Could Andre Drummond be on this move this offseason?
As teams prepare their list of offseason needs, an upgrade at center should be a high priority for a lot of them. Drummond has a player option for 2020-21, and he’s been clear in the past that he will exercise the option, worth around $28 million.
The Cavaliers could look to move Drummond if he ultimately opts-in to what would be the final year of his contract.
Evan Dammarell of Forbes recently wrote that “If things don’t get better it becomes even easier to flip Drummond and his mammoth expiring contract to another team to recoup assets to assist in their rebuild.”
He then laid out which teams would come calling for Drummond’s services.
“Teams like the Boston Celtics, the San Antonio Spurs and the Los Angeles Clippers all make sense as trade destinations for Drummond and according to sources, the Celtics are monitoring the situation.”
The Cleveland Cavaliers pulled off a last-minute trade at the deadline back in February that landed them All-Star center Andre Drummond from the Detroit Pistons for John Henson, Brandon Knight and a future second-round pick.
While Drummond is still just 26 years old, he’s been in the league for nine seasons, and he’s only seen the postseason twice.
He averaged a career-high 17.7 points between Detroit and Cleveland this season, while bringing down 11 rebounds and almost two steals a game.
