Drummond, 27, hasn’t been suiting up for the Cavaliers recently, as they tried to find a trade partner for the big man. Now, he will be a free agent.
In his nine-year career, Drummond has made two All-Star games, both coming with the Detroit Pistons. He averages 14.6 points and 13.8 rebounds per game in his career.
With his contract expiring at the end of the year, the buyout benefits both parties, as the Cavaliers will give minutes to younger players and Drummond can sign with another team.
