Bradford Doolittle, writing for ESPN.com, has an article today ranking the best ‘future big threes’ in the NBA, looking ahead to 2016. He has the Pistons trio of Greg Monroe-Brandon Knight-Andre Drummond ninth on that list:

It’s really interesting to read if you have Insider. If not, the teams ranked ahead of Detroit are Oklahoma City (Durant, Harden, Westbrook), L.A. Clippers (Paul, Griffin, Jordan), New Orleans (Davis, Anderson, Gordon), Miami (James, Wade, Bosh), Minnesota (Love, Rubio, Pekovic), Atlanta (Smith, Horford, Lou Williams), Utah (Millsap, Jefferson, Favors) and Indiana (George, Hibbert, Granger).
