The Cleveland Cavaliers currently face the need to find a trade suitor for Andre Drummond. The two-time NBA All-Star is going to be benched until a deal is complete as the team wants to favor playing other personnel instead of him.
Drummond recently has given the Cavaliers problems with poor attitude and head coach J.B. Bickerstaff had to sit down with him numerous times to get him back on track. Now, it appears Cleveland no longer wants to deal with that as they have a long-term answer at center in Jarrett Allen.
Since Drummond is no longer a productive member of the team, it’s better to sit him and work out a trade than to let him pad his stats on the court.
One potential trade suitor that has been often mentioned for Drummond is the New York Knicks. They have more salary cap flexibility than most teams around the NBA and currently are in the midst of a playoff push.
If Andre Drummond is viewed as that missing piece, it makes sense to get something done. There is room to debate whether that is the case and will be the focus later on, but it’s clear the Knicks do have the potential to field an intriguing trade package for the Cavaliers.
With that being said, let’s take a look at a trade proposal by Bleacher Report’s Greg Schwartz that would send Andre Drummond to the New York Knicks before the NBA trade deadline.
