Aside from Drummond, who’s to say the Pistons won’t move other pieces. Derrick Rose is playing his best basketball since the 2011-12 season before his injury. He proved last season with Minnesota he can play off the ball while shooting 37% from 3-point range.
Rose, 31, is owed $7.5 million next season and is averaging 17.3 points and 5.7 assists per game while being the general for the third-ranked bench in the league this season. His play in Detroit has been strong. Look no further than a 28-point performance against the Lakers, continuing to drive inside even with the Lakers totaling 20 blocks.
His relentless drive and will to win is something a contender should be drawn to. Before the season, Rose said he wanted to win a championship with the Pistons. But with Drummond on the trade block, Detroit will be taking a step back.
Markieff Morris is another intriguing option, signing a one-year, $3.2 million deal with a $3.6 million player option for the 2020-21 season. He’s likely increased his value by shooting a career-best 41.1% from 3-point range this season.
