76ers agree to deals with Andre Drummond, Georges Niang: Sources
The Philadelphia 76ers agreed to deals with center Andre Drummond and forward Georges Niang on Tuesday, sources confirmed to The Athletic.
Drummond will go to Philadelphia on a one-year deal for the league minimum. Niang will sign a two-year deal worth $6.7 million.
Drummond, who turns 28 next Tuesday, joined the Los Angeles Lakers in March after being waived by the Cleveland Cavaliers. He averaged 11.9 points and 10.2 rebounds in 21 games to finish the regular season, and nine points and 11 rebounds in the Lakers' first-round playoff loss to the Suns.
A two-time All-Star with the Detroit Pistons, Drummond was named third-team All-NBA in 2015-16. He has led the league in rebounding four times.
Niang, 28, joins the Sixers after four seasons with the Utah Jazz. He appeared in all 72 games in the 2020-21 regular season, averaging 6.9 points and shooting 42.5 percent from 3-point range.
