Once Andre Drummond clears waivers at 5 PM ET, he intends to sign with the Lakers, his agent Jeff Schwartz of @excelbasketball tells ESPN.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) March 28, 2021
Prior to exiting the Cavs lineup in advance of the trade deadline, Drummond was averaging 17.5 points and 13.5 rebounds per game. Now with the Lakers, the former Pistons star will bolster coach Frank Vogel’s frontcourt rotation as the team prepares its title defense.
Elsewhere, the Bucks have emerged as frontrunners to land recently-waived guard Austin Rivers. The Athletic’s Shams Charania delivered the news shortly after the Thunder parted ways with Rivers.
The Trail Blazers currently have two open roster spots following Thursday’s deadline-deal for Norman Powell.
