As of yesterday morning, Andrew Bynum’s decision on where to play next season and potentially beyond came down to the Dallas Mavericks and Cleveland Cavaliers. After meeting with the Mavericks, Bynum decided to sign with the Cavaliers. His agreement is a two-year, incentive-laden deal that guarantees him $6 million of a possible $24.5 million, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.Wojnarowski provided a breakdown of the deal on Twitter, noting that Bynum can earn up to $12 million during the 13-14 season and another $12.5 million in 14-15. The Cavaliers hold a team option for the 14-15 season, which they will have until next summer to make a decision on.Andrew Bynum's deal w/ Cleveland will include $6 million of $12M guaranteed in year 1, league source says.

It appears the hope is that the Cavaliers prove competitive enough next season to attract LeBron James back prior to the start of the 14-15 campaign, during which time he’s expected to opt out of his current contract and hit the open market once again.Follow @hoopsinjurynews
