The pvot reinforces the Los Angeles team in search of revalidating the ring. Be the starting five, displacing the Spanish
The ineffable Drummond, 27, one of the best rebounders of the last decade in the league and claimed by several franchises, goes to the reinforcement of one of the main applicants. He has not played since February 12, when he agreed with the Cavaliers to terminate his contract in search of a way out. From 2012 to 2019 he played for the Pistons. In almost 700 games in the NBA, he has averaged 13.8 rebounds – leading the NBA for four seasons in this section – and 14.6 points, he has been an All Star twice and world champion with the United States at the World Cup in Spain.
However, in modern basketball Drummond was never considered an NBA megastar, given his inconsistency, his lack of leadership, his weak defense and his inability to shoot from the perimeter. But to the Lakers it will come in handy like accompanist to LeBron James and Anthony Davis looking to revalidate his ring.
This movement will fully affect the role of Marc Gasol. Because the Angels’ intentions are to give Drummond the starting five position, displacing the Spaniard. As they have slipped, the Lakers they are not satisfied with Marc’s performance nor with Montrezl Harrell’s, another of the reinforcements of last summer.
The current champion is not going through his best moment. He has fallen to fourth place in the West, affected by the injuries of Anthony Davis and LeBron James. Marc himself returned just a few days ago, because after catching the coronavirus he was in the dry dock. Gasol has already played 37 games with the Lakers, all as a starter, in which he has averaged 4.8 points and four rebounds, the lowest figures in his entire career.
