Pistons reportedly enlist Kevin Garnett to work with centers
The Detroit Pistons still believe that Andre Drummond could become one of the NBA’s very best centers, and they’ll continue to do everything they can to get him to that point.
That includes working with an NBA icon.
According to Marc Stein of the New York Times, the Pistons quietly enlisted Kevin Garnett to work behind closed doors with Drummond and another young big man, former first-round pick Henry Ellenson.
One of the better tales heard in Vegas: The Pistons, I'm told, recently arranged for Kevin Garnett to work with Andre Drummond and Henry Ellenson in one of his signature behind-closed-doors tutoring sessions.

Drummond had his best rebounding season of his career last year, leading the NBA with 16 boards per game. He even saw his free throw percentage go from awful to merely bad, too.
Last summer, there were some rumors about Drummond’s future in Detroit. For now, they appear committed to making it work.
