The Detroit Pistons were a solid team at home last year, posting a record of 18-15. Unfortunately, their road record was atrocious, at 7-26.
The addition of Andre Drummond won’t pay immediate benefits but being able to have two big men on the front line will be a huge deal in the future. If Drummond can provide the rebounding and shot-blocking, Greg Monroe will take care of the offense.
Brandon Knight will need to continue his development and could be an All-Star in the league someday. It won’t be this year, but the Pistons are on the right track and will be relevant again soon.
Andre Drummond proves to be worthy of the hype and solidifies a defense that was already pretty good. Corey Maggette provides consistent bench offense and Brandon Knight develops quickly. Pistons narrowly miss the playoffs and end up just below .500.
Drummond is more Hasheem Thabeet than Dwight Howard and shows that he’s not ready to contribute. Knight and Rodney Stuckey clash and the team continues their road woes. Another 25-win season and no advancement as a team.
