2. 76ers Sign Andre Drummond
Drummond might be a double-double machine, but his stint with the Lakers last year showed that some of his production might lean towards the fugazi end of the spectrum. Even though the 76ers saw the fact Drummond was played off of the court by the Suns in the postseason, they made him their new backup center.
With Howard back in forum blue and gold, Drummond decided to sign a one-year contract with Philadelphia.
Not only does a Sixers team in need of shooting get even LESS offensive versatility and creativity, but they might run the risk of upsetting Joel Embiid.
The 76ers could regret signing Andre Drummond. Nets win again!
Embiid and Drummond have a famously frosty relationship, and adding those two into a Philly locker room that is already bursting at the seams with emotion considering their early playoff exit could cause some internal strife.
The Nets clearly need to view Philadelphia as their top opponent for the division crown. However, with Simmons’ offensive struggles still something that Philly has to deal with, a lack of shooting that wasn’t aided by the Drummond signing, and a substandard bench, Brooklyn should feel pretty good about how they match up with them.
