Andre Drummond built a reputation as one of the best rebounders in the NBA throughout his career. In eight years with the Pistons, Drummond averaged 14.4 rebounds per game — including 16.0 rebounds in 2017-18. He has led the league in rebounding four times and continues to be one...
Brooklyn Nets Have 7 Free Agents In The Off-Season, Including Goran Dragic, Blake Griffin, And Andre Drummond: The Nets Could Rebuild Their Entire Team
The Brooklyn Nets will have a lot of big decisions to make in the offseason. After an embarrassing first-round series against the Celtics, in which they got convincingly swept and outperformed by Boston, the Nets are no longer in the playoffs. The Nets will want to assemble a team around...
Drummond supplied one rebound in four minutes during Monday's 116-112 loss to Boston. Drummond hasn't been overly relied upon of late, but Monday was confirmation that he'd been fully usurped by Blake Griffin. Across 73 appearances with Philadelphia and Brooklyn, Drummond averaged 7.9 points per game this season. With Nicolas Claxton likely to be retained and Ben Simmons to be introduced, it's quite possible Drummond finds himself in a different uniform next season.
If you decided to take the week off from watching basketball while the Philadelphia 76ers are on a mini-hiatus, no one would blame you. The season is long, baseball just started, and things are about to get really intense for the lone team that calls the Wells Fargo Center home who actually earned a playoff berth.
The Nets may not have a front-line center, but Andre Drummond and Nic Claxton certainly performed like one Tuesday night if you combined their efforts. The two big men did a little bit of everything in the Nets’ 115-108, play-in tournament victory over the Cavaliers at Barclays Center. They finished at the rim. They scored at the paint. They defended well.
It was a little less than a month ago that Andre Drummond told reporters that the Nets were wise to not have traded Nic Claxton at the NBA trade deadline, and that certainly has proven to be true as Brooklyn gets set to face the Boston Celtics in the first round of the playoffs.
Drummond finished with 16 points (7-11 FG, 2-5 FT), eight rebounds and one steal across 19 minutes during Tuesday's 115-108 victory over Cleveland. Drummond played only 19 minutes compared to Nicolas Claxton's 29, but the former still managed to put up quality stats. It remains to be seen how coach Steve Nash will deploy the two centers against the Celtics, and their workloads could change on a game-to-game basis.
Drummond recorded 20 points (9-9 FG, 2-2 FT), 13 rebounds and two blocks in Sunday's 134-126 win over Indiana. Drummond eclipsed 20 points for the third time this season and picked up his third double-double in his last four games. The veteran big man is up to 12.3 points, 11.3 rebounds, 1.4 steals and 1.0 blocks in his last 10 contests.
NEW YORK -- As the Brooklyn Nets prepare for their final two regular-season games of the season, they do so in control of their own playoff destiny. If the Nets -- currently seeded eighth in the Eastern Conference with a 42-38 record -- win their final two games, they will lock up the seventh seed and would host the East's first play-in game next Tuesday night. Veteran center Andre Drummond left no doubt where his team's mindset is heading into Friday's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers -- the team that sits one slot ahead of the Nets.

Andre Drummond has been a valuable addition for the Nets since being acquired in the James Harden trade, but he understands the arrangement may be short term, writes Kristian Winfield of the New York Daily News. Drummond has taken over as Brooklyn’s starting center, averaging 12.2 points and 9.8 rebounds in 17 games. However, he’s playing on a veteran’s minimum contract that he signed with the Sixers and will be seeking a raise in free agency this summer.
