ESPN.com published a Pistons report from Zach Lowe this morning. It’s an interesting read that examines the uncertainty and promise of the team, with tidbits on Andre Drummond, Reggie Jackson and the team’s trade prospects. Van Gundy took exception to calling it “illuminating.” “I’ve heard about it,” Van Gundy said. “He throws a lot of stuff out there, so I don’t know if that’s illuminating. I could write a lot of stuff, too, but would that be illuminating? Would it be illuminating or would it be (expletive)? There’s a fine line between illuminating and (expletive).”
Storyline: Andre Drummond Trade?

They needed talent; they would figure out the rest later. The figuring it out part has been harder than expected, especially with both Jackson and Drummond plateauing. Detroit has quietly explored the trade market for each of its franchise centerpieces, according to sources across the league, and come away disappointed with the potential return. (Van Gundy himself has said anyone is available for “the right price.”)

Storyline: Andre Drummond Trade?
This is not what the coaches want. Van Gundy is on Drummond to either back his way to the rim, or face up and drive — a tactic Drummond might use more if he felt confident in his foul shooting. They have their tense moments. Both are close with Tom Gores, the Pistons’ owner, and each freely admits they talk with Gores about the other in terms that might not always be the most flattering. “Whatever we talk about with the owner is between us,” Drummond said. “But Stan and I leave nothing unspoken.”

The team had just reviewed its pick-and-roll coverages at halftime. Van Gundy wanted Drummond to corral Lowry at the 3-point arc instead of laying back. The Pistons spent training camp testing a more aggressive defense, and Drummond blew away the coaching staff with his speed and footwork. Once the season started, Drummond sank closer to the rim. “There’s a tug of war going on between us,” Van Gundy told ESPN.com.
