Next season, Andre Drummond’s second as a professional will be big for him. It seems cliché to say that someone’s sophomore season is important, as obviously continual development is important for any athlete, especially an NBA center. But for Drummond, who SB Nation recently predictedwould be the league’s third best overall player come 2017, it is time to let the league at large know just how good he can be. With his combination of size, speed, and athleticism, Drummond has the potential to be a franchise-caliber player, and this season will be an excellent opportunity for him to demonstrate what he can do for Detroit (or another franchise for that matter). A back injury cut his rookie season short, and in the 60 games he did play in, he logged only twenty minutes per contest. Still the University of Connecticut product averaged a solid 13 points and 13 boards and almost three blocks per 36 minutes. Not too bad for a rookie considered “raw.”  Image from: Thatnbalotterypick.comOn to...
