Cavaliers take a risk and sign center Andrew Bynum to a two year deal

The Cleveland Cavaliers have won the Andrew Bynum sweepstakes as they signed him to a two-year deal worth 24 million dollars. In the second year Cavaliers have a team option and only 6 million is guaranteed. In order for Andrew Bynum to received the full $12 million he would have to stay healthy and games-related benchmarks. Both Atlanta and Dallas were after Bynum, but neither made an offer and Bynum decided to sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Andrew Bynum made his decision on Wednesday after three consecutive meetings with Cleveland, Dallas, and Atlanta. The Dallas Mavericks were concerned regarding his health and decided not to outbid the Cavs. The Cavaliers are encouraged by recent MRI results and hope Bynum will be ready for training camp. The Cavaliers have had a good offseason signing Jarrett Jack, Earl Clark, and drafting Anthony Bennett. Andrew Bynum will be reunited with Cavaliers coach Mike Brown, who coached with the Lakers in 2011-2012 season. The 2013-2014 starting lineup for Cleveland Cavaliers will be PG Kyrie Irving, SG Dion Waiters, SF Anthony Bennett, PF Tristan Thompson, and C Andrew Bynum.
