The Cleveland Cavaliers have the worst record in the Eastern Conference, but new center Andre Drummond believes the Cavs have a bright future ahead of them.
Drummond spoke to Cavs reporters on Saturday after his first practice with the team and sounded really optimistic about the Cavs’ future odds:
Incredible optimism from Andre Drummond on #Cavs despite record: "It doesn’t faze me because I see a bright future here in Cleveland. The young guys here are really, really good. Just with the addition of myself and Kevin (Love) being healthy, we can do special things here."

Drummond is averaging 17.8 points, 15.8 rebounds and 2.8 assists this season. He’s shooting 53.0 percent from the field and 58.4 percent from the free-throw line.
Drummond can become an unrestricted free agent after this season ends if he declines his 2020-21 player option worth $28.8 million. The Cavs will use the rest of this season to determine if Drummond is a good fit next to guards Collin Sexton and Darius Garland.
For his career, Drummond is averaging up 14.4 points and 15.8 rebounds per game. The Cavs are 13-29 on the season. They won’t make the playoffs this season, but the franchise is eager to see how Drummond meshes with the young guys on the team and veterans Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson.
