Reports today indicate that NBA's Cleveland Cavaliers are seeking to trade Andre Drummond before the March 25 Deadline.
Andre Drummond might have been one of the highly-rated NBA stars, who played for the Detroit Pistons in the past no longer looks like the same player anymore. In fact, he looks to be a liability in recent times as Cleveland Cavaliers no longer seem interested to have him start or even sit on the bench.
In the past, Andre Drummond achieved a great number of accolades, such as being a two-time NBA All-Star. Not many realize, but the 27-year-old also led the charts for being the rebounding leader four times in 2016 and then from 2018 to 2020. As a young boy, he impressed all the scouts while playing for Uconn, which helped him become a round one signing in the 2012 NBA Draft.

Andre Drummond signed for Cleveland Cavaliers in 2020 in an exchange deal for the likes of Brandon Knight and John Henson,who headed to Detroit Pistons. However, just within a year, making just eight appearances for the side, the NBA franchise looks like they are no longer interested in paying a big chunk of wealth to the New York-born athlete who plays at the center position.
In recent times, the Cavaliers player has been more of a liability for the side, whose services can be offered by other squad members instead of with much more grace. As per online reports, an anonymous yet renowned scout said how Andre Drummond could play around 20-30 minutes but not offer anything and impact the match in any way possible.

Cleveland Cavaliers recently signed a brand new blooming star, Jarrett Allen, which further strengthened their case to offload Andre Drummond. His recent statistics show the former Pistons star scoring 17.5 points and 13.5 rebounds per game.
Reports from The Athletic do suggest that another NBA side, Toronto Raptors are keen to get Andre Drummond's services in their side. Well, they would hope to land him on a lesser fee and a lower salary as well, which might be justifiable considering his slump of form.
