Cavaliers officially sign Andrew Bynum
The Cavaliers have officially signed Andrew Bynum to a two-year deal.
The Cavaliers made it official Friday morning: Andrew Bynum is headed to Cleveland.
“We are very happy to welcome Andrew to Cleveland and the Cavaliers organization,” said general manager Chris Grant in a release. “His talent, size and experience clearly have the potential to very positively impact our team. He has the ability to strengthen the foundation we are creating and continue to be very excited about. At the same time, we are fully aware of where he is in his journey to get back on the court and will provide every resource possible to support and enhance this process."
According to Ken Berger of CBSSports.com, Bynum agreed to a two-year deal worth $24.5 million. The second year is a team option, and only half of the first season's $12 million is guaranteed.
Bynum, who was the key piece for the 76ers in the four-team Dwight Howard trade last summer, missed all of the 2012-13 season because of knee issues. Bynum has undergone multiple surgeries and treatments on both of his knees, and with him sitting all of last season there's obviously concern and trepidation about his long-term viability.
In his last season of action, 2011-12, Bynum, 26, averaged 18.7 points and 11.8 rebounds playing for the Lakers.
