Lakers Add Center Andre Drummond for Postseason Push
By admin - March 29, 2021

Andre Drummond is joining the Los Angeles Lakers, part of a planned playoff push by the defending champions. Here are the highlights:

  • The Lakers announced the signing of Drummond on Sunday.
  • Drummond agreed to a buyout from the Cleveland Cavaliers.
  • “We’re all thrilled. He’s one of the best centers in the league and someone every defensive coordinator is going to have to account for while trying to slow down LeBron, AD and our guards when we get going,” Lakers coach Frank Vogel said. “He can dominate on both sides and his physicality is something they have to account for.”
  • Vogel says it’s unclear if Drummond is available for the Lakers’ next game on Wednesday.
  • The Lakers currently rank ninth in the NBA in rebounds per game (45.1), but just 17th in offensive rebounds (9.6).
