I am just admiring this from afar. Congrats to all who does have him. Wow what a line!!!!

Plus: Detroit is always fighting for the 8 spot in the East and he is never hurt. A big plus especially in the fantasy playoffs.

LOL @ this joke of a blurb by rotoworld. You mean to tell me someone ranked 12th in 9cat is worth rostering? Damn I was thinking about dropping him.   Had Drummond not fouled out, he like

Looks like they’re having trouble finding a trade partner

Supposedly the Hawks were interested but they don’t want to include a first round pick and now are linked to Steven Adams 

 

Genius move on the part of the Knicks to pair both Morris brothers. It's so Knicks. So on-brand.

I haven't been watching this game, but if I had to guess based on my prior knowledge of Andre, my guess would be attitude.

 

When things have gone poorly for the Pistons in the past, Andre just completely tunes out.  And this is possibly the worst stretch we've had in the last 5 years.  I'm guessing Casey finally had enough of his BS and showed him the bench.

 

As a fantasy owner, it's definitely looking like it's advantageous for Andre to be traded now.  He would have been a way better fantasy player on the Pistons than anywhere else had we been in the running for the 8th seed, but now that we're in tank mode he's better off somewhere else.

If he were traded or a deal was imminent he would not have played at all.  They don't request to play limited minutes.  My guess is they were down and the bench brought them back in the 4th so coach left the bench guys in.  Wood was having a quarter so he let him roll.  The trade is going to happen but it will be closer to the deadline IMO.

Casey had to bench Dre because he was getting owned by Okafor. First Thompson’s career high, now this. Drummond is starting to check out. Hopefully he gets motivated by a new situation soon.

The real question is, which team is willing to give up a first rounder or young player for someone who might walk on you at the end of the season? I love Dre but he’s not Kawhi or anything.

That has been the issue.  He won’t commit until free agency so he is basically a rental.  Teams don’t want to give up a coveted first or valuable young asset to get him.

Unless someone thinks they can make a championship run with Drummond. Then convince him at the end of the year to stay by offering him a big contract. Kind of like how the Sixers did with Tobias Harris.

Now I'm glad I traded him away at the start of the season. Even if I love this guy, the situation seems tricky. I'm not sure how big of a chance he doesn't get traded. Then we have a problem in Detroit. One of the advantages owning Drummond was the playoff spot fighting Pistons. With them being crappy as they are you can't tell what Casey will do with Drummonds minutes.
