Recently-acquired big man Andre Drummond has been pretty good thus far in his first few games for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Hopefully, he can get more comfortable with his new club and surpass the three post-All-Star break goals I have for him.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are elated that they acquired center Andre Drummond from the Detroit Pistons for barely anything near the 2020 NBA trade deadline. Drummond is a two-time All-Star and three-time league rebounding leader in seven career seasons to this point.

At this juncture in the 2019-20 season, Drummond has continued to prove his worth as one of the NBA’s best 5’s. On the year, he’s posted a career-high 17.7 points per game, as noted by Basketball Reference.

Along with that, in typical fashion, Drummond is again leading the Association with 15.8 rebounds per game, according to NBA.com. If he keeps up his current pace, the 26-year-old will capture his fourth rebounding title in what will be eight career seasons.

Though the game itself was one the Cavs want to forget with it being the worst home loss in franchise history in a 133-92 beat-down by the LA Clippers on Sunday, of which our own Corey Casey went into further detail about, Drummond did fairly well in his Cleveland debut.

The big man had 19 points, 14 rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block, as shown by ESPN.

Drummond would then follow that up with a quality performance against the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday in what was a Wine and Gold winner; RIP, Fred McLeod. Drummond had 14 points, 15 rebounds and two blocks (though unfortunately he did have five turnovers), according to ESPN.

That came in handy with Kevin Love missing the game due to reported right Achilles soreness, too.

Okay, so looking at the next two months, a few goals for Drummond seem clear to me, and we’ll begin with the first post-All-Star break goal for the newer Cavs big.
