As the free agent market continues to shrivel up, former Lakers and Sixers (though he never actually played for them) center Andrew Bynum was one of the final dominoes to fall. Given his injury history, it was a bit of a mystery what Bynum would demand in the open market, but that mystery has been solved. Bynum reportedly had meetings and serious talks with three teams, the Dallas Mavericks, Atlanta Hawks, and Cleveland Cavaliers. Ultimately, Bynum went with the Cavs, and has agreed to a two-year, 24.5 million dollar team.
Here are the details via the always reliable Adrian Wojnarowski:
Andrew Bynum’s deal w/ Cleveland will include $6 million of $12M guaranteed in year 1, league source says. Team option of $12.5M for 14-’15.

Cavs will have until next summer to decide on picking up Bynum’s option for the ’14-’15 season, source tells Y! ESPN reported Bynum choice.

The key for the Cavs, more so than signing Bynum, is having fail-safes in place in case Bynum is once again sidelined for an extended period of time. If healthy, Bynum brings a dynamic angle to the Cavs team, and easily makes them a threat to make the playoffs this upcoming season. However, that is a BIG if at this point.
