Found January 31, 2014 on Waiting For Next Year:

The Indiana Pacers are planning on signing former Cleveland Cavaliers center Andrew Bynum, according to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst on Friday night. Windhorst, the former Plain Dealer star beat writer, later added that the Indianapolis Star was first to report of the Pacers meeting today with Bynum. There is no deal in place yet but talks are serious. Bynum, 26, was traded to the Chicago Bulls back on Jan. 7 along with a handful of future draft picks for small forward Luol Deng. The Bulls promptly released him and he later cleared waivers. The two-time All-Star last played for the Cavs on Dec. 26. He was reportedly in Cleveland earlier on Friday, as shared by The Plain Dealer’s Mary Schmitt Boyer. At the time, he was boarding a flight for Indianapolis, was still looking for any NBA work and was not following the Cavaliers drama of the past week. Although the Bynum signing resulted in Deng, his play for the Cavaliers this season left much to be desired. He shot just 41.9% from the field. The Cavs offense had an abysmal 93.9 offensive rating with him on the court in his 480 minutes. The Pacers are led by All-Stars Roy Hibbert and Paul George. Ian Mahinmi backs up the center Hibbert and averages 16 minutes per game. Considering Bynum played at a sub-average level in Cleveland, it would be surprising to see him make any substantial difference this season. But crazier things have certainly happened. After all, not many people expected him to play as early as he did this season. [Related: Know your CBA: Kyrie Irving unlikely to leave Cleveland soon] – Photo: Scott Sargent/WFNY
