DBB Podcast: Andre Drummond on Team USA, Greg Monroe and the QO

New, comments
Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports

Matt Watson, Mike Payne and Kevin Sawyer of DetroitBadBoys.com are joined by SBNation.com's Ricky O'Donnell (@SBN_Ricky), who attended Team USA's scrimmage Thursday in Chicago, to discuss Team USA's latest injury scare with DeMarcus Cousins, how that might affect Andre Drummond's chances to make the final roster and whether Pistons fans should even want Drummond to continue playing given the injury risk.

Later, the DBB crew discuss the recent report that Greg Monroe has decided to sign Detroit's qualifying offer, which would make him an unrestricted free agent next summer, as well as Monroe's tweets denying the Pistons ever offered a contract in the first place. Is there hostility between Moose and Detroit's front office -- or is Monroe simply annoyed at the media for leaking one side of the conversation? And what role does DBB play in amplifying every rumor?

Following Paul George's injury and reports that Roy Hibbert is on the block, are the Pacers falling apart -- and does that open the door for the Pistons? And should fans get excited about seeing the NBA's new 2014-15 schedule? Maybe not, but hey, it's still more fun than baseball. All that and more.

As always, if you enjoy the show, please take 15 seconds to give us a positive rating and review in iTunes.
