NBA Draft 2012: Pistons Sign Top Pick Andre Drummond

The Detroit Pistons' top draft choice, forward Andre Drummond, had a light stat line in the Pistons' win over the Orlando Magic in the Orlando Pro Summer League on Tuesday, but his wallet added some weight later in the day. The ninth overall pick has signed his rookie contract with the Pistons, as Keith Langlois confirmed along with a comment about Drummond from summer league coach John Loyer.

In 21 minutes against the Magic, Drummond scored three points, grabbed three rebounds and blocked a shot. As for his contract, signing is a formality with the rookie salary scale set through the latest collective bargaining agreement. Drummond is slated to make around $2 million in his first season and a little more than $6 million for the first three years.
