Allen Robinson, the next Adrian Wojnarowski?
The veteran NFL wide receiver, who last played for the Bears and is currently a free agent, decided to don his reporter hat on Tuesday morning, but not to reveal his plans for the upcoming season. Robinson took to Twitter and said … Cavaliers center André Drummond will join the Nets?
NBA TRADE DEADLINE: Date, time, latest rumors, news, main targets
“According to the sources, Andre Drummond will sign with the Nets,” Robinson tweeted. “They get a little bit of reinforcement on the defensive side and the glass. Look for them to still be active around the trade deadline lol.”

Now, it came out of nowhere. We need to talk about a few things here:
– Robinson’s “report” ends with him saying “lol” so it might just be a joke. In this case, you have us.
– Drummond currently cannot sign with the Nets as he is still under contract with the Cavs. If Cleveland and Drummond agree to a buyout, he could become a free agent and sign a deal with Brooklyn. That hasn’t happened yet, however.
– The fair nets added a frontcourt piece to Blake Griffin after the six-time All-Star made a buyout deal with the Pistons. Brooklyn has been linked to Drummond before, but maybe the Griffin acquisition changes their approach to the buyout and trading markets this month.
– ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, who is not an NFL player but has been an NBA reporter for some time, recently said the Cavs are “to play hardball” and will not just give Drummond. Cleveland is hoping to land a draft pick and / or a young player in a Drummond trade, per Windhorst.
Hmmm. You might want to speak to another source, Allen.
