First, go with the basics. Make sure the Lugs are tight and noe are stripped. Then pull the drum and lay it on the floor and make sure it isn't warped or bent. Check the splines on the stub axle and inside the drum. I would then take the drum and the wheel from the other side and mount it to the new side to make sure the problem stays on the same side. If it moves, you know it's the drum or the wheel.

Is the play axial or radial? If it's in and out, while facing the tire, you might not have the bearing spacer that goes between the inner and outer bearings. Look at the axle nut, does one axle poke out of the nut more than the other?
