Pistons reportedly discussing Andre Drummond trade with Hawks, others

Andre Drummond is in position to become a free agent after the season, and the Detroit Pistons may not feel confident in their chances of re-signing him. That is likely why they are shopping the star big man in trade talks.

The Pistons have had discussions with the Atlanta Hawks and other teams about a potential Drummond trade, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports. While no deal is imminent, teams reportedly believe Detroit will move the two-time All-Star before the trade deadline next month.

Drummond has a $28 million player option for the 2020-21 season that he will likely decline. The 26-year-old is averaging a career-high 17.6 points to go along with 15.8 rebounds and 1.8 blocks per game, and plenty of teams will be willing to offer him a max contract next summer. The Pistons can obviously offer him more, but Drummond may be ready to move to a better situation and perhaps team up with other star players.

We have already heard of at least one other team that has interest in acquiring Drummond, who appeared to hint this past offseason that he could be planning to leave Detroit.
