Report: Cavs and Andre Drummond Have Shown Mutual Interest in Contract Extension
- Updated: June 27, 2020
“At this point, sources say, both sides have shown interest in an extension,” Fedor wrote. “But there’s so much to figure out before late October, when Drummond could technically sign a new deal.”
Drummond, 26, announced earlier this week that he would be picking up his $28.7 million option to stay in Cleveland next season.
The novel coronavirus minimized Drummond’s sample size in Cleveland this year. Still, he showed the Cavs that he was worth the investment.
In a Cavs uniform, Drummond averaged 17.5 points, 11.1 boards and 1.5 steals per game this season. He produced on the floor, jelled with teammates quickly and served as good voice of encouragement to the squad’s youngsters.
The Cavs concluded the 2019-20 campaign with a 19-46 record.
