Chris Fedor: There are two things that I keep hearing. One: Cavs are under no delusion of what they’re going to get back for Andre. That’s why they weren’t worried about losing leverage. Like it’s not like they go from getting a first-round pick a high first-round pick. And now because they’ve made this decision to sit him, his value goes to like to second rounders. His value is what it is.
For now, Dallas appears first interested in adding a center to help supplement Porzingis, sources said. The Mavericks have circled Andre Drummond as the Cleveland Cavaliers look to move in a different frontcourt direction of their own, but Dallas has expressed no interest in parting with Porzingis in those particular talks. “They want a big to pair with him,” one league source said. “Obviously with physicality, rebounding, toughness.”
Sam Smith: Drummond is a free agent this summer, but regarding the Bulls the most important element is it would take playing time from Wendell Carter, who has played well in his return and seems healthy again. New management still is about analysis and evaluation of their players. Drummond doesn’t have any history, anyway, of elevating average teams. He’s not worth the effort. I’m still predicting a quiet Bulls trade deadline.
Storyline: Andre Drummond Trade?
Drummond’s stout numbers have always seemed larger than the overall picture, but he’s averaging 17.5 points, 13.5 rebounds and 2.6 assists. He’s also been very durable across his nine-year career. According to sources, the Knicks are “sitting tight for now” regarding the center situation. They want to see the Noel-Taj Gibson center tandem play out as they fight for a playoff berth.
When asked about Toronto as a landing spot, all four league sources pointed to the difficulty of the mechanics of a Drummond-Toronto trade. A two-team trade between Cleveland and Toronto is unlikely. Unless Toronto is willing to move Norman Powell in such a deal (which it shouldn’t be), it would require a five-for-one construction of Aron Baynes, Chris Boucher, Stanley Johnson, Patrick McCaw and DeAndre’ Bembry (Baynes, Boucher, Johnson, McCaw and a true minimum isn’t quite enough salary to meet trade requirements).
