Andre Drummond to Rejoin 76ers on Two-Year, $10 Million Deal

Andre Drummond is set to sign a two-year, $10 million contract with the Philadelphia 76ers, according to multiple sources, including ESPN and The Athletic.

Drummond returns to Philadelphia after spending the past two seasons with the Chicago Bulls, where he averaged 8.4 points and 9.0 rebounds per game last season. He previously played for the 76ers during the 2021-22 season before being traded to the Brooklyn Nets as part of the deal that brought James Harden to Philadelphia.

Drummond will serve as a key backup to Joel Embiid, providing much-needed depth at the center position. His return comes as the 76ers aim to bolster their roster around Embiid and rising star Tyrese Maxey, who is expected to receive a new contract this summer.

The 76ers are also looking to make further moves in free agency, including meeting with LA Clippers forward Paul George. Additionally, they recently added UCLA center Adem Bona in the NBA draft to strengthen their frontcourt.

Drummond’s signing will be official on July 6, when NBA teams can formally complete deals with free agents.
