Detroit Pistons

Whoever replaces Joe Dumars as the Detroit Pistons president of basketball operations will need to answer a lot of questions. Among them is deciding whether 20-year-old center Andre Drummond (13 points, 13 rebounds per game this season) should be signed to a max-out contract and if the Pistons should continue to build around Josh Smith and Brandon Jennings or look to deal both and rebuild? At 20, Drummond extending his contract with the Pistons would be a start. (Photo: Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images)
