NBA Draft 2012: Andre Drummond Might Fall To Pistons

During the season, it was a near lock that Connecticut's Andre Drummond would be picked somewhere in the top-five. But at the NBA combine, the buzz was that Drummond might be there for the Detroit Pistons at No. 9, according to Keith Langlois of Pistons.com.

If Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Bradley Beal are next off the board after Davis, Cleveland could look hard at Drummond at No. 4. Portland is another possibility at 6 – or the Trail Blazers are prime candidates to trade out of that spot to a team targeting Drummond. But if Drummond slips past 6, there’s a chance he’ll be on the board when the Pistons pick at No. 9.

Langlois went on to add that many of the players the Pistons were tied to at the combine had up-and-down college careers. Those players included Perry Jones III and Quincy Miller of Baylor.
