Andre Drummond is 'likely' to pick up his $28.7 million player option for next season, league sources told Chris Fedor of cleveland.com
Fedor adds that the Cavs, who acquired Drummond at the trade deadline, were not given any assurances from Drummond about his future before the trade.
Drummond fits with the Cavs plan having of a rim protector on defense and a lob threat on offense to help develop their young players.
Drummond averaged 17.5 points, 11.1 rebounds and 1.4 blocks with the Cavs.
The Cavs could go over the cap in re-signing Tristan Thompson due to having his Bird rights. The team also has its mid-level exception to strengthen next season's roster.
