Drummond Trusts Frank To Handle His Role
Andre Drummond is averaging 20.1 minutes this season, but he has been extremely productive in the limited time, averaging 7.5 points and 7.4 rebounds.
Drummond trusts Lawrence Frank to monitor his role and adjust his playing time when the time comes.
"There comes a time," Drummond said. "He knew I wasn't ready to play 20-plus minutes when I was first coming up. So he gradually threw me into the game and knew how to get the best out of me and get 100 percent out of me.
"I trust Lawrence. He knows what he's doing to get the best out of me."
Still, Drummond knows he can play five to seven more minutes if asked.
"Without a doubt," he said.
