Andre Drummond could be dealt to the Los Angeles Lakers in a three-way blockbuster deal involving the Detroit Pistons and the Philadelphia 76ers.

Pistons head coach and President of Basketball Operations Stan Van Gundy has given a slight hint that the team may consider dealing Drummond at the right price. Van Gundy insisted that while there has not been any serious talks about trading Drummond, he admitted there have possible moves for the 23-year-old center. Whether the Pistons head that path remains to be seen, but if the Pistons are offered an enticing package, it is something Detroit should consider.

CBS Philly explored a blockbuster trade scenario the Pistons could consider at the deadline. In the proposed deal, the Pistons send Drummond to the Lakers, while getting D'Angelo Russell, Nick Young and Tarik Black in return. The 76ers would then send Jahlil Okafor, a 2020 first-rounder and a second round pick to Detroit, while acquiring back Lakers' unprotected 2017 first-round draft pick and Jose Calderon.

For Pistons, the move would give them a chance to rebuild immediately with the acquisition of Okafor, Russell and a first-round draft pick. With the team in a race to earn a playoff spot, it is not possible Detroit completely forget about making a postseason run and instead prepare for the next season.

The Lakers, on the other hand, would get a talented center they have been longing for, potentially kick starting the franchise's attempts to get back to the title picture. Adding Drummond would give Los Angeles a crowded frontcourt, but it could help them attract top players in free agency, although it is uncertain whether Magic Johnson is willing to deal Russell away.

Meanwhile, the 76ers would get to address the frontcourt logjam of their own and get to clear more cap space by absorbing Calderon's expiring contract. Getting the Lakers' unprotected 2017 first-round pick means Philadelphia would have a guaranteed second lottery pick if LA unprotect their pick.

The Pistons are expected to keep hold off Drummond mainly because there are no enticing offers on the table yet. But if a stacked package like this comes in, the Pistons should consider parting ways with Drummond.
