Two-time All-Star Andre Drummond has agreed to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers.
Drummond has been inactive as the Cleveland Cavaliers have been working to trade or agree to a buyout with Drummond. The Lakers are still without Anthony Davis and LeBron James for the foreseeable future.
Drummond brings more depth and a rebounding machine. Drummond has not averaged less than 11.1 RPG since his rookie season.
The Lakers have won two straight games without Davis and James. This team needs to hang on a couple more weeks until Davis and James are healthy to return.
Drummond can help the Lakers win games right now. The Lakers have 25 games left in the regular season. Playoff Seeding will become very important soon.
Andre Drummond gets a chance to display his talent on a championship team after his seasons with the Detroit Pistons ended with 2 playoff appearances and no playoff wins.
Drummond will eventually get to play with LeBron James and Anthony Davis. James and Davis will make Drummond’s game much easier.
LeBron James and Anthony Davis need to get healthy very soon. Davis is still a week or two away before he can return to the court. James is still another 3 weeks away before he will return.
Andre Drummond can help relieve minutes for Davis and James as they return from injury.
There is no doubt that with a fully healthy roster, the Lakers are the team to beat in the playoffs.
Drummond is a great addition that will help the Lakers repeat as champions.
