Andre Drummond says Pistons must improve chemistry instead of tweaking roster
Last season, the Detroit Pistons made the postseason and seemed like a young team on the rise in the Eastern Conference. But this season, the Pistons were unable to build on their success from the last year and just missed out on the NBA playoffs.
The Pistons’ inconsistencies were the main reason why Detroit struggled at times this season. But while adding a few new pieces in the offseason could likely help Detroit, Pistons big man Andre Drummond has a different idea. Drummond believes that if the Pistons just improve their team chemistry, they will be better next season.
“I don’t think we need to do any changes,” Drummond told reporters. “We had a lot of bumps in the road last season with different things going on, and it took everybody out of sync.”
“With this summer coming up, we have to do a better job staying connected — the more stuff we do together, the better our camaraderie will be,” Drummond said.
“Right now is the most important time for our team, to rest, get ourselves together, come together collectively and come up with what we need to do together,” Drummond said.
Drummond could be on the right path but the Pistons will actually have to follow up on his plan if they want to be back in the playoffs next season.
