Will the Dallas Mavericks sign Andre Drummond if he is bought out?

The Mavs should be interested if Drummond gets bought out. Having a two-time All-Star on a minimum contract can be a massive boost to any team. Expect every contender to be interested in signing Drummond if he hits the open market. Will Dallas win the race to ink him to a deal?

The Brooklyn Nets are searching for a center and figure to be the leader in the clubhouse for Drummond if he becomes available. It would give the Nets a fourth All-Star and some depth behind former Mav DeAndre Jordan at the five.

Do not be surprised to see the Lakers and Clippers get in on the bidding as well. Both teams know depth can be important in the playoffs. Drummond gives any team a rebounding boost and the ability to dominate the paint.

Odds the Dallas Mavericks sign Andre Drummond if he is bought out: 5 percent

Drummond will have plenty of suitors, so Dallas will need to make a push up the standings to have any chance of signing the former All-Star. The Mavericks are unlikely to be offering the most playing time, so they will need to make the deal based on their ability to win.
