Andre Drummond talks free agency plans, potential future with Bulls

The trade deadline has come and gone, and for the third straight season, the Chicago Bulls chose to do nothing. Rather than selling assets and planning for the future, Arturas Karnisovas committed to pushing for the postseason despite the fact that Chicago likely has no realistic chance of a deep playoff run.

The most confusing part of the decision is the fact that some of Chicago’s guys will be free agents this summer. DeMar DeRozan and Andre Drummond will have the option to leave in free agency this offseason, and the Bulls would get nothing back in return. They could have traded them both.

“I’m excited to see what happens in the offseason. Whatever team sees me as an asset, I’m ready. Obviously, I’m here now, and I love it here. I would love to be here still,” Drummond said. “That’s why my main focus is on finishing out the year strong and making some noise in the playoffs.”

The veteran big man has given the Bulls some valuable minutes this season.
