Whenever the trade deadline comes around, it always feel like Andre Drummond is linked to the New York Knicks. However, taking on the 26-year old UConn product doesn’t make sense.
Drummon will be a free agent this summer. But he has a player option for next season at 28 million dollars, who wouldn’t pick up that option. If not, Drummond would then become an unrestricted free-agent at the beginning of the 2021-22 season.
For the Knicks, to trade for Drummond would be taking a few steps back in their process for the future.
