CBS Sports recently ranked the NBA's Top 100 players. To no surprise, Andre Drummond and Reggie Jackson were on the list ... but so was Stanley Johnson.

If they can't latch on with another NBA team and want to play in the D-League, their journey would begin in Grand Rapids. But what happens next is not necessarily up to the Pistons.

The Pistons could choose to call a player up mid-season, requiring a change to the 15-man roster to open up a spot. But another NBA team could come calling and snatch them away.

A player under D-League contract is not bound to their NBA affiliate franchise, meaning they can sign with another NBA team without penalty.

Q: NBA.com's new defense data showed the Pistons last season were among the worst teams in defending the paint, and Andre Drummond at best had average stats in defending the rim/paint when looking at field goal percentage. David Mayo noted last season that Drummond still lacked defensive instincts. Has Drummond been defending better this preseason? Better defense and/or more baskets/basket-and-1 opportunities (rather than 2 free throws) maybe will make his free throw percentage less important. -- Ishmael, via email.

NBA.com's new defense data showed the Pistons last season were among the worst teams in defending the paint, and Andre Drummond at best had average stats in defending the rim/paint when looking at field goal percentage. David Mayo noted last season that Drummond still lacked defensive instincts. Has Drummond been defending better this preseason? Better defense and/or more baskets/basket-and-1 opportunities (rather than 2 free throws) maybe will make his free throw percentage less important.

A: If there is an area the Pistons could stand to benefit most from Andre Drummond this season, his inept free-throw shooting aside, it's improved rim protection. His agile, 6-foot-11 frame are strong qualities for ashot blocker, yet Drummond averages an underwhelming 1.6 blocks per game.

Why is that? Part of the reason falls on the Pistons' reliance on Drummond around the basket. He is and always will be the team's chief rebounder, so asking him to block more shots may mean in a significant drop off in rebounding missed shots.

We saw Wednesday what happens to the Pistons when Drummond is out of the game for lengthy periods of time. Rebounding is a chore, and not one the rest of the roster necessarily prefers or excels at.

That's not a trade-off he nor Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy want to make on a nightly basis, especially with an often undersized power forward on the court. Drummond is your rebounder, he knows his role and you expect him to fulfill his role.

Detroit dropped its season opener to the Raptors, 109-91.

That said, there are instances in which Drummond could afford to contest shots in the paint if he chooses. That goes back to instincts, of knowing who is on the court with you and reading the other team's offensive sets. When you have an idea of what's coming, you can judge whether you need to stay on your feet or not.

Recently a neighborhood in Brooklyn made national headlines for a fight over public schools. Lots of affluent, mainly white families have been moving into new condos in the waterfront area called DUMBO, and the local elementary school is getting overcrowded.

The city wants to redraw the zones in a way that would send kids from this predominantly white school to a nearby school where enrollment is over 90 percent black and Hispanic and which draws many of its students from a public housing project. Some parents on both sides of the line balked.

"Liberal hypocrisy," was the headline in the conservative National Review.

The tacit assumptionwas that sending children to a majority-minority school would entail a sacrifice, one that pits their own children against their (presumably) progressive ideals.

But there's plenty of evidence that suggests the opposite: White students might actually benefit from a more diverse environment.

Here are three reasons why.

1. Their test scores won't be any lower.

looking at the black-white achievement gap. It found something remarkable: "White student achievement in schools with the highest Black student density did not differ from White student achievement in schools with the lowest density."

Translation: After controlling for socioeconomic status, white students essentially had the same test scores whether they went to a school that was overwhelmingly white or one that was overwhelmingly black.

This finding "confirms decades of research that white students' achievement is not harmed" by the color of their classmates' skin, says Genevieve Siegel-Hawley, an education professor at Virginia Commonwealth University, who researches race, stratification and inequality in American schools.

2. They may work harder and smarter.

Katherine Phillips is a professor at Columbia Business School who studies the benefits of diversity — a growing field. For example, there's evidence that corporations with better gender and racial representation make more money and are more innovative. And many higher education groups have collected large amounts of evidence on the educational benefits of diversity in support of affirmative action policies.

In one set of studies, Phillips gave small groups of three people a murder mystery to solve. Some of the groups were all white and others had a nonwhite member. The diverse groups were significantly more likely to find the right answer.

The contract the company to finishing the bridge by next fall.

He keeps delaying his decision because he doesn't want to .

They have not yet to a particular course of action.
