The Cleveland Cavaliers could consider trading Andre Drummond close to the trade deadline, according to Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com.

As Fedor reports, trading Drummond around the trade deadline would be the Cavs’ best option to build a beneficial deal.

“Don’t bank on this scenario playing out. At least, not immediately. Multiple sources believe the Cavs’ best chance to flip Drummond (provided he opts into his $28.7 million contract) would be around the trade deadline.

Head coach J.B. Bickerstaff told cleveland.com recently he is preparing as if Drummond will be part of the team in 2020-21. But in the scenario above, the Cavs would need to add a center for depth/insurance,” Fedor notes.

 Drummond has a player option for the 2020/21 season, worth $28.7M.
