Drummond on the other hand has shown flashes of becoming one of the best centers in the NBA very very soon. He's only 19 years old. You shouldn't be trading a player of his potential and talent level at that position for anything but the elite. That comment isn't out of this realm.
Oh totally I get that. But Detroit fans clearly overrate Drummond as well as knight. I get he's great, has shown flashes of brilliance etc, but to say that you would only accept the top 2 players and another arguably top five for him is mind-blowingly dumb. Drummond has as much value to me as JV(maybe less due to him being Deandre Jordan-like on free throws) and I'd take a long hard look if offered a deal for any top 10-15 player who is not old or has health concerns. There is a difference between elite and guys who can be considered all-time greats.
