The Lakers have made signing Drummond their priority after a fruitless trade deadline, but the competition is fierce and Boston can also offer the sort of role Drummond seeks.@ChrisBHaynes reported that Drummond will also field pitches from the Knicks, Clippers and Hornets.

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.
