Draymond Green slams Cavaliers' decision to sit Andre Drummond

The Cleveland Cavaliers are planning to sit Andre Drummond as they work to trade him before the March 25 deadline, and Draymond Green sharply criticized that decision in a postgame rant.

Addressing reporters after a 129-98 win over the Cavaliers at Chase Center Monday night, Green cited James Harden, who was criticized for his exit from the Houston Rockets, while discussing the situation unfolding in Cleveland.

“To watch Andre Drummond before the game, sit on the sidelines, then go to the back and then come out in street clothes because the team is going to trade him is bulls–t,” Green said.

According to ESPN, the Cavaliers are not having any “serious ongoing discussions with any team.” Drummond’s future came into question last month when Cleveland traded for 22-year-old center Jarrett Allen.

If a trade cannot be reached by the deadline — which is more than a month away — a contract buyout could be Drummond’s only option if he wants to play again ahead of his free agency.

In December, Harden was also fined $50,000, though the listed reason was for a violation of the league’s COVID-19 protocol when he wasn’t available to start the season.
