Sources: Andre Drummond to join 76ers on 2-year, $10M deal Khabritak

Andre Drummond is set to sign a two-year, $10 million deal with the Philadelphia 76ers, sources told ESPN, confirming multiple reports.

Philadelphia brings back Drummond, who spent the first half of the 2021-22 season with the 76ers before going to the Brooklyn Nets as part of the James Harden trade at that February's trade deadline.

Having spent the past two seasons playing behind Nikola Vucevic in Chicago, Drummond gives Philadelphia an elite backup option behind former MVP Joel Embiid, who missed a large chunk of last season with a knee injury.

The 76ers are set to meet with LA Clippers forward Paul George, the top free agent on the market, per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, as they look to fill out the roster around their star tandem of Embiid and guard Tyrese Maxey, who is expected to get a massive new contract this summer as well, as a restricted free agent.


Drummond, who turns 31 in August, found his niche as a solid backup center after starring with the Detroit Pistons to begin his career. He remains a prolific rebounder, averaging 9 in just over 17 minutes last season. In his 10 starts, he averaged nearly 18 rebounds.

Drummond is coming off a two-year, $6.6 million deal signed with the Bulls in 2024.
