Cleveland Cavaliers center Andre Drummond will reportedly “listen to pitches” from several teams, including the Los Angeles Lakers and the New York Knicks, after finalizing a contract purchase from the Cavs after Thursday’s NBA trading deadline.

Yahoo Sports’ Chris Haynes reported Friday that the Boston Celtics, Charlotte Hornets and Los Angeles Clippers are also expected to speak with the two-time All-Star.

Drummond hasn’t played since February 12 as the Cleveland front office decided to keep him out of the lineup as he explored potential exchanges. Nothing materialized before the deadline largely due to the massive $ 28.8 million success in the final season of his five-year, $ 127.2 million contract.
