ESPN Analysts Love Andre Drummond

Analysts in two separate articles over at ESPN project Andre Drummond to emerge as one of the top centers in the league - THIS YEAR - and to be the very best center in the NBA in 5 years.

This first article is for Insiders only so I'll just use a quick quote. It projects him to be the second best C in the league in 2013-14, behind only Dwight Howard.

2. Andre Drummond, Detroit Pistons

Projected 2013-14 WARP: 10.1

"Drummond was a monster in limited minutes last year and he was a monster during the Orlando Summer League. Obviously, the ATH system is highly enamored of his abilities. Much of his projected value stems from huge block and rebound rates. He's also a standout in foul-drawing and steals, which makes him 4-for-4 in the categories ATH looks at as athletic markers."

In this other article (good even for Outsiders), 2 out of 5 writers peg Penguin as the most promising center in the NBA, and two others think he'll be the best C in the league (and a perennial MVP candidate) in 5 years. That's 4 out of 5 who think he's going to dominate the NBA in the very near future.

This is a good thing... especially since Josh Smith is the only other Piston ranked in the Top 10 at any other position by these ESPN writers and analysts.

Looks like we may very well have found our superstar.

Now, about those FT's...
