Today, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported that the Detroit Pistons and Atlanta Hawks have engaged with one another on a trade centered around Andre Drummond.
With the news of Detroit talking to another team about Drummond, three other teams have entered the conversation as being interested in the two-time all-star.
According to Vincent Goodwill of Yahoo! Sports, the Boston Celtics, Dallas Mavericks, and Toronto Raptors have also shown a desire to acquire Drummond.
Goodwill cites that Drummond has a relationship with Raptors guard Kyle Lowry and Mavericks big man Kristaps Porzingis.
Drummond, 26, has averaged 17.6 points and 15.8 rebounds per game this season. He has made strides in his game each year he has been in the league and over the last season and a half, has shown great progress on the defensive end of the floor. This year he has averaged two steals and 1.8 blocks per game.
The Pistons are 12-23 so far this season, 11th in the Eastern Conference. It has been a disaster of a season for the Pistons, who are now looking at the prospects of a rebuild straight in the eyes. Trading Drummond would be a decision that would begin a rebuild.
Multiple reports have suggested that a trade involving Drummond is not imminent.
