Andre Drummond and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope were the only two Detroit Pistons to receive any votes for NBA All-Defensive honors, but neither made the respective teams. Marcus Morris did not receive any votes, and I'm sure he didn't appreciate that.
Drummond received 14 total votes with five voters believing he deserved first team over DeAndre Jordan and Hassan Whiteside. KCP received more votes overall than Drummond (27), but curiously obtained fewer first team votes (3). Well, KCP's position was deeper defensively than the center position, that's all.
Hopefully we'll see both of these guys get even more votes next year. In 2014-2015 Drummond received one second-team vote and KCP was noticeably missing from the voting results altogether. Drummond also received a vote in 2013-2014. Progress!
Here are the results per Marc J. Spears:
