It is no secret that the Brooklyn Nets are appearing alongside Cleveland Cavaliers center Andre Drummond.
As a matter of fact, Drummond’s exit from Cleveland is reportedly imminent following the Nets acquisition of superstar Harlen.
Zach Harper of Etherick wrote on possible drought scenarios, “Drummond is the most intriguing player on this list outside of the later Derrick Rose.” “Some sources in the league mentioned after a hearty trade to Brooklyn that it was a matter of time before he found his way into a purchase and joined in to help with the interior. Drummond would later address this A tough player to figure out how he wants to fit in. He’s clearly better than the Kendrick Perkins option [Oklahoma City] Thunder once was, but Drummond requires you to waste property in a game throwing him to the post. If you can catch Drummond to run the floor, grab the tackle, set the screen, get the hell out of the ball and defend, he is a great option for someone like the Nets . “
Drummond, 27, has one of the best campaigns of his career.
The two-time All-Star has amassed a career-high 18.7 points on top of 14.6 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 1.4 blocks and 1.4 steals this season. He has started in 16 matches for the Cavs.
The Cavaliers were one of the teams involved in the Harden deal. He snatched rising star center Jarrett Allen from the Nets.
As a result of the mega trade, the Nets lack significant depth. They have especially ended up in the position of big man. A player with Drummond’s size and experience can be extremely helpful later down the line.
However, the Cavs will try to maximize the value of the center. The Cavs are the No. 7 seed in the Eastern Conference.
