      Pistons nab UConn's Drummond at No. 9

      AUBURN HILLS, Mich. - The Detroit Pistons have selected Connecticut big man Andre Drummond with the ninth pick in the NBA draft.



      The 6-foot-10, 270-pound Drummond averaged 10 points and 7.6 rebounds last season as an 18-year-old freshman for the Huskies. He'll join Brandon Knight and Greg Monroe - Detroit's last two first-round picks - as part of a young nucleus the Pistons hope they can build around. Detroit has missed the playoffs the last three seasons.



      The Pistons took Knight last year at No. 8 when some of the top big men were already taken. Now they're adding another inside presence who may be able to make an impact down low alongside Monroe.
