Andre Drummond is Lakers' 'priority' in buyout market?
Could Andre Drummond end up with the Lakers? David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Lakers are facing stiff competition for their top target on the buyout market.

The Lakers have made center Andre Drummond their “priority,” according to Marc Stein of the New York Times. However, Drummond is expected to attract wide interest, particularly from the Boston Celtics.

Drummond won’t be short of options. The Knicks are also a threat, as they have a clear advantage on one front. The Lakers are Drummond’s best shot at a title, but the Celtics might offer the right mix of playing time and contention.

The Lakers are still expected to be without LeBron James and Anthony Davis for several more weeks. Even when both are healthy, they could use the frontcourt depth Drummond would provide. They just have to convince him that they’re the right fit.
