Andre Drummond Named to All-NBA Third Team

Detroit Pistons center Andre Drummond has been named to the All-NBA Third Team, the league revealed on Thursday.

Drummond, 22, wrapped up his fourth year as a professional with career-high averages in points (16.2) and rebounds (a league-leading 14.8). In addition to earning his first all-star berth, Drummond also played a significant hand in propelling the Pistons to their first postseason appearance since 2009.

With the nod, Drummond becomes the first Pistons to earn All-NBA honors since 2007, when Chauncey Billups was similarly named to the Third Team. Billups and former Pistons center Ben Wallace were both Second Team selections in 2006.

Grant Hill is the most recent Piston to earn First Team honors following a 1996-97 season in which he averaged 21.4 points, 9.0 rebounds, and 7.3 assists for an overachieving Pistons team that won 54 games under the guidance of head coach Doug Collins.

Indiana’s Paul George, San Antonio’s LaMarcus Aldridge, Golden State’s Klay Thompson, and Toronto’s Kyle Lowry flanked Drummond on the third team while first team honors were reserved for Warriors guard Stephen Curry (receiving all first place votes), LeBron James (Cleveland), Kawhi Leonard (San Antonio), Russell Westbrook (Oklahoma City), and DeAndre Jordan (Los Angeles Clippers).
