The Charlotte Hornets had a pretty surprising start of the season, winning 6 out of their first 15 games. They certainly would love to strengthen their squad, and they are looking into possibility to trade for the Pistons‘ center Andre Drummond.
26-year old Andre is currently having best season of his career, averaging 18.6 points and 16.8 rebounds a night. However, Pistons’ season has been a disaster so far, as they have only 4 wins, and are currently on a 5 game losing streak.
Pistons on paper seem like a very good team, with great squad depth. However, that didn’t translate onto the court. It seems like D-Rose, Blake and Andre just don’t fit together, evem though they are all great quality players.
The Hornets would need to send a great offer to the Pistons in order to convince them to give up ‘Dre. The Hornets salary cap situation will be much better in 2020 offseason, so they could potentially sign Andre in the free season if he opts out of his current contract.
