Andre Drummond double-doubled vs. the Bucks on Monday with 12 points (5-of-5 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs) with 13 rebounds in 18 minutes.
We heard countless reports of Drummond trying to improve his free throw shooting over the summer, and while it is a small sample size, he’s just 4-of-12 (33.3 percent) from the line during the preseason. The Pistons may have to sit him down in the fourth quarter during close games because of this glaring weakness, but Drummond is still a first-round stud if you take his FT percentage out of the equation.

Andre Drummond scored 10 points with 13 rebounds, two assists and one steal against the 76ers on Saturday.

He had an illness earlier this week and missed Thursday's game. Drummond is getting heavily involved in the offense with a 26.1 usage rate in the preseason -- up from 24.0 last year. It's fair to expect an increase in scoring to go with his 15 rebounds per game.

Andre Drummond (illness) is expected to return to Detroit's starting lineup for Saturday's preseason game vs. the 76ers.

Drummond missed Thursday's game due to the illness, but he's feeling better and should be looking forward to the head-to-head showdown with Joel Embiid. We'll let you know how he looks after the game.

Andre Drummond (illness) is a "maybe" for Saturday, according to coach Stan Van Gundy.

The Pistons started Aron Baynes on Thursday and did not unleash Boban Marjanovic. Drummond is posting some eye-popping numbers in the preseason, averaging 17.0 points, 17.0 boards, 1.5 steals and 1.5 blocks. He should have a monster season with some historically bad free throw shooting.

Andre Drummond (illness) will not play against the Hawks on Thursday.

Drummond is only dealing with an illness, so there's nothing long-term to be concerned about. The 23-year-old has had a strong preeason and is again poised to have a monster season for fantasy owners who are willing to punt free throws.

Andre Drummond exploded in the second half on Monday, finishing with 17 points, 13 rebounds, two assists, three steals and two blocks in 36 minutes.

He picked up two quick fouls in the first and only had one more the rest of the way. Drummond has been a joke on the glass with an otherworldly 30.9 total rebounding rate to go with his 25.9 usage rate in the preseason. He's almost a lock to hit 15 boards per game and could even get closer to 20 points -- he had 16.2 last year. Drummond is going to have numerous DFS explosions and he is elite in points leagues, but obviously the foul shooting woes hurt his value in standard leagues.
Oct 10 - 10:36 PM

Andre Drummond grabbed 21 boards in just 24 minutes against the Nets on Thursday, adding 17 points, one assist and one block.

He was 8-of-20 from the field and missed a lot of easy shots at the rim. Drummond said he's going to win the rebounding crown again, which almost seems like a lock as long as he stays healthy. The Pistons do seem to be more determined to get him the ball, so he might be able to add to his 16.2 points per game from last season.

Andre Drummond said he is using virtual reality to improve his free throw percentage.

You can't make this stuff up. Drummond said that he puts on a headset and watches himself making free throws at various angles. "They’re all makes, obviously, so it’s constantly watching myself shoot the same shot, over and over again, and now while I’m out there it’s second nature," he said. Drummond shot 35.5 percent from the line last season, so it's encouraging to see him so devoted to improve despite signing a max deal over the summer. His free throw shooting is the only thing holding him back from being an elite standard-league asset.
Sep 26 - 12:24 PM

Andre Drummond said he's going to win the rebounding crown again this season.

Drummond also said he's "shed about 20 pounds" this summer. He's easily the favorite to finish first in boards again with his league-leading 14.8 boards per game last year. What's more, he led the NBA in boards per game in all but one month last year -- DeAndre Jordan was first in January. Nobody will question Drummond on the glass, but the 23-year-old big man really needs to improve on his shooting.
Sep 24 - 10:36 PM

Andre Drummond said he focused on his conditioning this summer.

"I’ve had a very productive summer,’’ Drummond said. "A lot of workouts. A lot of conditioning, I’ve been working on this summer. I stayed in the best shape I could be in. I’ve been working on the little things that need to be better in my game." That's nice to hear, but what fantasy owners really want to see is an improvement in his free throw shooting after he hit just 35.5 percent from the line last season. He's 23 years old and should only improve, and he's still a first-round stud in leagues that don't count free throw percentage.

Stan Van Gundy said that Andre Drummond must "do what it takes on the mental level to get himself ready to play every night."

According to Van Gundy, consistent effort from Drummond "hasn’t quite happened yet ... He’s not quite there all the time to where he’s ready to go." SVG went on to praise Drummond's incredible potential and his dedication to offseason improvement, adding that he's "taken a different approach to his free-throw shooting [this summer]." He may simply be trying to light a fire under Drummond, but either way it's refreshing to hear more than the usual offseason pablum.

Stan Van Gundy believes that Andre Drummond and Stanley Johnson have the most potential to take noticeable steps forward this season.

"Look, [Andre Drummond's] the guy – probably he and Stanley [Johnson] are the guys who can, I think, based on their age and what they’ve done and what they’re capable of doing, who have the potential to make the biggest jumps." SVG still believes that Drummond is the face of the Pistons' franchise and said that the big man has taken a different mental approach to his free-throw shooting this offseason. While he will be an elite source of points, boards, blocks and steals, his owners will still likely need to punt free throws considering he shot 35.5 percent from the line last season.

Andre Drummond has been working on his free throws, but he dismissed the report that he would try shooting them underhand.

"I'm just really just continuing to work on back-to-the-basket stuff," Drummond said, "and working on getting better from the foul line. I'm going to stick with the formula I have now." He shot just 35.5 percent from the line last season which forced a lot of his owners to punt free throws, but hopefully his "formula" will help him show some improvement in his age-23 season. If you ignore the free throws, Drummond had an elite season with averages of 16.2 points, 14.8 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 1.4 blocks per game.
Aug 15 - 1:15 PM

Andre Drummond has officially signed his five-year extension with the Pistons worth $130 million.

"Re-signing Andre was a top priority for us this offseason," said Stan Van Gundy. "The offensive and defensive numbers speak for themselves, but more importantly, his commitment to the organization has allowed us to put together a young group of players that will grow together and continue to move the franchise forward." After averaging 16.2 points, 14.8 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 1.4 blocks per game last season, Drummond will be a valid first-round target for those punting free throws.
Jul 15 - 12:54 PM

According to ESPN's Marc Stein, Andre Drummond's five-year, $130 million deal with the Pistons is done.

The two sides wasted no time in reaching an agreement. Drummond will have a player option after the fourth year, but he will be the face of the franchise for many years to come. Drummond shot just 35.5 percent from the free throw line last season which limited his value in standard leagues, but he also averaged 16.2 points, 14.8 boards, 1.4 blocks and 1.5 steals on 52.1 percent shooting from the field.
