NBA: Cavaliers Reportedly Land Andrew Bynum For 2 Years, $24 M

Jul 10 2013, 11:50pm CDT | by

Andrew Bynum has reportedly agreed to a two-year deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Andrew Bynum has reportedly agreed to a two-year deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers. 

According to ESPN, Bynum struck a deal with the team which may be worth up to $24 million with a team option for the second year. Only $6 million is reported to be guaranteed, citing sources who have knowledge of the situation. 

The report also adds he needs to "reach a variety of health- and games-related benchmarks to collect the full $12 million in the first year of the deal." The Cavaliers also believe the deal, which was really pushed for by owner Dan Gilbert, is a low-risk move. Gilbert was willing to put the $6 million on the line believing the former All-Star will bounce back from a knee injury which forced him to miss the entire 2012-13 NBA season with the Philadelphia 76ers. 

He will be reunited with his former coach with the Los Angeles Lakers, Mike Brown. They spent one season together in 2011-12 which saw Bynum produce 18.7 points, 11.8 rebounds while earning an All-Star nod along the way.  

Bynum's signing higlights a productive offseason for Cleveland. Aside from Brown's re-hiring, they selected UNLV standout Anthony Bennett with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft and reached agreements with forward Earl Clark and guard Jarrett Jack. 

Bynum was traded to the Sixers in August as part of the four-team deal that sent Dwight Howard to the Lakers.

With the Boston Celtics' NBA future so up in the air right now, it is tough not to grasp at straws. The state of flux appears to be ongoing this summer and building blocks can't clearly be defined. New arrival Tyler Zeller is a young, skilled, 7'0" big man, something this current Celtics team desperately needs. However, is a guy who played just 15 minutes a game last season for a bad Cleveland Cavaliers team, one you want to hang your hat on as a building block to future suc ...

Lakers Left to Ponder What Might Have Been After Knicks Hire Derek Fisher

Jun 10 2014 9:57am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

LOS ANGELES — We are not granted a clear vision of what might have been. That's the trick in every decision we make in life, big or small: Pick a path, and either own it or start second-guessing it, because no one actually lives in a Frank Capra movie at Christmastime to be acquainted with what transpires along the untraveled road. The closest we can come is to imagine what might've been. Some other day you try the dish you didn't ...

The Pacers went all-in and failed. So now what?

Jun 2 2014 11:02am CDT | Source: SBNation

The Indiana Pacers put all their chips on the table to win a championship this year. Now, they'll feel the effects of squandering future assets to make that happen. The discourse at the time mostly avoided it, but the Indiana Pacers made many mistakes last offseason. Many, many mistakes. Most of them in one offseason-defining deal with the Phoenix Suns. Trading away Miles Plumlee, a legitimate and cheap young center prospect, for a 33 year old backup ...
