Drummond Enjoying Camaraderie With Pistons
In Orlando for the AirTran Airways Pro Summer League, Andre Drummond is focused on basketball and building camaraderie with Pistons teammates.
“It’s a brotherhood here,” Drummond said. “We all look out for each other. It’s the best coaching staff I’ve been with. We all just look out for each other and we all just have one goal, which is to win a lot of games.
“I’m glad to be here – glad to be a Detroit Piston.”
Drummond has impressed with his focus and attention to detail.
“He really has a desire to learn,” Pistons assistant John Loyer, serving as the team’s coach in Orlando, said after Sunday’s final practice before Monday’s opener with Utah. “He has very good hands, he’s got very good athleticism to run the floor, but the best thing I really liked about him is he was very open and very into getting coached. He really wants to be a good player. He had a great attitude all week, had great energy all week, and our veteran guys did a nice job bringing him along.”
