We should go after Drummond if we can get him reasonably 

Post#1 » by Useyourhead » Thu Jan 14, 2021 12:01 am

With the trade for Allen, Cleveland likely wants Allen to be their future C. Drummond on this team would make a world of improvement for the raps this year. Honestly we should have gone after him last year but raps management could not see Gasol was washed or they just did not want to trade/disrespect him. I believe if we had Drummond last year instead of Gasol, we could have gone to the finals as Gasol gave us nothing in that celtics series. Remember Detroit gave him up for basically nothing and Drummond's player option would only go to this summer and we would have still been in play for Giannis as we were intending at that time.

Regardless we now have the chance to maybe get him and unless we want to intentionally tank, we should try and get him. He would help us greatly with rebounding and the guy can pass too and while not an elite defender, he's better than what we currently have.

What do you guys think? Him and boucher could be a nice combo.

I'd try to get Nance. He's making about $11M. Maybe they'd swap him for Norm.

I'm good with developing Boucher (either to keep him or trade him for a pick this year). If you want Drummond, sign him in the summer if he's willing to accept a reasonable contract.

This

Howamy players will we lose trying to match that salary
Just wait til off season. We can easily pay him a Whiteside type deal, cuz that's all he's gonna get in today's NBA.

For the record, I like the kid. But that is anot q player you trade for unless it for another overpriced vet who is beyond washed up.

this isnt the offseason where 5for1 trades happen, rosters spots are an issue.

I think his value is so beat up that if you wait til free agency and you can get him for something like 10-15mil per year. In that case I wouldn’t mind it.

But don’t trade for him.

Thankfully, we are not in the offseason. Players that were cut can always be signed

People really don't understand how bad Drummond is. Gasol's value on the defensive end alone trumps anything that Drummond can give you. The dude gets like half of his rebounds by rebounding his own misses.

We would have went to the finals if we had Drummond instead of Gasol? I don't understand how Drummond would be able to defend the Celtics. That's a nightmare matchup for him.

He's just not that good especially as a starter. Maybe he can be a solid bench big in the future.

Why? Only right move is for us to tank. There is nothing we can do now to compete with the Nets, Bucks, and probably the Heat and Celtics. Only good move for us is to tank and try to compete maybe 2-3 seasons from now.

It could work in a 3-way with the Sixers. Along with the usual baggage, Sixers would send a couple of draft FRPs to Cleveland.

But why not take the draft picks for ourselves? Drummond (without Lowry) is not going to put us in the Finals, or even the ECF.
