Andre Drummond to exercise $28.7M option, stay with Cleveland Cavaliers


CLEVELAND — Center Andre Drummond has told the Cleveland Cavaliers he will exercise his $28.7 million contract option and stay with them this season.

Drummond, 27, was acquired by Cleveland in a surprising trade from the Detroit Pistons in February. He had been expected for months to pick up the option.

A two-time All-Star with Detroit, Drummond has consistently said he enjoys playing with the young Cavs. But now that he’s under contract for 2021, he could be packaged by the team in a trade because he has an expiring deal.

Drummond averaged 17.5 points and 11.1 rebounds in eight games with the Cavs, who were one of the eight teams excluded from the Orlando bubble. For his career, Drummond, the No. 9 overall pick in 2012, has averaged 14.5 points and 13.8 rebounds.
