The Atlanta Hawks were close to trading for Andre Drummond with an offer of Chandler Parsons and a 2020 first round pick from the Brooklyn Nets to the Detroit Pistons.

The Hawks, however, were unwilling to ultimately add the pick because Drummond's contract extension demands were too high for them.

Drummond is on a $27 million contract this season and is scheduled to earn $28.7 million next season if he were to opt in. 

While the center position has been devalued in recent seasons, Drummond could be one of the more attractive players in a limited free agent market in 2020.
