Cavaliers sitting Drummond while pursuing trade for center
CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cavaliers will sit center Andre Drummond while they try to trade the two-time All-Star center. Cavs coach J.B. Bickerstaff said the team came to the decision after meeting with Drummond and his representatives. The Cavs want to give 22-year-old center Jarrett Allen more playing time. Drummond is in the final year of his contract and not part of the team’s future because he’ll be too expensive to re-sign as a free agent. The Cavs have lost seven straight games and 11 of 13. Drummond was acquired by the Cavs in a trade with Detroit last year.
