Andre Drummond spent one part of his childhood in his hometown until 2000, when he moved with his mother and sister to Middletown, Connecticut. There, he attended Woodrow Wilson Middle School, after which he went to Capital Preparatory Magnet school in Hartford, Connecticut, where he started playing basketball for the school team, but two years later he transferred to St. Thomas More in Oakdale, Connecticut, where he continued to play basketball, leading them to the national prep championship, and becoming one of the best centers of his generation. Upon matriculation, he enrolled into the University of Connecticut, and started his college career as a part of its team. However, he spent there only a year in Uni, after which he decided to participate in the NBA Draft.
Andre’s professional playing career began immediately, when he was selected in the first round of the 2012 NBA Draft as the ninth overall pick by the Detroit Pistons, so he signed a rookie contract, which marked the beginning of his net worth. As a rookie, he averaged 7.9 points and 7.6 rebounds per game, which made him one of the best players in the team, so he was named to the 2012–13 NBA All-Rookie Second Team. Moreover, he participated at the 2014 NBA Rising Stars Challenge, when he achieved 30 points and 25 rebounds, so he was pronounced as the MVP of the event.
At the beginning of the 2015-2016 season, Andre succeeded in achieving double-doubles in the first three games consecutively, so was named the Eastern Conference Player of the Week. In November he reached 11 consecutive double-doubles, after which he became one of the players with at least 30 points and 20 rebounds per game, which increased his potential net worth by a large margin. Beside that, Andre played in the Slam Dunk Contest, after which was selected as a reserve for the 2016 NBA All-Star Game.
Then due to the expiration of his contract in 2016, he signed an extension worth $130 million over the next five years, which added a considerable amount to his net worth. During that year, he was named to the All-NBA Third Team and became the NBA rebounding leader. Most recently, he was chosen to appear at the 2018 NBA All-Star Game, so his net worth is certainly still rising.
In addition to his professional NBA career, Andre has also an international career as a part of the US national team. Thanks partly to him, the team won the gold medals at the 2009 FIBA Americas U16 Championship, the 2010 FIBA World U17 Championship, as well as at the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup, all of which contributed to his net worth.
