NBA sources say that Andre Drummond has agreed to a two-year, $6.6 million deal with the Chicago Bulls!
Sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski on Thursday that free-agent center Andre Drummond has agreed to a two-year, $6.6 million deal with the Chicago Bulls. The player can choose to play the second year.
The 28-year-old big man did well in the second half for the Brooklyn Nets after being traded right before the trade deadline. He was sent to the Philadelphia 76ers as part of the deal that sent James Harden there.
In 24 regular-season games with the Nets, Drummond averaged 11.8 points and 10.3 rebounds. His teammates and coaches liked how hard he played down low.
Drummond’s easy-going personality made him a reliable player for the Nets on the court and a well-liked person away from it. Even though Brooklyn had players like young big man Nic Claxton and veteran LaMarcus Aldridge who could play center, Nets coach Steve Nash usually gave more minutes to Drummond down the stretch last season.
