NBA Draft Rumors 2012: Detroit Pistons Interested In Andre Drummond In Latest Mock Draft

Former UConn center Andre Drummond was once again taken in the top ten of a 2012 NBA Mock Draft. In the latest SB Nation NBA Mock Draft, Drummond was projected to go to the Detroit Pistons at No. 9.

Here's what Tom Ziller said about the selection:

"As I remain convinced that Lillard and Marshall will go inside the top 10, I'm pretty confident that Drummond will drop. 'Unskilled with an embattled reputation as a hard worker' isn't a red flag. It's a poison label. But at some point in the first round, the potential reward outweighs the risk. I think it's right around here. (And I think Ben Wallace gets hired as a big man coach specifically to work with Drummond on everything but free throws.)" (via SB Nation)

Ziller also thinks the Trail Blazers could take Drummond at No. 6.
