“I had a couple of great meetings, one with the management, with Ed Stefanski, who’s a great GM, a great guy, he’s a main reason why the job is appealing, along with (Blake Griffin) and also Andre Drummond and Reggie Jackson,” Casey told Nichols. “I had a great meeting the other night with Tom Gores at his home in L.A. A great guy, a very dynamic owner, very impressed with him and his leadership, his vision. “But again, we’re talking now, nothing is finalized. So, it’s still in the talking phase.”
To one NBA front-office executive, that criticism sounded familiar โ€” it was much the same for Detroit center Andre Drummond when he came out of Connecticut in 2012. Drummond, only 24 now, is still developing, but has led the league in rebounding twice and was chosen for two All-Star teams. โ€œWe were told a lot of the same things about Drummond (six) years ago, that he didnโ€™t love basketball and didnโ€™t care enough about improving and that he would disappear for whole sections of a game,โ€ the exec said. “What happens a lot of times is, if youโ€™re a 7-footer, you go through and play in high school and you dominate just because you are so much bigger than everyone else. You donโ€™t have to work as hard as the guys who are 6-4 to stand out. You get to college and you have to learn to be involved in every play.โ€
