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.

Do Cleveland Cavaliers Still Need More Outside Shooting?

Three-point shooting seems to be all the rage in the NBA these days. It's not only the quickest way to mount a dramatic comeback, but also serves as a valuable momentum builder (or killer) when used effectively. The world champion San Antonio Spurs led the NBA in three-point percentage (39.7 percent), and 11 of the 14 top deep-shooting teams reached the playoffs. The six worst three-point shooting squads all missed out on the postseason. Cle ...
