Andre Drummond expressed his desire to stay with the Detroit Pistons amid trade rumors.

"I'm not a quitter, for one. I was never brought up to be a quitter. ... I love being here. I would love to play here the rest of my career," said Drummond following the Pistons' 111-104 win over the Warriors on Saturday night.

Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the Pistons and Hawks were engaged in trade discussions for Drummond.

The 26-year-old has a $29 million player option for next season. 

Drummond said he was unaffected by the trade rumors.

"Obviously, the talks have started, so these questions will start to come. I've been looking forward to them coming, but for me, I'm just going to continue to play the game I play, play here in Detroit where I love to be, and whatever happens, happens."
