Report: Andrew Bynum Signs With The Cavaliers

Andrew Bynum

According to ESPN’s Chris Broussard, Andrew Bynum is headed to the Cleveland Cavaliers. After meeting with a host of other teams over the last week, it seems the big man, who failed to even dress for the 76ers last year, will be headed to Ohio.

ESPN.com’s Chris Broussard broke the story in the last hour:

And Fox Sports Ohio’s Chis Amico confirmed the report.

Yahoo! Sports Adrian Wojnarowski has the details on the two-year contract that could possibly end up paying him $24.5 million over the length of the deal. The second year of the contract is a team option, and only $6 million is guaranteed in the first year as the Cavs try and arm themselves against a repeat of this past season. In 2012-13, Bynum’s time with the Sixers was a calamity as he failed to appear in a single game while battling a succession of knee maladies.

Do you think the Cavalirs made the right offer to Bynum, and will he get out on the court this season?

    Good move for Cavs…don’t know that they are really setup for much more than an 8th seed depending on the health of not just Bynum, but Kyrie needs to be working on his fragility issues as well…With everyone healthy 7/8 seed with a good big man edge to deal with…

    This is a surprisingly good contract offer for both sides. Cavs didn’t have to move anyone to sign him and with only 6m guaranteed, that isn’t too risky.
