The Chicago Bulls should consider signing Andre Drummond

When the Cleveland Cavaliers released Andre Drummond this past season, many Bulls fans were adamant that the team should sign him. Instead, the Bulls made the move to bring in Vucevic.

Now that the Lakers are done and Drummond heads to free agency, one has to wonder where his future lies. In Cleveland, Drummond was a force. Yet, when it counted in L.A., he disappeared.

The big man is still only 27 years old, but should he be relegated to a bench role from here on out? It he’d accept a prominent bench role, Drummond could be a big addition for the Bulls. However, they could also choose to start him next to Vucevic and play Patrick Williams at the three.

Regardless, Drummond is an interesting possibility. The opportunity to rejoin the Lakers could still be there, but he’ll likely have to accept a smaller deal if Los Angeles wants to gear up for another run next season. And again, at his young age, he could still play himself into a large contract. That could happen if he signed with the Lakers once more.

The thought of a front court including both Drummond and Vucevic could be a scary one, especially if Drummond seemed interested in playing defense. He was non-existent in the playoff series for Los Angeles, which is a mystery to many Lakers fans. But, if he returned to his defensive form, he could be a fun signing for the Bulls.
