One of the prime reasons that Andre Drummond fell to the Detroit Pistons with the ninth overall pick in the draft was a concern about his dedication and attentiveness. However, the Pistons found out quickly that he was very adept at picking up every bit of teaching they gave him. Rather, it was his body that was an issue, according to Keith Langlois of Pistons.com.

"Drummond’s body was out of balance, one side ahead of the other, and his upper body, in particular, needed strength. He didn't stand erect, they noticed, and that worked to negate his enormous wing span," Langlois wrote.

Since then, coach Lawrence Frank has seen tremendous growth in the rookie.
