Gores Denies Blocking Drummond Trades: "You Probably Have The Facts Wrong"

The Pistons owner has stood behind Drummond since the team drafted him ninth overall in 2012.

Not true, Gores said Monday night after watching the Pistons get swept out of the first round of the playoffs by the Bucks.

Considering the size of Drummond's contract compared to his value on the floor, trading him could certainly be to the Pistons' benefit.

Between Drummond and Blake Griffin, the Pistons are built around two frontcourt players in a backcourt-driven league.

Asked Monday night if that remains the case, Gores said, "They’re great players."

He said he wants to meet first with head coach Dwayne Casey and acting general manager Ed Stefanski, among others.
