Andre Drummond has decided to exercise his player option with the Cavs for the 2020-21 season.
Drummond is slated to make roughly $28.7 million this upcoming season, and it's tough to say he'd be able to earn that sort of payday on the open market, so it's not surprising at all that he'll be opting into this deal. He'll be an unrestricted free agent next summer, so if he doesn't show a commitment to Cleveland, it's possible he could still be dealt at the deadline to a contending team. Drummond opting in likely means that re-signing Tristan Thompson won't be a priority for the Cavs. Nov 17 9:30 am (EST)
