Drummond is valuable specifically for the big center matchups where Marc picks up two early chippy fouls and then you’re left with a tough choice of putting AD on Jokic/Embiid/etc. or going small. That does have value. But it’s very limited value plus your points for flavor.
Drummond as a buyout vet min guy is something you just go for even if its purely a reg season body while keeping him from other teams. But you cant go after him thinking hes gonna be some late game closer lmao. Thats AD at the 5 time https://t.co/4Pm21s8wMZ
Guys, Dwight and JaVale averaged 25 minutes a game together this past postseason and a decent amount of that was garbage time in blowouts. Past specific matchups, you just aren’t going to play true fives much in the playoffs with AD. Doesn’t mean don’t get Drummond but still.
