Report: Andre Drummond Nearing Extension with the Pistons

Andre Drummond is not going anywhere. According to ESPN’s Marc Stein, Drummond and the Pistons are nearing an extension.

The deal is said to be for 5-years and around $130 million. Drummond’s deal t re-sign with Detroit is for the max.

Drummond had a career year with the Pistons last season. He averaged 16.2 points and 14.8 rebounds per game. He also averaged over a steal and a block per contest.

Drummond was drafted by Detroit in the 2012 NBA Draft with the 9th overall pick. He has spent his entire career a Piston, and that will not change.

There was never any doubt that the Pistons would re-sign Drummond. The Pistons and Drummond have always been committed to each other. Detroit has assembled a threatening team around Drummond, and made it scarier earlier today when they signed point guard Ish Smith.

Andre Drummond is close to being liked up as a Detroit Piston for 5 years, plenty of time for the Pistons to make a few runs in the NBA Playoffs.
