Pistons, Hawks reportedly discuss Andre Drummond trade

Detroit Pistons center Andre Drummond is reportedly on the trade market.

The Pistons have spoken with several teams, including the Atlanta Hawks, about a deal for the 26-year-old big man, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

“The Hawks have discussed sending a package that includes a 2020 first-round pick via the Brooklyn Nets and the salary-cap relief of expiring contracts for Detroit,” Wojnarowski reports. “A potential deal would include other assets.”

Whether it’s to Atlanta or another franchise, there’s a growing belief that Drummond will be traded before the Feb. 6 deadline, per ESPN. At the moment, no deal is imminent.

Drummond can test free agency this summer if he declines his $28.75 million player option for the 2020-21 season. He told reporters in August that he planned to become a free agent.

“I’m a free agent next summer,” he said. “It should be fun. I’m excited.”

Drummond is averaging a career-high 17.6 points and a league-best 15.8 rebounds in 33 games this season, his eighth in the NBA. The former ninth overall pick has spent his entire career with the Pistons, earning two All-Star appearances and three rebounding titles.
