Deadlines spur action so if there is a team out there with genuine interest in Jackson perhaps they would be willing to increase an offer to get a deal done as today's 3 p.m. deadline gets even closer.
Jackson is signed for three more seasons at an average salary of $16 million, per Spotrac, which could make him hard to move. His -1.0 nERD ranks outside of the top-300 players in the National Basketball Association. Detroit felt good about how the team performed after picking up the point guard from Oklahoma City at the deadline two years ago, but he got injured in the offseason and missed a substantial chunk of time at the beginning of 2016-17.
Someone apparently didn't understand that rule when negotiating with Stan Van Gundy and the Detroit Pistons.
"As I've said before, every name on our roster has come up". "There hasn't been a serious discussion about Andre, but that doesn't mean there haven't been discussions about Andre". "I can't control what happens with trade rumors".
According to Chris Mannix of The Vertical, Detroit is actively shopping Jackson and hoping to land a first-round pick, young player and expiring contract in exchange for him. An athlete of the first order, Drummond's offense is limited and his foul shooting has been horrid his entire five-year career.
Despite the Pistons' well-chronicled struggles and team tension since Jackson's return from a 21-game injury absence to start the season, Detroit won six of nine games to move into the East's eighth and final playoff berth entering the All-Star break.
