Detroit's young untouchables
08:10 AM ET 01.01 | Thanks to Greg Monroe and Andre Drummond, times have changed since the Pistons coveted DeMarcus Cousins, even if a weekend report suggested Detroit might have interest in the Kings' center. [Let's] just entertain the thought the Pistons MIGHT be interested in Cousins. The Kings would be laughed out of the league if they agreed to any deal that didn't include Monroe or [Drummond]. And let's get this out of the way -- the Pistons aren't the least bit interested in dealing away Monroe or Drummond. Drummond is untouchable and Monroe is at the level just below. A source e-mailed me with this Sunday night: "We have two, young big men -- they're 'Pistons.'" ... [While] Cousins is coming off his third suspension of the season, Monroe has been a model citizen.
