Andre Drummond opened up about his player option for the 2020/21 season and whether he will exercise it.

The big man of the Cleveland Cavaliers revealed he has not made a decision yet, but he will make one soon.

“As of right now, I’m just focusing on what I can worry about. Working on my game. Right now, just worrying about what’s happening with the next couple of months, before the season, whenever it’s time to start, and when that time does come to make that decision everybody will know. Right now, I’m a Cleveland Cavalier. In terms of extending, we will find that out when the time comes around.

I still haven’t thought much about what’s going to go on with free agency. I’m in close communication with my agent, so we will start to have those conversations relatively soon.

I’m just letting things play out the way they’re supposed to play out and when that time comes, when we need to make a decision, I will have my answer ready,” Drummond told Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com.

Drummond finished the 2019/20 season, averaging 17.7 points and 15.2 rebounds in 57 games with the Detroit Pistons and the Cavaliers.

Drummond has a player option for the 2020/21 season, worth $28,751,775.
