Cavaliers seeking trade For drummond
Andre Drummond’s brief tenure with the Cleveland Cavaliers apparently is over. ESPN reported Monday the Cavaliers plan to sit Drummond as they seek to trade him before the March 25 deadline. Drummond, a two-time NBA All-star, did not play Sunday when the Cavaliers dropped their seventh straight game, this one to the Clippers. He sat on the bench at Staples Center in Los Angeles wearing a sweatshirt with the word “farewell” on the front. ESPN said GM Koby Altman had agreed with Drummond and his agent that the veteran will remain inactive. Cleveland instead intends to start 22-year-old Jarrett Allen, received in a trade from the Brooklyn Nets last month, at centre. The Cavaliers acquired Drummond, now 27, in February 2020 from Detroit. He will become a free agent after this season. In 25 games this season, Drummond has averaged 17.5 points and 13.5 rebounds. He has led the NBA in rebounding four times. In 624 career games (573 starts), Drummond is averaging 14.6 points and 13.8 rebounds per game.
