7. Andre Drummond

When it comes to high-level rebounders in the NBA, few do it better than Andre Drummond. The big man has continued to stay true to his reputation as a hard-nosed interior threat on the boards. He is not an All-Star caliber player, but he has proven himself extremely viable in the role he plays best.

When he joined the Bulls during the 2022 offseason, Drummond was seen as a supporting role player that could be consistent and help lift up the core group of stars in DeMar, Zach, and Lonzo after he returned from his injury. He did just that, and has continued to impress in the way that he has reinvented his game to be more useful in a modern setting.

But with the Bulls' core group experiencing continued injury trouble during Andre's two seasons in Chicago, he was never able to live out his purpose for this team to the fullest extent. Drummond has just finished up the second year of his two-year deal with the Bulls, and he will be an unrestricted free agent this summer.

With the future of this team up in the air and the possibility that the Bulls pursue a full rebuild increasing, it is very likely Drummond ends up on a different NBA roster next season.
