The New York Knicks could be a landing spot for the veteran center.
Andre Drummond to the Knicks? That indeed could be a possibility as the Cleveland Cavaliers evaluate their potential trade partners. According to Marc Berman of the New York Post, the Knicks are keeping tabs on Drummond and evaluating whether or not he could be a fit for the team. Berman had the following to say about the Knicks as a possible landing spot for Drummond.
According to an NBA source who has been in touch with the Knicks, the club has made no decisions, but are “analyzing” whether making a play for on-the-block Cavaliers center Andre Drummond makes sense from a chemistry and winning standpoint. The Knicks are the NBA’s lowest-scoring team.Marc Berman on the Knicks possible interest in Drummond.
Berman would later add that New York could use some of their second round picks in addition to players on the outside looking in such as Austin Rivers or Frank Ntilikina to send the Cavaliers way.
Considering that the Cavs are not playing Andre Drummond again and they are better off trading him for something rather than buying him out, this wouldn’t be the worst idea. Adding one of the above mentioned players could give Cleveland a guard off the bench behind Collin Sexton and Darius Garland.
The Cavaliers just need to figure out which trade package they can get which best suits rebuilding efforts. Maybe it is what the Knicks offer or it could possibly be what a different team proposes in a separate trade.
