Andre Drummond, who is eligible for a contract extension prior to the November 2 deadline, could earn as much as $120 on his next deal.
ESPN reports Drummond and Harrison Barnes as "best positioned to secure a lucrative extension this month," but that's just pointing out the obvious. Drummond could wait until the offseason to sign his next deal, but regardless of when it's inked, he's going to get paid either way. Detroit will not allow their franchise center to walk out that door. If you're okay with punting free throw percentage, Drummond can return first-round value to your team. Oct 12 - 9:19 AM

Reggie Jackson said he communicated with Andre Drummond every day.

Jackson had more assists to Drummond than any other Piston while 'Dre made 70 percent from the field off Jackson's passes, too. Clearly, Drummond will be involved more in pick-and-roll, which is a good thing based on how he came in at 87.8 percentile (Synergy). He's going to post some massive lines this year.

Stan Van Gundy said that he expects Andre Drummond's minutes to go up this season with Greg Monroe no longer in Detroit.

"I would think [his minutes] would go up some and I think that’s a good thing for him in terms of his development," Van Gundy said of Drummond. "He’ll have to play through some situations that he didn’t have to play through for his first few years in the league, so I think that’ll be good for him. And hopefully he grows into a more consistent guy that you can count on from night to night." Minutes are key to fantasy value, so it's a bit scary to think how much Drummond can improve after posting averages of 13.8 points, 13.5 rebounds and 1.9 blocks per game through 30.5 minutes of action last season. Drummond is a top-10 asset when you ignore free throw percentage.

Pistons' shooting coach Dave Hopla said that his goal is to get Andre Drummond to be able to hit at least 50 percent of his free throw attempts.

Drummond shot a putrid 38.9 percent from the charity stripe last season, so that area of his game could certainly use some improvement. While he's still a guy that will tank any team’s free throw percentage, if we ignore that category, Drummond is a top-10 asset to own in standard 9-cat leagues.

Andre Drummond posted some videos on his Instagram account showing off his ball-handling skills.

This is pretty irrelevant, but he has made it very clear on social media that he has been working hard this summer and he should be in excellent shape for the upcoming season. Drummond will be playing for a new contract this season even though it's basically a lock that he will get a max deal, but a little added motivation never hurt anybody. Drummond is an early-round target despite his terrible free throw percentage.

The Pistons will head to Vegas on Aug. 31 in order to work out with some UFC trainers.

Andre Drummond and Reggie Jackson were instrumental in making this happen, and while the main goal will be bonding as a team, it's great to see the players get a head start before training camp. Drummond is poised for a monster season with his eyes set on a maximum contract extension, so he is worth grabbing in the early rounds despite the fact that he still can't hit free throws to save his life. Brandon Jennings (Achilles) will also be in attendance at Vegas, but it's not clear if he will participate.

Stan Van Gundy said that he isn't worried about teams intentionally putting Andre Drummond on the free throw line.

"I don't think it's hopeless,'' Van Gundy said of Drummond's free throw shooting. "I think my hope would be that this year we could get him up over 50 percent and we could start pushing 60 percent. If you get him over 50 percent then it's not really an effective strategy. If you get to 52 percent then you're having a quality possession." Drummond shot just 38.9 percent from the line last season, but the Pistons hope that shooting coach Dave Hopla will help. Drummond is already an elite asset in fantasy leagues despite his struggles at the charity stripe, so any improvements will obviously be huge for his value.

Andre Drummond was busy in Thursday's Team USA scrimmage with 27 points and 16 rebounds.

Victor Oladipo had some nice highlights, DeMarcus Cousins had some cool stuff going on for his birthday, DeMar DeRozan missed a lot of shots and there were a lot of uncontested shots. Besides that, you didn't miss much if you watched preseason NFL. This game made Summer League look like Spurs-Clippers.

Stan Van Gundy recently admitted that Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe "aren't the best fit."

In other words, SVG told us what we already knew. "And quite honestly as much as he is comfortable taking that shot, Greg's a pretty smart guy and he knows what his best game is. If you asked Greg what he is, Greg will tell you he's a low-post scorer and a rebounder. That's where he wants to get." With an inability from either big man to space the floor, the pairing was never going to work long-term.

Andre Drummond will attend Team USA minicamp.

Drummond has a desire to play in the 2016 Olympics, and this is the first step toward him securing a spot on the roster. It has no impact on his fantasy value.

The league is unlikely to alter the rules to address the 'Hack-a-Shaq' strategy, according to commissioner Adam Silver.

There was a "strong sense" among the league's board of governors and competition committee that the rule should not be changed. Fantasy owners can feel free to punt FT percentages after drafting Andre Drummond, DeAndre Jordan or Dwight Howard this season, as they'll once again be parading to the line.
Jul 14 - 8:26 PM

The Pistons will begin talks with Andre Drummond regarding a long-term contract extension in the next couple of weeks.

Drummond is clearly the face of the franchise, and this will be one of the easiest decisions Stan Van Gundy has to make. Drummond has made it clear that he wants to stick around in Detroit, so the two sides should have no problem reaching an agreement on a max deal. Look for him to build off a solid 2014-15 season in which he averaged 13.8 points, 13.5 boards and 1.9 blocks without missing a single game.

Andre Drummond wants to sign an extension with the Pistons this offseason, a source told the Detroit Free Press.

Drummond, still on his rookie deal, is eligible to sign a long-term extension, and with the Pistons planning to build around him for the foreseeable future under Stan Van Gundy, the two sides shouldn't have much of an issue in terms of finding common ground when it's time to sit at the negotiating table.

Andre Drummond said he'll be working on his post game this offseason.

"I've added a lot of new things to my arsenal," Drummond said. "A lot of new parts to my game. I've been working on my footwork a lot. Obviously, I've slimmed down a lot, too, working on my conditioning to be able to run a lot more than I was doing throughout the season last year. My main focus is to continue to polish my post game and work from there." Drummond has reportedly already lost 15 pounds since his season reached a conclusion back in April, and with him entering a contract year, he's primed for another monster season in 2015.
Jun 4 - 6:55 PM

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.
