Andre Drummond will pick up his $28.75 million player option with the Cleveland Cavaliers for the 20-21 season.

Drummond was acquired by the Cavaliers from the Detroit Pistons in a February trade.

"Yeah, it's going to be hard to give up, so you can count on me being in Cleveland still," Drummond said when pressed on whether he plans to exercise his option.

"I definitely will be in Cleveland."

The decision facing Drummond was expected to be difficult even before the COVID-19 pandemic led the NBA into a more austere 2020 offseason.
