CBS DETROIT – Between Andre Drummond, Greg Monroe and Josh Smith, the Detroit Pistons have had a rather crowded frontcourt so far this season, and it looks like that will continue since the trade deadline has passed and no movement by the Pistons has been reported.

According to Zach Lowe of ESPN’s Grantland.com, the Pistons talked to teams about Smith, who signed a four-year, $54 million deal with Detroit this year.

Smith is averaging 15.9 points, 7.0 rebounds and 3.5 assists this year with Detroit. He has shot 22.5 percent from beyond the arc and 55.5 percent from the free throw line.
