Drummond is a two-time All-Star but has an opt-out in his contract for next season. The Pistons had been shopping him believing he would become a free agent and they would lose him.
Because of his contract status, the Pistons didn’t get a huge haul in return. Sources say they will get John Henson, Brandon Knight and a second-round draft pick in 2023 — the lesser pick of Golden State or Cleveland.
Drummond, 26, is averaging a career-best 17.8 points to go with his 15.8 rebounds per game. He has led the league in rebounding in three previous seasons.
He was the ninth overall pick in the 2012 draft by the Pistons.
