Cleveland Cavaliers big man Andre Drummond’s time with the Cavs has officially come to an end after he recently agreed to a purchase agreement with the team. The two-time All-Star said goodbye to Cleveland via social media at the prospect of joining the Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers.
Drummond only needed three words to express his gratitude through Twitter:
Thanks Cleveland 🦋🤍 pic.twitter.com/r5nvfFbQAD

Drummond separates from the Cavs after a year of being with the team. He came to Cleveland in February of last year after being traded by the Detroit Pistons. However, Drummond couldn’t find his groove with the Cavs, with the 6-foot-10 center playing a total of just 33 games for the team over the span of a year.
At this point, however, Drummond has emerged as one of the best prospects on the market. The New York Knicks, among other teams, have been linked to a raid by the prized great man, but as it turns out, the Celtics and Lakers have become the trailblazers for Drummond.
Despite a small drop in production over the past year, there are questions Drummond is still one of the best rebounders in the entire league. He is a four-time rebounding champion and his presence in the bottom zone would serve as a significant frontcourt upgrade for any team.
Reports have emerged that Lakers stars have been recruitment Drummond hard and that the team is offering him a starting position. In this sense, Drummond could now head to Hollywood to join LeBron James.
