The NBA Trade Deadline has passed and now the buyout market is heating up as teams attempt to put the finishing touches on their rosters. Andre Drummond and LaMarcus Aldridge have emerged as two marquee players to watch on the upcoming buyout market.

Following Thursday’s flurry of action, Yahoo Sports NBA Insider Chris Haynes highlighted the suitors that are surfacing for both Drummond and Aldridge. According to Haynes, Drummond will field pitches from five teams.

Prior to exiting the Cavaliers’ rotation in the lead up to the deadline, Drummond was averaging 17.5 points and 13.5 rebounds per game. The 27-year-old center was last selected to an All-Star Game in the 2017-18 season.

For Aldridge, the former Trail Blazers star will meet with a similar group of teams that are clearly looking to bolster their depth in the frontcourt.

In 21 games this season (18 starts), Aldridge recorded averages of 13.7 points and 4.5 rebounds per game.
