who else are they gonna take? henson? dude is no KG and will not put on much weight. Im not really a fan of any of our options, but Ill take the flier on drummond. I also like leonard. anything to move monroe back over to the 4.
hows that? for the past two years they have been talking about trying to move monroe to the 4. Hes a very quick big with an incredible body and a lot of potential. As a pistons fan, I couldnt be happier. much better than henson, leonard or zeller, the only other options (jones I guess).
drummond will need to work hard to learn skills. right now he is living off of athleticism.
whether that happens or not, he serves as a rim protector. as he is he seems like a deandre jordan type player with a dwight howard body.
will be an interesting combo with monroe. greg is going to have different kind of matchups defensively at the 4. the fact that he steals the ball a lot may help him there, but its going to be an adjustment.
offensively, now he will have the opportunity to take advantage of his size and strength a little more.
