Andre Drummond is one of the big boys that the Lakers have acquired while they have struggled during the 2020-21 season. But as the season passed in vain, so did Drummond’s tenure in purple and gold. Before the 2021-22 season began, the 28-year-old gave an honest reason as to why he left LeBron James and the Lakers. Furthermore, the two-time All-Star was brutally honest as well.

To bring everyone to the same page, Drummond’s brief tenure in purple and gold was no exception. Having to pose a threat at the belt, he somehow couldn’t find his rhythm playing alongside other scorers. So when the opportunity arose, Drummond decided to sign a one-year contract with the Philadelphia 76ers, in which he could team up alongside Joel Embiid and Seth Curry.

“Times are changing and they have made different deals and different changes to their team to the point where I can no longer go back there,” Drummond said during his introductory press conference for the Sixers, via Sam Leweck by Lakers Daily. “I just took the next best thing after that, which was going to Philly. I think it’s a great fit for me. ”

Simply put, Andre Drummond knows that the overhaul the Lakers are currently undergoing leaves him outside looking in. He knows there’s no place for him in LA and it’s in everyone’s best interest for him to move on.

To think about it, the two-time All-Star actually has a better incentive to fill in during his time in Philadelphia. Had he stayed in Hollywood, it’s hard to imagine Drummond would have had enough time to play alongside Westbrook, LeBron and Davis. But all is well, the Sixers are currently 5th in the Eastern Conference Rankings, with a 1-game advantage over the defending champion Bucks. Can Drummond finally make a decent playoff? It is still seen as the 2021-22 period continuing.
