7. Andre Drummond

Height: 6-10
Age: 28

It certainly seems like Andre Drummond doesn't plan to be in Brooklyn for long. The 10-year veteran played well through 24 games for the Nets, averaging 11.8 points and 10.3 rebounds per game. But in a strangely unfiltered moment before the regular season was even over, Drummond all but guaranteed he'll probably be moving on.

In his prime, Drummond was one of the most devastating interior presences of the 2010s, leading the league in rebounds per game in four of five seasons. The problem is he's well past that period of his life now.

Andre will be 29 by the time next season begins, and his defensive mobility has taken a major hit in recent years. Considering that's one of the biggest problems with San Antonio's frontcourt, this just wouldn't be a pursuit worth trying.
