Default Is it time to trade Drummond?

I know he is young. He still has potential.

But, can we really build a championship team around him?

I can see keeping Griffin. He might be trade bait in 4 years. But, keeping Drummond seems like a sinking proposition to me.

This isn't the late 2000s anymore. And Drummond isn't close to as good as Dwight was. (I'm sorry to say it, but come on. Even Dwight's chunky offensive moves are better than Drummonds)

We don't have the players to spread the floor or play inside out. We don't have a slasher.

What do you guys think? Is Drummond the player holding us back?

(Mind you, Drummond is my favorite NBA player, but team trumps player in my book. Unless your name is Isiah Thomas.

Default Re: Is it time to trade Drummond?

I think Drummond's value is very high this might be the best time to trade him. I have a feeling his stats will go down next season due to Griffin and a healthy Jackson. If Drummond is on board to be the 3rd option, be more aggressive, and play his role than he should stay. Otherwise the Pistons should get some pieces that will fit better around Blake. Get a pick perhaps, some shooters of course, and a decent big man that can defend is more than adequate. Griffin gave DeAndre Jordan plenty of easy shots and lobs and DJ is less skilled than Dre.
