Andre Drummond will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason but it doesn’t sound like the big man has any plans to leave the Los Angeles Lakers.
Drummond averaged 11.9 points and 10.2 rebounds after joining the Lakers in March following a buyout agreement with the Cleveland Cavaliers. He started all but one game he played with the Lakers — a coach’s decision DNP in the decisive Game 6 of LA’s first-round playoff series against Phoenix.
Drummond, 27, is a two-time All-Star and four-time NBA rebounds leader. He can also be a valuable paint presence, something the Lakers were missing for most of the year after the departure of both Dwight Howard and JaVale McGee.
The Lakers have been open about wanting Drummond to be a part of the future in Los Angeles and he seems to be on the same page.
