Andre Drummond is widely considered to be the best rebounder in the NBA. Andre Drummond has led the league four times in rebounding and is a player who can provide some scoring on top of his defensive value with his rebounding. Andre Drummond is widely considered a fairly good center.

However, there have been questions about Drummond's overall impact on the game. Doug Smith, a Toronto Raptors reporter, has relayed an NBA scout's words about Andre Drummond. The scout seems to categorize Drummond as a player who can get big stats but not actually impact winning games.

Andre Drummond has been on l0sing teams for a lot of his career while putting up monster rebounding stats. He's been to the playoffs but hasn't gotten deep into the postseason. While Drummond may not be a number one option who can carry a team to the playoffs, it seems unfair to say that Drummond's stat lines have no impact on the game. Andre Drummond would be perfect in a role where his job is to focus on doing a lot of defensive work while being a supporting player on the offensive end.

Andre Drummond may not have won anything yet, but he's an elite rebounder and a solid defender. Hopefully, he can get traded to a team where he can show his worth, and possibly go far into the playoffs.
