Andre Drummond has opted into his $3.36 million contract for the 2023-24 season with the Chicago Bulls, according to Adrian Wojnarowski. There’s a possibility he could seek a trade in the summer after opting in given his desire to play for a contender, but otherwise he’ll be the backup big man for the Bulls behind Nikola Vucevic.
