Drummond is one of the top-notch board beasts in the league.

Standing at 6-foot-11 and carrying 279 pounds, the Pistons big man is arguably the most dominant entity in the paint across the league. His skillful rebounding led him to pull down 1,247 rebounds (16.0 per game) to lead the league in 2017-18, followed by 1,232 (15.6 average) this past season.

Drummond - a University of Connecticut alum - has often used his physicality (powered by imposing length and weight) over time on both ends of the court making him a force to be reckoned with in almost all aspects of the game.

For the 2018-19 regular season, he averaged a commanding double-double of 17.3 points (career-high) and 15.6 rebounds per game.

According to recent reports, Drummond has been working with Pistons starting point guard Reggie Jackson in Las Vegas, as Detroit look to take the next step with the elite front-court duo of Drummond and Blake Griffin.
