Andre Drummond is keeping it pretty real when it comes to his future — telling TMZ Sports when it comes to blockbuster trade rumors, “Anything is possible in this league.” The rumors are heating up that the Detroit Pistons star could be shipped out before the season starts — and even engaged with a Twitter fan this week who suggested Drummond could be part of a mega trade to Cleveland for Kyrie Irving. But when we asked about it, he didn’t exactly rule it out — “I play for Detroit now, so we’ll keep it at that.”
Former Detroit Pistons forward Josh Smith was born and raised Georgia, but he can relate to the struggles going on in Flint. As the high-flyer waits for another NBA opportunity, he’s busy training and spending time with family in his home state, according to his father Pete Smith, but also lending a helping hand in underserved communities. Smith is set to donate $5,000 to the Flint Development Center, formerly identified as Bunch Elementary School. The gymnasium is soon being renamed in honor of Chazz McCall, who is still regarded as one of the most influential community school directors in the city’s history.
