Double All-Star in the second half of the 2010s (2016, 2018), Andre Drummond has gradually seen its popularity rating drop in the league for two and a half years. Transferred by the Pistons in February 2020, he then defended the colors of four teams in the space of two seasons!
Free, after a last mixed freelance at the Nets, the former pivot of the Cavaliers, the Lakers and the Sixers is no longer this interior that franchises were likely to tear off a few years ago. It must be said that with his qualities as a rebounder and finisher near the circle (15.2 points and 14.5 rebounds on average between 2013 and 2020!), he had enough to seduce many leaders.
Except that at almost 29 years old, Andre Drummond seems on the downward slope, despite his ability to chain double-doubles with ease. Immobile in defense and unable to shoot from afar, he can nevertheless still render great service to a team lacking internal density off the bench.
A bet that the Bulls dared to take, for a contract of 6.6 million dollars over two years, while the Knicks and the Sixers were also among those interested in the quadruple best rebounder in the league (2016, 2018, 2019, 2020 ).
It remains to be seen what precise role Chicago intends to offer Andre Drummond, when Nikola Vucevic was the starting pivot for the Bulls in 2021/22.
