Detroit Pistons shooting guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope received 27 votes and center Andre Drummond 14, but it wasn’t enough to propel either player to one of the NBA’s two All-Defensive teams, announced on Wednesday.
Caldwell-Pope, 23, received three first-place votes for his position, finishing 10th among guards. Boston’s Avery Bradley and Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul took home first-team honors at the guard position while Memphis’ Tony Allen and Chicago’s Jimmy Butler rounded out the guard unit on the second team.
Drummond, who finished second among centers in steals and led the league with 14.8 rebounds per game, finished fifth at his position, reeling in five first place votes and landing behind Clippers center DeAndre Jordan (first team), Miami’s Hassan Whiteside (second team), Utah’s Rudy Gobert and San Antonio center Tim Duncan (honorable mentions).
