If you were wondering what NBA star Andre Drummond was doing in the offseason, Nickelodeon has the answer.

The Detroit Pistons center is a guest star on new Nick show “Jagger Eaton’s Mega Life,” which is set to premiere on Friday, Sept. 9, at 7:30 p.m.

Drummond joins 15-year-old skateboarding phenomenon Jagger Eaton as he gives kids a glimpse into the lives of fearless, world-class athletes in the action docu-series.

“It was a blast shooting with Jagger. Dunking isn’t easy, especially when you’re 5-foot-4, and Jagger nailed it. Little kid, big potential,” the 2016 NBA All-Star player told TheWrap after Jagger used slam-dunk champ Kenny Dobbs to hone his game.

Nickelodeon also announced Monday that New England Patriots star Rob Gronkowski’s viral video series “Crashletes” is coming back for Season 2 on Sept. 16 at 7 p.m., with Jagger making a crossover appearance on that show. Along with co-hosts Stevie Nelson and Brandon Broady, Gronk will also be joined by Von Miller from the Denver Broncos, skateboarder Tony Hawk and L.A. Lakers play Nick Young.

Throughout the season on “Jagger Eaton’s Mega Life,” the host will also hang out with Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh, Olympic snowboarder Louie Vito, NASCAR drivers Harrison Burton and Bubba Wallace, professional diver Liz Parkinson, and hip-hop dance crew Jabbawockeez.

The premiere episode finds Eaton preparing for a huge skate contest in his hometown of Phoenix, Arizona, meets up with Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald and Bellator MMA fighter Keri Taylor-Melendez.

“Jagger Eaton’s Mega Life” is created by Rob Dyrdek and Shane Nickerson of Superjacket Productions (“Crashletes,” “Fantasy Factory,” “Ridiculousness”).
