Washington Wizards Receive: Andre Drummond

Cleveland Cavaliers Receive: Thomas Bryant, Robin Lopez, Ish Smith, Troy Brown

This deal would give the Washington Wizards a legitimate inside threat to provide balance alongside Bradley Beal and Russell Westbrook. They would be able to keep their stars together while adding some more pieces. Andre Drummond could come at a discounted price because of his contract situation.

The deal begins with big men like Robin Lopez and Thomas Bryant. They would be able to act as smaller replacements for Drummond. Ish Smith and Troy Brown would complete the deal.
