2. Andre Drummond

Andre Drummond is an absolute monster on the glass. He'd be a great addition to any contending team that needs help in that department.

Sure, he's a non-factor on offense and he's even worse as a rim protector. We get that.

But he's a selfless player, who is willing to come off the bench and play his role, regardless of how much (or how little) playing time he gets. To add color to that, Drummond has played fewer than 18 minutes per contest in each of the last two seasons, and we haven't heard a peep about him wanting more playing time.

Even on the non-contending Bulls.

Drummond is incredibly athletic and has channeled it on the glass, where he's averaged 18.6 rebounds per 36 minutes this season and 18.8 boards per 36 minutes last season. 

On the offensive glass, he's averaged a career best 7.1 offensive boards per 36 minutes this season.

He's also grown adept at nabbing steals, due in part to his quick hands, as he averages a steal per game in 2023-24. 

Drummond will be an unrestricted free agent this summer and could help spell minutes for Alperen Sengun, while being a rebound-eater.
