Chicago center Andre Drummond has exercised his $3.36M option to return to the Chicago Bulls next season, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski on Thursday.
The two-time All-Star averaged 6.0 points, 6.6 rebounds and 12.7 minutes in 67 games off the Chicago bench last season.
Drummond, 29, owns career averages of 13.2 points and 12.7 rebounds in 785 games (630 starts) with the Detroit Pistons, Cleveland Cavaliers, Los Angeles Lakers, Philadelphia 76ers, Brooklyn Nets and Bulls.
Detroit drafted him with the ninth overall pick in 2012 and he led the league in rebounding four times over a five-season span from 2015-20.
