifted a heavy burden onto Drummond, who added one assist and knocked down 4-of-6 free throws in the Pistons' much-needed win. Fantasy owners couldn't have asked for more, as Drummond was fortunate to even be cleared for action tonight.

Andre Drummond (concussion) will play against Grizzlies on Tuesday

Drummond was able to quickly clear the NBA's concussion protocol and should be inserted into all fantasy lineups for Tuesday. There's a good chance that Marc Gasol will sit on the second game of a back-to-back, so Drummond should have a relatively easy matchup against the Grizzlies.
Mar 17 - 11:33 AM

Andre Drummond cleared the NBA's concussion protocol and will play against the Grizzlies on Tuesday.

He suffered the concussion on Saturday and this might be one of the fastest times a player has ever cleared the concussion protocol since the NBA implemented it. The Pistons have been playing horrible basketball and have lost 10 in a row, moving them up to the No. 7 spot in the lottery. He should be good to go against the frontcourt tandem of Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol -- they might rest on a road back-to-back game, by the way. Drummond appears to be safe to start in all leagues.
Mar 16 - 2:05 PM

Andre Drummond suffered a concussion during Saturday's game vs. the Jazz and he will not return.

Drummond will now have to undergo the league's protocol for concussion testing, and he should be considered highly doubtful to play vs. the Grizzlies on Tuesday. Greg Monroe will likely be the primary beneficiary of this news, while Anthony Tolliver and Joel Anthony would likely see an uptick in minutes as well. We will provide another update on Drummond's status as soon as we know more.

Andre Drummond went off for 22 points, a career-high 27 rebounds, two steals and two blocks on 11-of-25 shooting in Wednesday's loss to the Warriors.

The fact the Pistons lost when Drummond played so well, and Stephen Curry played so poorly, speaks to just how good the Warriors are. Greg Monroe added 20 points, eight boards, a steal and two blocks, and the Pistons attempted 88 two-pointers tonight. That's the highest number of attempts from inside the arc in a non-OT game since 1993, which is the same year Doggystyle, Midnight Marauders & 36 Chambers came out. Thanks to Rotoworld's Mike Gallagher for that tidbit. Drummond also had an amazing 17 offensive boards, which has only been done three times since 1986 (Dennis Rodman, Jayson Williams and Charles Oakley).
