Andre Drummond was born August 10, 1993.

After being the nation's best high school player by ESPN, Drummond averaged 10 points, 7.6 rebounds and 2.7 blocks in 28.4 minutes per game during his one season at UConn in 2011-12.

Selected tenth overall by the Detroit Pistons, Drummond averaged 7.9 points, 7.6 rebounds and 1.6 blocks as a rookie. He quickly earned a reputation as one of the league's great defensive big men, earning him a spot on the All-Rookie Second Team.

He improved the following season to 13.5 points, 13.2 rebounds, 1.6 blocks and 1.2 steals per game.

Drummond continued his upward trend in 2014-15, posting career highs in points, rebounds and blocks, with 13.8, 13.5 and 1.9. Despite his improvements in many areas, Drummond was unable to raise his abysmal free-throw shooting percentage, which rests at 39.7 for his career.

After the departure of Greg Monroe to Milwaukee this offseason, Drummond will have his greatest opportunity to prove what he can really do on the court this season.
