With each report, it seems likelier the Pistons will stand pat at the trade deadline. 

The latest is that Andre Drummond is unlikely to be dealt because of Detroit's unwillingness to lower its asking price. 

The same goes for Derrick Rose, as we learned last night, and fellow veteran Markieff Morris. 

The Pistons are said to be seeking a first-round pick in exchange for Drummond, and a lottery pick in exchange for Rose. Their demands for Morris aren't yet clear, but anything other than a second-round pick would be unrealistic. 

It's Time For Pistons To Sell, Once And For All

Drummond told reporters after Detroit's win Wednesday night that he's not sure where he'll end up Thursday -- but he's not fazed by the rumors. 

“Your guess is as good as mine,” he said. “I don’t know what’s going to happen. I’m going to go to sleep tonight and wake up and find out what happens."

Other names to watch include Luke Kennard, Langston Galloway and Reggie Jackson. 

The deadline comes at 3 p.m.
