The Cleveland Cavaliers star big man Andre Drummond has been wanting to go to the Los Angeles Lakers once his buyout with the Cavaliers will be completed:

“But he knew his playing time (and stats) would be diminished with [Jarrett] Allen now the center of attention,” The Plain Dealer’s Terry Pluto wrote. “I heard Drummond has been working out in Los Angeles, wanting to go to the Lakers.”

The 27-year-old is averaging 17.5 points, 13.5 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.2 blocks and 1.6 steals through 25 games for Cleveland this season.
