Andre Drummond has averaged 13.3 rebounds against the #Bulls in his career (seems like more). His defensive skills don’t really match his rebounding, but we’ll see how it works in Chicago. Even with 10 years in the league, he turns 29 in August. – 11:02 PM
Rob Schaefer @rob_schaef
Drummond is fine as a backup center. Was productive in BKN at end of last season. Should be better than any of Bulls’ prior options
Rim protection and upside aren’t there like some of other linked names. But price keeps rest of MLE open to pursue shooting upgrade (Gallo?) – 10:52 PM
Jamal Collier @JamalCollier
Sources confirm the Bulls have an agreement with free agent center Andre Drummond. It’s a one year deal with a player option on the second year.
Bulls use a slice of their MLE, but will still look to fit another player – 10:49 PM
John Hollinger @johnhollinger
Bulls could have used biannual exception on Drummond but they wasted it on Tristan Thompson last March. Had to cut into their MLE instead. – 10:46 PM

Andre Drummond fun fact: Born in same town where Ben Gordon attended high school. (Mount Vernon, NY)
Also: A dominant memory of covering games at the Palace of Auburn Hills is Drummond dropping 20-20 games on the Bulls. – 10:23 PM

More on this storyline

Adrian Wojnarowski: Free agent center Andre Drummond has agreed to a two-year, $6.6M deal with the Chicago Bulls, sources tell ESPN. The second year is a player option. -via Twitter @wojespn / June 30, 2022
Brian Lewis: I’m told there is mutual interest between the #Nets and JaVale McGee. Can also confirm report by @Ian Begley that Brooklyn free agent center Andre Drummond is getting feelers from the #Knicks. #nyk #NBA -via Twitter @NYPost_Lewis / June 30, 2022
I’d expect the Knicks to waive Gibson and then give strong consideration to signing him to a new contract later in the offseason; though, as SNY reported, the club has several backup centers on its radar. Among them: Isaiah Hartenstein and Andre Drummond, per sources. Bleacher Report first noted Hartenstein on the Knicks’ radar. The Knicks will be aggressive in their pursuit of Hartenstein, per SNY sources. The Orlando Magic, as Marc Stein reported, is also a suitor for Hartenstein. Teams with interest in Drummond say the Knicks have a degree of interest in the center. -via SportsNet New York / June 30, 2022
