Hey y’all. I talked to Duncan Smith (@DuncanSmithNBA) talk about the Pistons’ opening-night win over the Pacers, how Contract-Year Andre Drummond affects the Pistons on the court and on the balance sheet, and what Blake Griffin’s injury means in the short-term.
Andre was a monster last night on both ends last night. He (obviously? probably?) won’t average 30 and 20 every game, but Duncan and I talk through what he could be worth if he plays that way the whole season... and what he could find from teams if outside factors affect the NBA salary cap. Duncan and I also talk about Luke Kennard’s career night, and Derrick Rose’s distribution in the second half.
