A report suggests that Andre Drummond was frustrated with Maurice Cheeks after being benched in the third quarter of the defeat to the Dallas Mavericks.

Detroit Pistons coach Maurice Cheeks frustrated Andre Drummond by pulling him out of the game against the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday, according to a report.

Drummond was briefly removed from the action early in the third quarter due to his part in a turnover and the 20-year-old was frustrated with the decision from his coach, MLive.com reports.

"It was about his play, just about his play," Cheeks told reporters after the 116-106 loss. "He went right back in.

"It's a learning experience to do what we're trying to do out of a timeout and I don't think he did it right. We took him out, we put him right back in."

Drummond has averaged 12.6 points per game this season.
