Gores Says Keeping Drummond A Top Priority
Thursday, October 10, 2019

Detroit Pistons owner Tom Gores says keeping Andre Drummond in the fold is a top priority that the team needs to take another step forward after making the playoffs a season ago. Gores was on hand Monday at the opening of the Pistons' new training center and corporate headquarters in midtown Detroit. The new facility completes the team's move to the city from suburban Auburn Hills. The Pistons are entering their third season playing their games at Little Caesars Arena in downtown.

Gores was asked afterward about a possible contract extension for Drummond, the
team's standout center. The 26 year old is under contract through the season and has a $28.751 million player option for 2020-21. Gores re-emphasized how dedicated the team is to Drummond and Drummond to the team. Gores says Drummond is very underrated in a lot of ways for what he does, and culturally he has been so good for this team.
