Pistons' Drummond thinks Greg Monroe is coming home
LAS VEGAS — Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe had dates in Sin City this week.
Drummond is one of a group of players on the UNLV campus fighting for a roster spot on the U.S. team that will compete in the FIBA Basketball World Cup this month in Spain.
Monroe, the Detroit Pistons' union representative, was in attendance when the players' union elected a new executive director this week.
Drummond was there as well, so it really wasn't the time for a sales job. But it wasn't needed — at least not from Drummond.
The second-year center has been vocal about wanting Monroe, a restricted free agent, to return to the Pistons.
And Drummond said Thursday that he is pretty certain that Monroe's contract impasse will be resolved and Monroe will be wearing a Pistons uniform next season.
