The Detroit Pistons aren’t getting significant offers from teams in Andre Drummond trade talks, failing to see a first-round pick in any package thus far, per The Athletic’s James Edwards III.

Edwards goes over some teams who make sense for Drummond and other that don’t. In the article, he adds that the Pistons are only getting expiring contracts in any potential offers for Drummond. Obviously Drummond is a high-caliber center and one of the best — if not the best — rebounder in the NBA. Problem is his salary is high and the Pistons don’t have much leverage considering Drummond’s contract has one season left and the salary is $28.7 million.
