With Dwight Howard already signed to a contract, some teams have moved their focus on Andrew Bynum. The Cleveland Cavaliers have already offered the injury prone center a two-year $24 million contract, and Bynum also has interest from the Dallas Mavericks and the Atlanta Hawks. According to Ken Berger of CBS Sports, Bynum should make his decision as soon as today (Tuesday).
While he considers a two-year offer from Cleveland, Andrew Bynum is meeting with Hawks officials in Atlanta on Tuesday and expects to make a decision later in the day, league sources told CBSSports.com.
“There should be a deal today,” said a person familiar with the negotiations.
Some sources are also saying that the Cavs are the favorites to land Bynum at this point, in part because the big man wants to play with Kyrie Irving.
Whoever ends up signing Bynum will not give him more than one-year of guaranteed money, but he will still get paid a large amount of money, as he could pay off big time if he stays healthy.
